The inaugural Poker Masters Online continued on April 13 with two more high stakes events. This brace of tournaments had combined guarantees weighing in at $1 million, but $1,850,000 was awarded thanks to some of the world’s biggest stars heading to partypoker.
Michael Watson Wins Poker Masters Event #4
The fourth event of the series was a $10,300 buy-in $500,000 Gtd No-Limit Hold’em 8-Max affair that drew in a crowd of 102 entries.
The tournament didn’t exactly go to plan for Team partypoker’s Roberto Romanello he busted well before the money. At least he didn’t have to endure finishing in 17th place like Lukas Nowakowski did and receive the unwanted title of bubble boy.
Nowakowski’s exit locked up $20,400 for the surviving players. This increased to $33,150 by the time the final table was set.
Pauli Ayras fell in eighth and collected $33,150 before our very own Patrick Leonard got his hands on the $40,800 seventh-place prize. Leonard was joined on the rail first by Karim Khayat then by Wiktor Malinowski who scooped $51,000 and $66,300 respectively.
UK-based Turkish high roller Orpen Kisacikoglu finished fourth for $89,250 before Dutchman Jorryt Van Hoof collected the $127,500 third-place prize.
Heads-up saw two of Canada’s finest lock horns. Michael Watson and Sam Greenwood fought it out in what was essentially a $71,400 heads-up sit & go as this was the difference in prize money. It was Watson who emerged from the battle victoriously, scooping the $249,900 top prize and leaving Greenwood to win $178,500.
Andras Nemeth Makes Amends For Irish Open Runner-Up Finish
Hungarian superstar Andras Nemeth made up for falling at the final hurdle of the 2020 Irish Open Main Event by taking down the Poker Masters Event #05: $500K Gtd No-Limit Hold’em 6-Max. Nemeth won €325,422 for his second-place finish in the Irish Open, this victory saw his bankroll swell by $259,628.
Nemeth got his hands on the top prize after defeating Kisacikoglu heads-up; the Turkish runner-up netted a healthy $161,850.
Earlier at the final table, Sami Kelopuro busted in sixth for $35,275 and Poker Central’s own Dan Shak collected $51,875 for a fifth-place exit.
Germany legend Fedor Holz banked the $72,625 fourth-place prize and Eelis Parssinen got his hands on $99,600 when he crashed out in third place.
Shout out to our own Joni Jouhkimainen who missed out on a final table appearance but still won $26,975 courtesy of finishing in ninth place.
