The final event of the 2018 Poker Masters played down to a champion. David Peters won Event #7 $100,000 NL for a payday worth $1.15 million. That marked his second win at the Poker Masters, but he finished 10 points behind the leaderboard winner Ali Imsirovic, who won back-to-back events, advanced to three final tables and shipped the coveted Purple Jacket.

Purple looks good on Ali Imsirovic. After winning consecutive events earlier this week, Imsirovic put himself at the top of the leaderboard. Despite a heck of a run by David Peters, Imsirovic held off Peters, Brandon Adams, and Ike Haxton to win the super-cool and dank purple jacket. Inspired by the Masters golf tournament in August, Georgia which awards its champion with a green jacket, the Poker Masters sought to do something similar. At the end of the 7-event series, the biggest point earner would slide on the jacket... except it was purple because purple is Prince's favorite color.

The 2018 Poker Masters at the Aria Casino in Las Vegas concluded with its seventh and final event. The $100K Finale attracted 25 total runners with a prize pool worth $2.5 million. Only the top 4 places paid out.

The final six of the $100K included David Peters, Dan Smith, Koray Aldemir, Christoph Vogelsang, Bryn Kenney, and Stevie Chidwick. All the cheesecake was perched at the top of the pyramid, but at that juncture at least two players would be walking away with zilch.

Chidwick busted in sixth place, while Christoph Vogelsang bubbled in fifth place. Play was suspended with four to go and everyone in the money. David Peters bagged up the lead with 2.2M, followed by Dan Smith's 2M, while Aldemir (541K) and Kenney (227K) were the shorties.

On Day 3, Bryn Kenney hit the rail first. Fourth place paid out $250K for the New Yorker. Germany's Koray Aldemir was picked off in third place, which paid out $400K. That set up the finale between Dan and David. The Battle of the Ds. Alas, Dan Smith couldn't stop David Peters. It was his night to shine once again. Smith bowed out in second place and earned a $700K paycheck.

Peters banked $1.15 million for first place. Peters won the first event for $193K. Overall, Peters shipped $1,343,200 this series.

Peters and Ali Imsirovic both won two events, but Imsirovic final tabled three events, or one more than Peters. Peters had to settle on second place on the final leaderboard. He finished only 10 points behind Imsirovic.

Ali Imsirovic had one heck of a series. He's the 2018 Poker Master winner and is now the proud owner of a sleek purple jacket. Overall, Imsirovic won $1,288,600 this week. Not too shabby, eh?

Among those making multiple final tables: Dan Shak, Dominik Nitsche, Daniel Negreanu, Jon Depa, Dan Smith, Ben Yu, Koray Aldemir and David Peters all made 2 final tables.

The 3-timer club included Ali Imsirovic, Brandon Adams, Ike Haxton, Jake Schindler, Bryn Kenny, Cary Katz, and Jason Koon.
