Mustapha Kanit and Ali Imsirovic helped themselves to their second Poker Masters Online titles of the series, doing so in style on April 25. Both players are respected and feared in equal measures and it is easy to see why. Let’s check out which events they took down.
Poker Masters #28: $500K Gtd NLHE 6-Max
Kanit was one of 76-entrants in the $500,000 guaranteed NLHE 6-Max event that saw $760,000 shared among the top 12 finishers. Sadly, no members of Team partypoker made it into the money, but some legitimate superstars of the game did.
Former MILLIONS Online champion Jon Van Fleet, Ole Schemion, Dan Smith, and David Peters secured some cash. As did Juan Pardo whose seventh-place exit banked him $24,700 in addition to setting the final table.
Pascal Hartmann was the final table’s first casualty, his six-place exit locking up $32,300. Timothy Adams and Koray Aldemir were the next to bust, they saw $47,500 and $66,500 added to their partypoker accounts.
Sergi Reixach is no stranger to major final tables, but he couldn’t quite get the job done this time around. Reixach finished in third place and walked away with $91,200 for his efforts.
Heads-up saw Kanit and Matthias Eibinger lock horns for the top prize and the glory. It was Kanit who emerged from the battle victoriously, getting his hands on $237,732 and resigning Eibinger to the $148,200 consolation prize.
Poker Masters #27: $1M Gtd NLHE 8-Max
Event 27 was a $1 million guaranteed affair that saw $1,275,000 paid out to the top seven finishers. Austria’s Christian Rudolph was the unfortunate soul who popped the money bubble, his eighth-place finish locking up at least $60,562 for the surviving players.
That was the sum awarded to Ben Heath who was the next to fall. David peters reeled in the $73,312 sixth-place prize before Linus Loeliger fell by the wayside and turned his $25,500 investment into $89,250.
The first six-figure prize of the tournament went to the awesome Dutchman Jorryt Van Hoof. He collected $114,750 and yet another final table appearance.
Heads-up was set when Alexandros Kolonias busted in third for $191,250. Kolonias won a Poker Masters title last week and came agonisingly close once again.
Elias Talvitie and Ali Imsirovic were the final two players and either of them could have taken this tournament down. Only one player could and Imsirovic was that player. First place, and Imsirovic’s second Poker master online title, weighed in at $446,250 with second-place being worth $299,625.
Final Day of This Epic Series
April 26 sees the final two events of this epic series. At 20:00, some of the world’s elite players will exchange $51,000 to compete in the $2 million guaranteed Main Event. Two hours later, a $500,000 guaranteed NLHE 6-Max event wraps up the festival.
