David Peters Wins 2018 Poker Masters Main Event ($1,150,000)

The 2018 Poker Masters has officially come to a close with the completion of the $100k Main Event. David Peters came out on top after a grueling final day, eventually defeating Dan Smith heads up to take home the title. Despite not being able to catch Ali Imsirovic in the race for the purple jacket, Peters did come out on top as the overall most money earned throughout the series.

The grand finale to Poker Masters wrapped up on PokerGO with Event 1 winner David Peters putting a bow on the series with a win in the $100,000 Main Event. Peters defeated a tough crowd of 25 players and earned $1.15 million for his efforts. The final table aired with Dan Smith, Koray Aldemir, and Bryn Kenney all competing for the biggest prize of Poker Masters.

Relive the entire final table here:

Kenney busted in fourth to German foe Aldemir. The short stack for the whole bubble and final table, Kenney didn’t have one last run in him and departed the PokerGO Studio with his third cash of the series.

The skill of Peters is unquestioned but even the best need to get lucky sometimes. Peters rivered perfect against Aldemir midway through the day to regain his footing as chip leader to continue marching toward the title.

Smith and Peters wound up heads up in a battle between two of the best American players in the High Roller game. The all-in magic of Peters was far from over and he found the card he needed once again to claim the title.

Peters ends up 10 points behind the only other two-time winner at Poker Masters, Ali Imsirovic. The Purple Jacket belongs to Imsirovic but Peters wraps up his High Roller week as the highest grossing player.
