As soon as the Super High Roller Bowl (SHRB) at the Aria wrapped up, the casino and Poker Central were already working on their next big event. It has now announced the second installment of the Poker Master series, scheduled for September 6 through 13, with a break in play on September 9.
This year’s seven-game series will see high-stakes games with a $10,000 buy-in tournament, a $50,000 buy-in tournament and five $25,000 buy-in tournament. While the event last year only saw No Limit Hold’em action, this year a Pot-Limit Omaha tournament has been added to the lineup.
All tournaments will allow for two re-entries, except for the $50,000 event – only one re-buy is allowed. The 30-second shot clock will be in place for all events and players will have the use of five 30-second time banks each day. If registration is completed by 2 PM the first day of the event, there will be no tournament fees.
Sam Simmons, VP of Content for Poker Central, said, “We were pleased with the turnout for last year’s inaugural Poker Masters series and look forward to building upon the legacy of one of poker’s leading majors. As we add on even more high stakes events, fans can expect a week’s worth of world-class poker action featuring some of the game’s best.”
The highest earnings winner of the series will be crowned the Poker Masters Champion, earning his or her Purple Jacket. Additionally, the results from the events will earn the players points in the High Roller of the Year race.
