The 2018 Poker Masters is officially underway. Over the next week, the world’s best will compete across seven High Roller events for the title of Poker Masters champion. The Poker Masters Purple Jacket awaits and “Today at the Poker Masters” will take you through the highest stakes week of the year with daily updates from the PokerGO Studio.
After Brandon Adams bagged the Event 1 chip lead, the former INSIDERS star said, “Hopefully, tomorrow I have a win or a top-three finish and carry that momentum forward.” Adams recorded a 4th place result in the opening $10,000 No Limit Hold’em event and while he missed out on a top-three finish, Adams hasn’t missed on much since.
A day later, Adams returned to the final table and then the Poker Masters winner’s circle. He defeated Jared Jaffee for the $25,000 No Limit Hold’em title and the win moved Adams to the top of the Poker Masters Championship Standings.
The Event 2 winner’s lead will increase as Poker Masters hits the midway point. Brandon Adams has already locked up 60 points for making his third consecutive Poker Masters final table and could pick up an additional 300 points if he can claim his second win of 2018. A tough Pot Limit Omaha lineup will make that difficult for Lieutenant Lavender.
Isaac Haxton is the only other player at the Event 3 final table that has already opened his Poker Masters account. Haxton finished 6th in Event 1 and a podium finish would put him in the thick of Purple Jacket contention heading into the bigger events of the series. Those big buy-in events begins Wednesday, after Short Deck debuts to start the week.
The $10,000 buy-in event should attract a wide variety of players and ARIA is excited to bring the game to the PokerGO Studio. The new game will officially debut Monday, but won’t hit PokerGO until Tuesday.
To watch Adams go for another Poker Masters win at the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha final table and for the debut of Short Deck on Tuesday, subscribe to PokerGO. You can also relive previous final tables with on-demand replays, along with the rest of the highest stakes week of the year.
