Poker Central has released the full schedule of the 2019 Poker Masters, which is set to take place at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 4-14.
To make things more exciting, the team at Poker Central has partnered with globally recognised automobile brand Jeep to launch a new leaderboard, awarding extra prizes to the top finishers.
The 2019 Poker Masters features a total of ten events, up from seven in 2018.
There are two additional mixed events on the schedule – the $10,000 6-Game and the $10,000 Big Bet, both of which will be played in no-limit Hold’em, 2-7 single draw and pot-limit Omaha formats. Short deck and PLO events are also back, with the latter coming in at a more accessible entry fee of $10,000, compared with $25,000 in 2018.
The $100,000 Main Event will be a No-Limit Hold’em battle and will take place on November 13.
The tournament kicks off with a $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em event on November 4, which will then be followed by a $10,000 PLO and a $10,000 Short Deck event on November 5 and 6 respectively. The 8-Game and Big Bet mixed events will take place on November 7 and 8, with three $25,000 NLH events scheduled for November 9-11. High-rollers may also take part in a higher buy-in NLH event on November 12, which comes with a $50,000 entry price.
Each of the events on the 10-day schedule will last two days. The final table is reached on Day 1, and PokerGO will stream the final battle on Day 2. Poker Central will waive the rake for players who register on time. Participants can reenter twice for each event, except for the Main Event which only allows single re-entry.
Partnership With Jeep
The player who comes out at the top of the Jeep branded leaderboard will take home an additional $100,000 in bonus prize money, and will get to wear the highly-coveted Poker Masters Purple Jacket.
In 2018, it was Washington poker pro Ali Imsirovic who walked away with the purple jacket, after taking down back to back events during the series. Germany’s Steffen Sontheimer was the player who captured the first title back in 2017.
As part of Poker Central’s new partnership with Jeep, the player who tops the leaderboard will also get the chance to enter into all ARIA High roller events rake-free next year. Players occupying the top 5 seats on the leaderboard can also choose to skip the lottery in exchange for seats into the Super High Roller Bowl in Las Vegas.
