The €5,000 Luxon Pay High Roller Championship is just 20 minutes from kickoff and we may have only six names in the player list so far, but that will soon change. The second of our supersats is still running and due to award eight seats very shortly, plus those high rollers are notorious for making a fashionably late entrance to these things. And don’t forget, this is only Day 1 – the really cool kids can buy in all the way up to Level 10 at 2.20pm on Day 2 tomorrow if they want to.
The keen early reg-ers nevertheless include some pretty fearsome names – Chris Dowling, John Eames and Marc Macdonnell are among them. This list will become increasingly terrifying as those with €5,000 just lying around to chuck at a card game wander leisurely in at whatever time suits them best. Please stand by.
