Who is supposed to play?
As with most poker tournaments, it’s usually difficult to determine exactly who is going to show up and fight on the felt. For the next Poker Masters, we have a good idea of who might show up.
The first is Daniel Negreanu, who announced on the DAT Poker podcast and on social media that he will be playing at the Poker Masters. Then, we have Winner of the PokerGO Cup 2022 Jeremy Ausmus, who posted shares on a notable staking platform. Along with Ausmus, Cary Katz, Josh Arieh, Alex Livingston and Dan Colpoys brought the Poker Masters action online.
Then we can take a look at the PGT Ranking, as many of those in the top 30-40 spots are likely to get in on the Poker Masters action. Stephen Chidwick is the current favorite in the PGT rankings, then PGT regulars such as Jason Koon, Alex Foxen and Sean Winter are in the top 10.
Names like Nick Petrangelo, David Peters, Sam Soverel, Brock Wilson, Chino Rheem, Erik Seidel and Shannon Shorr are all in the top 50 of the PGT rankings but currently outside the top 21. With the top 21 players in the PGT rankings, the qualifying to compete in the season-ending PGT Championship for a chance at a win-win prize of $500,000, these are names we think will be in the mix in hopes of improving their position.
History of the masters of poker
The Poker Masters 2022 marks the seventh edition of the high-stakes tournament series. There have been five live versions of Poker Masters and two online versions.
The first Poker Masters took place in 2017 and featured five tournaments. Germany’s Steffen Sontheimer won two of the five events before claiming the first-ever purple jacket. In 2018, Ali Imsirovic won two of the seven events in the series to earn himself a purple jacket. Then in 2019, it was Sam Soverel who won two events to win the purple jacket.
Both online versions of the Poker Masters took place in 2020 when live poker came to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic. Alexandros Kolonias won the Poker Masters Online 2020 and Eelis Parssinen won the PLO Poker Masters Online 2020 series.
In 2021, Australian poker sensation Michael Addamo won the Poker Masters Purple Jacket before winning Super High Roller Bowl VI for $3,402,000.
The Super High Roller Bowl immediately follows Poker Masters
Speaking of Super High Roller Bowl, the next edition of the famous event should take place one day after the end of Poker Masters. The Poker Masters will end on Monday, October 3 with the final table of Event #12: $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em, then the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl VII will begin on Wednesday, October 5. .
Super High Roller Bowl VII is scheduled as a three-day tournament, with all three days being streamed live on PokerGO.
|Wed 10/5||Super High Roller Bowl VII Day 1||$300,000|
|Game 10/6||Super High Roller Bowl VII Day 2||$300,000|
