Local Roundup

High Roller Hold ‘Em set for Saturday

A collection of the world’s best snowboarders are set to go all in at the Heavenly High Roller Hold ’Em event from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday. In partnership with Snow Park Technologies, and hosted by two-time Olympic gold medalist Shaun White, High Roller Hold ‘Em combines the thrill of big air snowboarding with the strategy of high-stakes poker.

Joining an already stacked list of competitors– including Chas Guldemond, Sage Kotsenburg, Gjermund Braaten and Ulrik Badertscher – the field will be rounded out by Mark McMorris, Eric Willett, Pat Burgener, Eric Beauchemin, Ian Thorley and Mark Hoyt.

During the event, competitors will each be dealt three cards per hand, each featuring different tricks based on the face value of the card. From there, each rider will discard two cards, and bet accordingly on the final card in their hand. Once all bets are in, the riders who haven’t folded will head to the top of the big air jump. The rider who lands the trick with the highest level of difficulty will win the round and qualify for the $50,000 super final.

The competition will be held on World Cup, near Heavenly’s California Main Lodge, and is free of charge and open to the public.
