The 2017 Poker Masters is scheduled from September 13 (Wednesday) to September 20 (Wednesday) at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. Events 1 through 4 consists of a buy-in worth $50,000 each, while the final event #5 has a $100,000 buy-in.
So far, here are the results from the finished events.
Nick Schulman has become the victor in the first $50,000 NLHE buy-in event of the inaugural c high-stakes tournament series.
Around 50 players have participated in the first $50,000 NLHE event, and it was Schulman who dominated, earning $918,000 as his reward. This prize amount is actually his second-biggest in his career, and now his total live tournament wins are more than $10 million!
This is also his second $50,000 High Roller event that he won this year, as he successfully dominated in the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open $50,000 Super High Roller held in August, winning $440,000 in the process.
On Saturday, the 2013 PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (10th Anniversary) kicked off at Atlantis in The Bahamas. First out was the the $100,000 Super High Roller which saw a field of 47 players (Phil Ivey, Antonio Esfandiari, Daniel Negreanu etc) who accounted for 57 entries (10 re-buys).
152 players have become only 19 after 4 days of play, and now only 1 more player has to hit the rail before the tournament has reached the money and all players are guaranteed at least $40,266. Hafiz Khan (picture) leads the pack with 1,966,000, closely followed by Marvin Rettenmaier with 1,870,000, and nick Schulman is in 3rd place with 1,315,000.
The third day of the WPT World Championship has come to and end with about 45 players (WPT is still verifying the number of players). Michael Mizrachi, who lead the way into Day 3 with 428k, is among the players who are through to Day 4.
But he will "only" bring 171,700 chips to the tables when play continues again today. Isaac Haxton was in 5th place when the day started, but unfortunately nothing worked out for the American High-Stakes Pro as he was eliminated during the day.
Event #27: $10,000 Limit Hold'em Championship attracted a field of 152 players. Now, after 16 levels of play, there are only 24 players left. Isaac Haxton is the chip leader with a 380,000 stack. In second place is Steve Landfish with 328k chips, and Brock Parker with 280,000 in third place. Apart from Haxton, notables players like Barry Greenstein & Nick Sculman still have chips left. Unfortunately Daniel Negreanu, who was leading the tournament for some time, was knocked out in 26th place.
18 of the remaining players will receive a share from the total prize pool of $1,428,800. The winner will get not less than $378,642, and the runner-up spot pays $233,944. Now, let's hope that some big names reach the final table, which will be played tomorrow.
It almost feels like it was yesterday that the main event of EPT Monte Carlo started, but here we are, 4 days later, with only 24 remaining players. Among these 24 players, who have survived a field of 848 players, we find notables such as Nick Schulman and Ramzi Jelassi. Unfortunately neither of them are in the top of the felt at the moment. But both of them are far more experienced than many of the other remaining players. Lets hope that their routine will be enough to take them all the way to tomorrow's final table. Ladies and gentlemen, some serious prize money is getting closer and closer! It will be a final table not to miss out on tomorrow!
413 players made it to Day 2 of the tournament - 116 of them will return to the tables today and play day 3 of the tournament. These 116 player are now to battle for some serious money. Chip leader is no one else than Nick Schulman, the man who won the fourth season of WPT and has lots of great results in other major tournaments.
Other notables in the top of the field of remaining players are Chris Moneymaker (457,000), Sami "LarsLuzak" Kelopuro (552,000), Victoria Coren (236,500) and Ramzi Jelassi (411,000). There are a few other familiar faces left in the tournament as well, however, they can be found further down in the field.
