The third and final day of the $100,000 Poker Masters Championship goes live exclusively on PokerGO at 5:30 pm ET with $1.5 million and the Poker Masters Purple Jacket™ up for grabs. Steffen Sontheimer dominated the Series with four final tables and heads a German group of contenders – chip leader Fedor Holz, Christian Christner and Stefan Schillhabel. Two American players, Justin Bonomo and Seth Davies, made the final table, but return at the bottom of the counts.
Holz finished runner-up in Event #2 to Sontheimer and has the best chance to overtake his countryman for the top prize. Christner finished fifth at that same final table and has two outright High Roller wins at the ARIA already in 2017.
Davies didn’t play the preliminary events and opted for just the Championship Event. Bonomo final tabled Event #4 for $175,500 and hopes to build on that momentum to challenge for the Jacket.
Sontheimer leads the Purple Jacket Standings and can arrange for it to be tailored should he finish second or better. Holz can overtake the lead in Sontheimer only if Holz takes first or second and Sontheimer bows out in sixth place. Sontheimer brings $1.221 million and Holz has $550,000 in Poker Masters earnings up to this point. Christner, Bonomo and Davies can take the Jacket with a win and if Sontheimer bows out in sixth or fifth.
Ali Nejad and David Williams return to the broadcast booth on PokerGO a final time to call all the action, with Maria Ho anchoring reports from the field and players.
