David Peters and Brandon Adams Win Opening Events at 2018 Poker Masters

The 2019 Poker Masters concluded at the ARIA in Las Vegas this week following a dominant series run by Sam Soverel.

This year’s Poker Masters was comprised of 10 high roller events. Soverel delivered a very impressive performance throughout the series with seven cashes out of the 10 events and two tournament wins, including the $50,000 Main Event.

Soverel’s first win at this year’s Poker Masters came in Event 7, the $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament. He outlasted a 34-player field to cash $340,000.

In the $50,000 Main Event Soverel faced off against another 34-player field made up of some of the top high-roller poker players in the world including Alex Foxen, Brynn Kenney, Ali Imsirovic and Kahle Burns. Burns actually eliminated Soverel at one point, but he bought back in before cruising to the Main Event win.

In the Main Event it came down to Soverel and Chris Hunichen heads-up for the tournament title. Soverel began what ended up being a short heads-up battle with a near 4-to-1 chip lead. On the final hand Soverel pushed all-in with Q-10 and Hunichen called with pocket twos. When another Queen landed on the boarded it was all over for Hunichen.

Soverel’s two wins and seven cashes at the Poker Masters earned him in total $1,396,800. That bumps his career live-poker earnings up to just over$12.8 million.

Soverel finished the Poker Masters with 1160 points which gave him a huge lead in the event standings over Burns and Chance Kornuth who tied for second with 630 points. Soverel received the illustrious purple jacket which has previously been won by Imsirovic and Steffen Sontheimer.
