Who And What To Watch At The 2018 Poker Masters – US Poker (blog)

A tradition gradually becoming like no other in poker starts up on Sept. 7. Poker Masters returns to ARIA in Las Vegas, NV, and PokerGO will be streaming a full week of High Roller events with millions up for grabs.

Last year’s inaugural champion Steffen Sontheimer is not expected to be in attendance for this year’s run at the Purple Jacket. But even with the repeat winner storyline pushed to the back page, there are more than enough items to bring excitement into the preview headlines.

Four buy-in levels, two new games, and an entirely revamped scoring system make Poker Masters must-watch every night.

The game sweeping poker off its feet is a part of the Poker Masters process. The fourth event on the schedule is a $10,000 buy-in of the format expected to draw strong numbers. When cards are officially in the air on September 10, the era of Short Deck tournaments begins in the United States.

Pot Limit Omaha precedes Short Deck the day before for a $25,000 buy-in. Expect to see all players part of the Poker Masters process play Short Deck out of curiosity and fun. Nick Schulman and Cary Katz both gained top-three results in the format over the summer in South Korea during the Triton High Roller Series.

This tournament is a favorite to have the most entries of the Poker Master series.

Sontheimer does not plan to be in town but is already attempting to get a leg up on future Short Deck competition.

Shortdeck is fun, no solvers but your brain so far.
