“We’re extremely pleased to have such a fantastic response to the first ever European Super High Roller event and we look forward to welcoming some of the biggest names in international poker,” EPT President Edgar Stuchly told PokerStars’ blog.
Blom won a $100K buy-in event earlier this year at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure, while Katchalov won the PCA high-roller event two years ago.
It remains to be seen whether some of the other biggest names in poker will join the tournament, such as Tom “durrrr” Dwan, Phil Ivey, and Phil Hellmuth.
