The 2018 Poker Masters is officially underway. Over the next week, the world’s best will compete across seven High Roller events for the title of Poker Masters champion. The Poker Masters Purple Jacket awaits and “Today at the Poker Masters” will take you through the highest stakes week of the year with daily updates from the PokerGO Studio.
When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground.
Lives aren’t at stake at Poker Masters, but there are added stakes heading into Day 2 of the $100,000 Main Event. Moving day will not only decide the final table lineup for Saturday’s Poker Masters finale, but could also decide the 2018 Poker Masters Champion. The Purple Jacket is up for grabs and three players are still fighting for the most fashionable trophy in poker.
As we mentioned earlier today, Ali Imsirovic controls his own destiny. If the two-time winner makes the podium in Event 7, he is guaranteed the Purple Jacket. If Imsirovic stumbles on Day 2, he opens the door for Brandon Adams and Isaac Haxton.
Both players re-entered the Main Event at the start of Day 2. While they each have significantly more High Roller experience than Imsirovic, they also both trail the current leader by a significant margin. Adams is 150 points behind, while Haxton is 180 points back. They’ve left themselves little margin for error in the biggest event of the series.
Back-to-back wins move @aliImsirovic to the top of the #PokerMasters Championship Standings. Heading into the $100K Main Event, only @badams78, @ikepoker, @Jake__Schindler, and @benyupoker can catch him!
