High Stakes Poker Returns To Aria Las Vegas
The Aria first welcomed back high stakes Poker through its doors earlier this year in January, when a couple dozen players turned up for the great reliving of the era of High Roller events. Players were willing to give it all a go owing to the many health and safety precautions in place at the time. A total of three High Roller events featuring $10,000 buy-ins were played in total.
Small But Great Beginnings
Even though the overall attendance was below average – or at least lower than during pre-health crisis times – those players intent on making high-stakes action happen certainly did their part. They included Christopher Brewer, Dan Smith, and Cary Katz, all of whom walked away winners with high-stakes titles and prize money firmly tucked into their back pockets.
More events are coming soon to the Aria, with high-stakes events planned for February 25, February 26, and February 27, which are a Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, and unbeatable way to get any Poker weekend off to a phenomenal start. All of the upcoming events will be hosted in the Aria’s namesake Poker room, and all single events will offer rake-free access to those who register early.
Levels will all play out at 40 minutes apiece, and breaks will take place after every two levels (or 80 minutes) played. A dinner break will be announced after Level 6.
Good News For Poker
Everybody present will be expected to follow the necessary health and safety protocols – including the wearing of masks by all staff at the Aria. Strick rules will reportedly be enforced as far as social distancing and adequate personal protection are concerned.
The latest season of High Stakes Poker will in the meantime continue to be aired on PokerGO, with all-new episodes expected to be aired every Wednesday. Those who missed previous episodes are able to play catch-up by watching past runs via the same platform.
High Stakes Poker making a return to the famous Aria is a big and important event for many players and fans. And it certainly bodes well for a return to normalcy for fans of the game.
