The 56-player field is ready since months ago. The organization first announced 20 guests and later made a raffle to decide which players would be at the prestigous tournament. Players such as Brian Rast (2015 SHRB champion), Rainer Kempe (2016 SHRB champion) will be joined by Fedor Holz , Daniel Negreanu , Antonio Esfandiari and Phil Hellmuth .
This year the organization changed some rules despite the opinion of most players. Players can’t wear sun glasses and must wear suit and tie. The tournament will have a shot-clock and the players will only have 30 seconds to act with five 60-second cards to extend their time. The tournament begins this Sunday and will end next Thursday with Poker Central broadcasting all the action.
