Watch Or Play, You’re Not Going To Want To Miss The 2018 Poker Masters!


Whether you’re a player competing at the highest level or a fan that loves to watch those players compete, the 2018 Poker Masters at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas has something for everyone!

Play The Poker Masters!

After its highly successful inaugural edition in 2017, dominated by a breakout performance by Steffen Sontheimer, the Poker Masters returns to ARIA Resort & Casino featuring seven events ranging from $10,000 up to $100,000. Win the prestigious and unique Purple Jacket by gathering the most points across the seven Poker Masters events played out in three different formats. This year, no-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha and short deck are on the menu of the Poker Masters.

All Poker Masters events are open to all comers, and all events with the exception of the main event will run for two days. You’ll never have to miss an event, as late registration remains open for all players that play on the final table of a given event. Registration fees are waived for those players as well as those that register before play starts.

The events kick off daily at 2 p.m. local time, with the final table of each event kicking off at 1 p.m. the following day. All Poker Masters events will be six handed and players will be on a 30-second shot clock, on top of which you’ll receive three 60-second time extensions per day.
