5TH Annual Smith Optics High Roller Event set to go down again
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 11 September, 2007 : - - The Smith Optics High Roller is once agian, set to go. You don't want to miss this one! This event basically weeds out the weak and gets started with the top of the crop from heat #1. The man on man format makes for dramatic matchups and head to head competiton that makes every heat count.
Every single one of the 24 invitees are easily capable of being crowned Champ. Last year, it was Bryan Hewitson, who took home a sweet $3200 and a 2nd HIGH ROLLER victory. He is definitley the one to beat. So, come check out this years event while you have lunch and sip on your favorite beverage at the one and only Sebastian Beach Inn on Sat. Sept. 22nd.
Since the beginning of the HIGH ROLLER in 2003, there has always been a unique format and twist in the competion. This year will be no different, each heat will have a $50 prize for the winner with a chance at a possible $100, if you can beat the dealer in the dice roll. It's the old double or nothing deal, if you loose the dice roll, you get zilch.
The extra twist on this year's competition will be in a card game. Every heat won you get a playing card, the 3 finalist will play their cards against each other, and the winner of the card game will get 2 extra minutes to surf in the final. The extra 2 minutes could completely change the outcome of the otherwise normal final. This is the event where not only your surfing counts, but your luck.....Who is the HIGH ROLLER gonna be this year? 1st place -$3000, 2nd place $1000, 3rd place $500.
