Poker Masters 2019 is in full swing, taking place from November 4th until the 14th at the PokerGO Studio, just outside the ARIA Casino in Las Vegas. Event #1 has already finished up with 97 players registering to compete. The field would be reduced to eight for the final table and eventually, it would be Isaac Baron and Chance Kornuth duking it out for the first-place win. In the end, Baron would earn the title, securing just over $220,000 in the process.
Once the field was narrowed down to the final table, only eight players remained. PokerGO streamed the final table and fans quickly saw eliminations left and right as the shorter stacks began to double up in chips.
The first to be eliminated was Thai Ha, who was followed by Dan Shak and Scott Blumstein. Sam Soverel would find himself eliminated next. After putting his pocket 8s up against Baron’s pocket aces. Jeremy Ausmus was out in 4th.
Baron would continue the trend and eliminate Ralph Wong in third place to start heads up with Kornuth in the poker tournament.
According to PokerNews…
The heads-up round would only last for one hand due to the massive size of Baron’s chip stack. He moved all-in with five-three of clubs and Kornuth called, holding ace-nine. Barn found a three to win the hand and eliminated Kornuth in 2nd place, claiming the Poker Masters event victory.
The Poker Masters continues outside the Aria with more events underway.
