It was a new event introduced into the 2018 Poker Masters competition, and the turnout proved to be worthy of the innovation. The final table for Event #4: $10,000 Short Deck Poker has been set and many familiar names will be ready to battle it out in one of the newest variations of poker.
Dominik Nitsche (4,980,000) and Andrew Robl (4,865,000) will lead the final six players when the action gets underway inside the PokerGO Studio at the Aria Resort and Casino. Nitsche overtook Robl for the lead in the latter stages of Day 1 in what was an action-packed day with plenty of all-ins. While Nitsche holds a slight chip lead and would likely be favored in a standard Texas Hold'em event, Robl appears to have the experience and the edge in the Short Deck format.
Final Table Lineup
The action is scheduled to get underway at 12:00 noon and will be streamed on PokerGO with a 60-minute delay. The ante will be increased to 30,000 at the start of the day with 30-minute levels in play. Everyone remaining is guaranteed to walk away with at least $33,000 but will all have their sights set on the $176,000 first-place prize.
