The last of the Poker Masters $50,000 preliminary events is a clash of new and old school. Brandon Adams represents the original generation of ‘poker boom’ players who turned book smarts into millions earned on the felt.
The new school of players features Doug Polk who preaches GTO while Adams is a literal Ph.D. A clash of philosophies for hundreds of thousands of dollars is what Poker Masters Event #4 brings to the table on PokerGO.
Adams took a hiatus from poker to focus on academic work and is back like he never left with this final table listed as his return to form. You can see more of Adams this month when he plays in the 2018 Super High Roller Bowl.
The $2 million prize pool is not without tough competitors and that is what Adams finds in his way with Polk holding guard for his generation.
Polk is at his second final table of the Poker Masters series after taking fifth place in Event #3 for a $144,000 score.
The strong selection of draws in Poker Masters prevented some elites from making their first major score until now.
Former GPI Player of the Year David Peters opens his account as does Super High Roller Bowl China victor Justin Bonomo. Both players earned a title in the 2018 U.S. Poker Open and both wins can be found on demand on PokerGO.
No Poker Masters final table is complete without at least one European player and the quota is met by Steffen Sontheimer. The leader in the Poker Masters standings adds more money to his total and sets himself up to close the deal in the $100,000 Main Event.
Filling in the blanks among the final six is Jake Schindler, who adds another cash to his growing Poker Masters total.
