Time for Day 2 of the 2018 Poker Masters $100000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event – PokerNews.com

Welcome to the ARIA Resort & Casino, and the 2018 Poker Masters for Day 2 of Event #7: $100,000 No-Limit Hold’em Main Event.

Six events have been won and run and the second annual Poker Masters, and so far David Peters, Brandon Adams, Keith Lehr, Isaac Haxton, and Ali Imsirovic have all collected titles. For Imsirovic, he won back-to-back events winning the $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em and the $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em to pocket a combined $1.2 million in earnings along with rocketing to the top of the leaderboard rankings for the Poker Masters Purple Jacket.

Unlike the inaugural running of the Poker Masters where the Purple Jacket was decided using total earnings, the 2018 Poker Masters will use the High Roller of the Year scoring system to award the coveted Poker Masters Purple Jacket. Players are awarded points for their in-the-money finish, and currently there are only five players in contention to claim the Purple Jacket due to some outstanding performances so far this series. Here are the current standings heading into the Main Event:
