Two winners will take home $250,000 as they score big victories at the ongoing tournament series
For the first time in the professional poker scene, there is a Poker Masters Online event, bringing tons of action to the poker community. The online scene is filled with poker pro players who are following stay-at-home orders across the world, also because there aren’t any live poker events taking place due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. This past Sunday was the opening day that came with three events, and Monday was followed by two more tournaments. The second day was full of action in which Mike Watson and Andras Nemeth were the big winners who took home nearly $250,000 each.
Event #4 was the $10,300 NL 8-Max tournament. It came with a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool that soared up to $1.02 million, and the last man standing was Watson, who took home the first-place prize of $249,900 when he defeated Sam Greenwood in heads-up play. Greenwood won $178,500 for second place, and third place paid $127,500 to Jorryt Van Hoof.
Monday was a good day for Nemeth. On the previous day, he ended up right behind Pablo Brito Silva in the Irish Poker Open Main Event. But, this time, he ended up winning event #5, a $10,300 NL 6-Max tournament that registered 84 entries. This event had a $500,000 guarantee, but it finally went to $830,000 for the final prize pool. Nemeth’s prize was $259,628.98, which he secured after ending up in a heads-up match against Orpen Kisacikoglu and taking him down. Kisacikoglu took the $161,850 prize for second place and also ended fourth in event #4, earning $89,250.
That was not the only event Nemeth played on Monday. He finished 14th in Event #4 of the Poker Masters Online series, for which he received $20,400.
