The 2019 Poker Masters was a match between three leading horses, right until the last minute, when the only horse, Sam Soverel, galloped to victory beating Kahle Burns and Chance Kornuth to win Event #10.
In some sense, Sam Soverel has managed to redefine what high roller success is all about this year. He won not only event#10 but also the British Poker Open challenge. He was dominant and had a demeanour that was almost robotically impossible to discern. He won more than $1.3 million. However, it was not really about the money when he caught up with and even beat his rivals.
It would come out as a massive compliment to states that although Chance Kornuth appeared to take an early lead, with Burns Roaring into contention, Sam Soverel was not actually written off for the win, and yet, when he beat his competitors, he was not going to be caught again.
In the closing event, requiring a $50000 entry ticket, Sam Soverel wore the disposition of a person who is in charge, even when he was not in the lead. With just six players to go, and five expected to cash, the unlucky person in this whole game was Ali Imsirovic. He had a top kicker and pair on the dud but was not able to hold his place against the likes of Stephen Chadwick.
With the five eyeing the cash, Seth Davies was driven out of the game when his pocket queens encountered Soverel’s Pocket kings. Chadwick was busted out in fourth place and went out of the game when he came across Chris Hunichen’s pocket kings.
Elio Fox Suffered the misfortune of carrying a full house to someone with a better house – his nines-sevens lost to Soverel’s nine-eights – and a heads clash was launched. Only one man used his pocket kings to make himself a king.
Sam Soverel dashed into the game with a 4 to 1 lead and did not take too much time finishing the game. His all-in move with queens and ten saw Hunichen go for the call with his pocket deuces. This was a race, and like on the Poker Masters Leader board, Sam Soverel proved to be the master. He came from miles behind to lead the pack.
