Ali Imsirovic wins Purple Jacket at 2018 Poker Masters

Tags: Ali Imsirovic, Poker Masters, Steffen Sontheimer.
Posted on Monday, September 17, 2018 by "T".

A 23-year-old highstakes newcomer makes three cashes and takes down two titles for more than $1.2 million at the 2018 Poker Masters, and thanks to these accomplishments, he also gets the coveted Purple Jacket in the end!

The 2018 Poker Masters was scheduled on September 6 to 15. According to the website, The Poker Masters revolutionizes the high roller landscape with a week of tournament poker at the highest stakes. The series pits the best players in the world against one another in a series of events, each with 7-figure prize pools. Millions will be won every day, but only the richest of the rich will be named the Poker Masters Champion and awarded the Purple Jacket by netting the highest earnings across the whole series. There's no time to be "one and done" as consistency is key at the Poker Masters.

The inaugural Poker Masters Purple Jacket winner last year was German poker pro Steffen Sontheimer, who said, "The Poker Masters is about the best of the best challenging each other for nine straight days. It's draining but also one of the most exciting tournaments of the year." He won two out of a total of five events in the 2017 series, cashing in for $2,733,000.


Ali Imsirovic truly had a breakout performance in this year's Poker Masters high roller tournament. At only 23 years old, the poker pro from Vancouver, Washington managed to successfully cash in three times from the seven-event series, amassing $1,288,600 in winnings and grabbing two titles. He dominated in back-to-back events:

The $25,000 buy-in NLHE on September 13 Wednesday

And then the $50,000 buy-in NLHE just a day after...


These two triumphs and an 8th-place rank in the series' kickoff $10,500 buy-in event, Imsirovic earned ample ranking points to qualify as the winner of the 2018 Poker Masters Purple Jacket.

Imsirovic said after he has secured the jacket, "There are very few things that can compare to this. This win is very prestigious for me because this event series has all the top players in the world. I know the World Series of Poker main event is seen as more prestigious, but in that event, you need to get very lucky across nine days battling against a below average field. In these fields, you constantly have to play your best because otherwise, you're just going to get destroyed."

Imsirovic managed to win his very first live tournament event almost three years ago. Prior to this incredible achievement at Poker Masters, he had earnings just over $1.1 million in live lifetime earnings. Thanks to his win in the $25,000 event last week, he now has set a new personal best for biggest cash, winning $462,000 after leading a field of 66 entries. Merely a day later, he improved on that record already, besting 47 entries in the $50,000 buy-in event for the biggest payday of his career, a whopping $799,000!

Imsirovic said, "There are still plenty of guys I think are much better than I am, so I got a lot of work to do. I just ran better than they did but I'm looking forward to the challenge. I'll play more with these guys in future high rollers and just try to improve and get to their level."

What can you say here. Only 23 years old and he managed to take down two titles,
for 1.2 millions USD. Not a bad way starting your career.
He can afford tons of buy ins now Smile
The one that finished on second place got more money.
And it is also the case in lower finishes also.

This guy has no taste in shirts - to wear - as far I can see but I still think jackets should be exclusively connected to hall of fame - if anything. This just looks weird on anybody let alone these twenty year olds who are winning it every year...

Very lucky and smart this boy of 23 year old. Now we can say, he has become a professional player. Two tournaments won in a few days and a great amount of money will make him play more in the future. He will win major tournaments in the future if he is ambitious.

It's certainly very cool at this age to win two tournaments and get 2.4 million dollars .... it's very cool .... a wonderful start to a poker career .... Now the main thing for him is not to relax and continue to develop his poker game .. .... and maybe in the future it will be one of the pillars of poker

This must be a tremendous achievement to finish at the very top of this list. The players' who played in this are all top players, so to come out at the very top was an outstanding feat indeed
 Gerimantas9/18/2018 4:59:13 PM GMT

Yes. Anybody who plays at the top and comes out at the top in considered a top player. Over the top might as well. Or double top.

Absolutely massive congratulations to Ali Imsirovic on being crowned champion of the the 2018 Poker Masters and winning US$1,288,600. That is a very nice-looking jacket.
He is only 23. The future looks bright for him. I wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.
 Calmplay9/25/2018 4:00:35 PM GMT
The kid said that they are a lot of players better than him even after the won this huge prize so that tells you that poker is a game which even you can beat the top of the top. Well done Ali.
