Artur Martirosian is on his way to becoming the first-ever Poker Masters Online Champion and take the coveted Purple Jacket to Russia along with the $50,000 cash prize. On the penultimate night of action, Martirosian did not record a cash giving his opponents a chance to make up ground. Ali Imsirovic and Timothy Adams benefitted from this the most and are one big result away from claiming the title tonight!
Here is the Top 20 of the Poker Masters Online Championship. Watch the Saturday night final table action in the player below as Jeff Platt and Brent Hanks were joined by Maria Ho. Tune in tonight at 9pm ET for the conclusion of Poker Masters Online!

The full Poker Masters Online Championship standings can be found here.
The first event of the night was dominated by Jorryt van Hoof for quite some time after busting Ben Heath in seventh place when his ace-king spiked a king against the Brit’s tens on the river. Van Hoof, however, couldn’t hold onto his chip lead with Ali Imsirovic taken this event down. The entire Top 4 from this event sits in the Top 13 of the Championship standings and can technically still win it all tonight!
|Event #26 $25,000 No Limit Hold’em|
|4||Jorryt van Hoof||$114,750||69|
The Saturday night $10k 6-max seemed to be headed to a massive shift on the standings with Timothy Adams holding the chip lead at the final table. A win would’ve put Adams in the lead but he fell short in fifth place, missing out on valuable points. The final four had played no role in the race for the Purple Jacket but Mustapha Kanit winning brought his total to 592 points which give him a chance. Kanit now sits 12th and a win on Sunday could still give him the overall win!
|Event #27 $10,000 NLHE 6-max|
|7||Juan Pardo Dominguez||$24,700||25|
Sunday’s events get underway at 2pm ET with a $50,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament followed by a $10,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament at 4pm ET to close things out.
