Poker Masters Event #2 of the started on Thursday afternoon with another tournament of $50,000 No-Limit Hold’Em at the ARIA Resort and Casino.
After playing for 10.5 hours, Christian Christner leads the game; he is leading the final table with seven players.
The other who is at the final table is none other than Phil Hellmuth and Steffen Sontheimer and Adrian Mateos, both of them made their second straight final table of Poker Masters. They will be joined by Bryn Kenney, Fedor Holz and Tom Marchese to round out the final seven.
Sontheimer and Mateos can overtake Nick Schulman in the race for first place for The Poker Masters Purple Jacket.
Schulman is sitting at the top of the leader board after winning the Event #1 and the prize amount of $918,000. The Event #2 winner will take the prize of $900,000 even, whereas the players at the final table are guaranteed the prize money of $125,000.
Some players who found their life of tournament short today include Daniel Negreanu, Doug Polk, Scott Seiver and Jason Koon. They all fired two bullets.
Among all Erik Seidel was the one, who battled the longest and when he left the table, he had nothing to show. He reached the final table, but has short stack all through the time. When he lost to Christner, he had less than a small blind and he became the bubble boy.
After Seidel, the next who was ousted was Dan Shak 8th place, but he pocketed $100,000 for a day’s work. He was called with pocket sevens of Holz and moved all-in with pocket ace-five. Later Holz flopped a set; he ended the play for the evening.
The final table of Event #2 will be streamed live on PokerGO on delay of a 30-minute.
