The Next Big Thing
Ali Imsirovic signaled his success to the poker world when he triumphed and became the Poker Master a year ago with the love and support of his friends and family. Winning a major poker title has launched many players onto the world stage – think of Phil Hellmuth winning the WSOP Main Event at the age of just 24 – and taking the Purple Jacket would launch anyone into the headlines. You might just see poker’s ‘next big thing’ run deep and shoot for the win in November.
Everyone loves watching poker, but there’s something special about watching two players sweat when there’s a six-figure buy-in on the turn of a card, isn’t there? With massive winnings on the line in every event of the 2019 Poker Masters, there are going to be some huge twists along the way and millions being won by the decisions the high rollers will make. Under the closest scrutiny, who’ll buckle on the bubble?
The best chat goes down when the people are most interesting, and in poker, some of the biggest characters play for the biggest money… and the Purple Jacket. From bad beats via Phil Hellmuth to trash talk via… actually, quite a few players, you won’t want to miss a second of the discussion. In 2018, the atmosphere was electric in every event.
High Roller of the Year Points
The Poker Masters festival forms part of the High Roller Triple Crown, of course, along with the U.S. Poker Open and Super High Roller Bowl, both of which you can catch up on via PokerGO. The 10 events in the Poker Masters schedule will test all the players, but if they can rack up the points, then they could win The High Roller of the Year, with point multipliers taking effect during the series.
GPI Player of the Year Race
Vital points in the High Roller of the Year race aren’t the only things up for grabs, with the GPI (Global Poker Index) bragging rights bound to be affected in a big way by what the players do at the Poker Masters. While Stephen Chidwick currently has the GPI lead, many others such as Alex Foxen, Rainer Kempe, Bryn Kenney, Manig Loeser, and Timothy Adams among others in the current Top 10 will be desperate to accumulate the points needed for an end-of-year push.
All Poker Masters events will have no rake for players that register on time. The No-Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha and Short Deck events are 7-handed while the 8-Game and Big Bet event are 6-handed. All Poker Masters events are two-day events with their final tables streamed live on PokerGO with hole-cards up.
