Poker Masters Event #6 Day 1 Recap
This event can be summarized very briefly by emphasizing the heater Ali Imsirovic was on from start to finish. With three remaining tables, Imsirovic started a heroic run that leads to one of the biggest chip lead in high roller event history.
Imsirovic notched up a double knockout by sending Isaac Haxton and Dan Smith to the rail when his queens held up versus fives and king-queen suited, putting him at a million chips with 16 players remaining. The Bosnian born pro hailing from Washington State continued by busting Matt Hyman, Daniel Negreanu, Nick Schulman, Rainer Kempe, Elio Fox, and Bryn Kenny to almost single-handedly bringing the event down to its final six.
Here’s the seat draw of the final six players that you can catch on NBC Sports tonight.
