Use the guide below and make sure you don’t miss a minute of the action. Whether you’re a player or a fan, we’ve got everything you need to know.
What is the Poker Masters?
The Poker Masters is a high-stakes tournament series that takes place at the PokerGO Studio at the ARIA Resort & Casino. Hosted for the first time in 2017, the Poker Masters brings together the best of the best and some of the most entertaining players to compete in a seven-event series, featuring No-Limit Hold ‘Em, Pot Limit Omaha, and the U.S. debut of Short Deck Hold ‘Em. With buy-ins ranging from $10,000 up to $100,000, the Poker Masters sees millions of dollars exchange hands with the highly-coveted Purple Jacket™ awaiting the highest point-scorer of the week.
In 2017, Steffen Sontheimer burst onto the scene with an overwhelming Poker Masters Purple Jacket win, winning two events and making a total of four final tables. The German pro pocketed more than $2.7 million on his way to a $7 million year on the international live tournament circuit. America’s Bryn Kenney finished second overall with $1.8 million in earnings and Germany’s Fedor Holz in third with $1 million.
How Do I Watch the Poker Masters?
The 2018 Poker Masters is live and exclusively on PokerGO. With commentary provided by the familiar voice of Ali Nejad and a variety of co-commentators, you can enjoy eight straight days of live streaming starting on September 8th. The final table of each event will be streamed live, as well as the final two days of the series-ending $100,000 Event. The break desk during every broadcast will feature Jeff Platt, Maria Ho, and Brent Hanks.
Looking at last year’s participants, the Poker Masters will be one of the best poker viewing experiences of the year with the likes of Nick Schulman, Erik Seidel, Jake Schindler, Justin Bonomo, Adrian Mateos, Stephen Chidwick, Phil Hellmuth, and Dan Smith among those expected to participate.
