Brandon Adams Defeats Doug Polk to Win Poker Masters Event #4 for $819,000

The Poker Masters Event #4: $50,000 NLHE at the ARIA Resort and Casino began with 39 entries, but in the end, it was old-school player Brandon Adams who emerged victorious to capture an $819,000 first-place prize.

Along with Doug Polk, Adams was the only player to enter the final table with a seven-figure stack. Fittingly, the title came down to those two. Polk began the heads-up match with a chip lead, but that didn’t matter as Adams battled back to win the title and notch the biggest cash of his career.

Prior to the win, Adams had $1,900,596 in tournament earnings dating back to 2005. His previous best cash was $447,363 for finishing runner-up to James Chen in January’s Aussie Millions $25,000 Challenge.

It’s been a career year for Adams, who also finished third in August’s Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open High Roller for $351,000. Adams is an old-school player, but it appears he’s just now hitting his stride and showing he’s fit for the modern-day game.

Day 2 began with seven players remaining, but with only six slated to get paid, one would leave empty handed as bubble boy. That player was Zach Clark, the nephew of the late Poker Hall of Famer Chip Reese, who fell when he shoved his short stack with king-six and failed to get there against the ace-three of Polk.

Mere minutes later, Jake Schindler flopped aces and sevens only to run into David Peters’ set of aces. The chips went in and that was all she wrote for Schindler, who exited in sixth place for $97,500.

The next player to go was the breakout star of the Poker Masters, Steffen Sontheimer, who was at his third final table. Sontheimer finished fourth in Event #1 for $204,000 and then won Event #2 for $900,000. In Event #3, he busted in eighth place, which was the money bubble.

After his ace-five failed to overcome the pocket fives of Adams, he busted Event #4 in fifth place for $117,000, which brought his Poker Masters winnings up to $1,221,000. That puts him in the lead, but he faces some stiff competition from the likes of Event #3 champ Bryn Kenney, who has amassed $1.085 million in earnings, and Event #1 winner Nick Schulman, who currently sits in third with $918,000 in winnings. Likewise, Adams is now in fourth place thanks to his $819,000 win.
Don’t forget, the player with the best results (highest total earnings) throughout all five Poker Masters tournaments (four $50,000 buy-in tournaments capped by a $100,000 freeze out finale) will win The Poker Masters Purple Jacket™.

Justin Bonomo was the next to go after three-betting all in with ace-three suited and failing to crack the pocket sevens of Adams. Bonomo earned $175,000 for finishing in fourth place. A little while later, a wild three-way all-in hand went down that resulted in the elimination of David Peters in third place for $273,000.

Peters got his stack in with pocket eights but was up against the aces and Big Slick of Polk and Adams respectively. Polk was also at risk, but his aces held up to allow him to double through Adams and send Peters to the rail.

It didn’t take long for Adams to pull ahead in heads-up play, and in what would be the final hand of the tournament, both players held two diamonds in their hand and flopped straight flush draws. The chips went in, and Adams’ hand was best. A diamond on the turn gave both players a flush, and Adams claimed the title with the better one.

Polk had to settle for second place and a $468,000 consolation prize. With $612,000 in Poker Masters earnings, Polk rounds out the top five earners headed into the final tournament of the series.

The $100,000 freeze-out finale kicks off tomorrow at 2:00 p.m. PST. Be sure to join us then as we bring you all the updates straight from the tournament floor.

Brandon Adams raised to 90,000 on the button with {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} and Doug Polk three-bet to 260,000 out of the small blind with {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}. David Peters woke up in the big blind with {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} and shipped all-in for 545,000. The action was back on Adams who used a time extension and then pushed all-in himself.

Polk called, and the turn landed the {6-Hearts} as Polk quickly checked his trips. Adams checked behind, and the river landed the {K-Hearts} as both players checked again.

Brandon Adams raised to 75,000 from under the gun with {7-Spades}{7-Clubs} and Justin Bonomo ripped all of his 770,000 chips into the middle with {a-Spades}{3-Spades}. Adams made the call and the cards were on their backs.

Bonomo was the player at risk and the flop came {j-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. Adams was still in the lead and the {3-Hearts} landed on the turn. The {4-Spades} on the river paired the board and Bonomo was eliminated in 4th place.

With that knockout, Adams took over the chip lead with over two million chips.

David Peters raised to 36,000 holding the {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} in the hijack and Jake Schindler three-bet to 90,000 from the cutoff with the {a-Hearts}{7-Clubs}.

Action folded back to Peters and he just called before the flop came down {a-Spades}{7-Spades}{4-Spades}. Peters checked top set and Schindler, who flopped top two pair, moved all in for 334,000.

Peters snap-called and suddenly Schindler was looking for either running sevens to win or spades to chop. The {8-Clubs} turn took away any chance of that happening, and Schindler was officially eliminated in sixth place for $97,500 after the {10-Hearts} was run out on the river.

Zach Clark Eliminated as Bubble Boy in 7th Place

Action folded to a short-stacked Zach Clark on the button and he moved all in for his last 79,000. Doug Polk was in the small blind and three-bet to push David Peters out of the big.

Clark: {k-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}
Polk: {a-Spades}{3-Hearts}

The {2-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{k-Clubs} flop paired both players, but Polk's aces kept him in the lead. Neither the {7-Clubs} turn nor {7-Spades} river helped Clark, and he left empty handed in seventh place while the final six players are now guaranteed $97,500 in prize money.
