Who is expected to play?
Who is anticipated to perform?
As with the majority of poker events, it is often difficult to predict precisely who will compete on the felt. For the forthcoming Poker Masters, we have a reasonable notion of who may participate.
First is Daniel Negreanu, who has said on the DAT Poker Podcast and on social media that he would be participating in Poker Masters. Jeremy Ausmus, the 2022 PokerGO Cup winner, has logged some activity on a significant staking site. In addition to Ausmus, Cary Katz, Josh Arieh, Alex Livingston, and Dan Colpoys have uploaded Poker Masters results online.
Then we may examine the PGT leaderboard, since many of the top 30 to 40 players are expected to participate in the Poker Masters. Stephen Chidwick is now in first place on the PGT scoreboard, followed by PGT veterans Jason Koon, Alex Foxen, and Sean Winter.
Nick Petrangelo, David Peters, Sam Soverel, Brock Wilson, Chino Rheem, Erik Seidel, and Shannon Shorr are among the top 50 PGT players, but not among the top 21. With the top 21 players on the PGT leaderboard qualifying to participate in the season-ending PGT Championship for a chance to earn a winner-takes-all reward of $500,000, we believe the following names will be in contention in an effort to improve their status.
Masters of Poker: A Brief History
The Poker Masters 2022 is the seventh installment of the series of high-stakes tournaments. There have been five live Poker Masters tournaments and two online tournaments.
In 2017, the first Poker Masters consisted of five events. Steffen Sontheimer of Germany earned the first-ever Purple Jacket by winning two of the five events. In 2018, Ali Imsirovic earned a Purple Jacket after winning two of the series’ seven events. In 2019, Sam Soverel won two of his own tournaments to earn the Purple Jacket.
The two online Poker Masters tournaments were held in 2020, when live poker was suspended owing to a coronavirus outbreak. Alexandros Kolonias won the Poker Masters Online in 2020, while Eelis Parsinen won the Poker Masters Online PLO Series in 2020.
Michael Addamo, an Australian poker prodigy, won the Poker Masters Purple Jacket and the Super High Roller Bowl VI for $3,402,000 in 2021.
Super High Roller Bowl follows Poker Masters immediately.
Regarding the Super High Roller Bowl, the next edition of the renowned tournament will take place the day after the conclusion of Poker Masters. Event #12: $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em concludes Poker Masters on Monday, October 3, followed by the $300,000 buy-in Super High Roller Bowl VII on Wednesday, October 5.
Super High Roller Bowl VII is a three-day event that will be webcast live on PokerGO for all three days.
|Wed 10/5||Super High Roller Bowl VII Day 1||$300,000|
|Thur 10/6||Super High Roller Bowl VII Day 2||$300,000|
|Fri 10/7||Super High Roller Bowl VII Day 3||$300,000|
All Poker Masters and Super High Roller Bowl VII events are eligible for PGT ranking points. The top 21 players on the PGT leaderboard will be able to participate in the season-ending PGT Championship for a chance to earn the winner-takes-all prize of $500,000.
