Poker MastersThe yearly battle between some of the world’s greatest high rollers is not too far away. Poker Masters gets underway on September 7th and will take place at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas’s ARIA Resort and Casino.

The Poker Masters is a tournament series that is geared toward high rollers who compete in No-Limit Hold ‘Em and Pot Limit Omaha with this year seeing the début of Short Deck Hold’Em.

Buy-ins range between $10,000 and $100,000 and the tournament will see millions of dollars change hands. The person who amasses the most points will be awarded the Purple Jacket.

Steffen Sontheimer stormed onto the poker scene last year taking home the Purple Jacket along with $2.7 in prize money after he made four final tables and won two events. That run contributed to the $7 million that he pocketed from live tournaments last year. Bryn Kenney ended up in second and walked away with $1.8 million while Fedor Holz’s third-place finish netted him $1 million.
