Il perfait online et avait offert quelques flashs de talent lors de l'EPT Barcelona, l'Américain Ali Imsirovic a franchi un cap en remportant le 5e tournoi du Poker Masters à Las Vegas.

Le jeune homme a dominé un tournoi à 25 000$ l'entrée et surtout une finale où l'on retrouvait Jake Schindler, Jason Koon, Brian Rast et Daniel Negreanu. Almedin "Ali" Imsirovic a conclu la finale en trois heures avant de rapidement gagner son head's up contre Ben Yu.

Installé à Vancouver, le natif de Washington signe son plus gros gain en carrière et possède désormais plus de 1,6 million de dollars cumulés en live après un premier résultat remontant uniquement à novembre 2015. Triple vainqueur WSOP et lui aussi plutôt novice sur la scène high-roller, Ben Yu encaisse 330 000$.

Imsirovic paraît complètement lancé, la nuit dernière il s'est hissé en finale de l'Event #6 à 50.000$ l'entrée. Il a trois le stack de son plus proche poursuivant, Justin Bonomo, alors qu'ils ne sont plus que 6 sur les 47 engagés (799 000$ au vainqueur, le tournoi est à suivre en direct ici dans la nuit de jeudi à vendredi)

Avec 7 blindes à l'entame de l'ultime explication, Daniel Negreanu a vite rendu les armes. Le futur vainqueur a ensuite logiquement sorti Jason Koon avec une main dominatrice préflop ({a-}{k-} contre {a-}{10-}).

Le plan à 4 s'est étalé sur presque deux heures. Il a été défavorable au patron du début de la finale,Jake Schindler. Après avoir résisté à un désert de cartes, Schindler a tout mis de petite blinde pour s'empaler sur Imsirovic en grosse blinde.

Chipleader durant la TF, Brian Rast s'est fait attraper par le futur vainqueur qui avait juste payer une relance avec {j-}{j-} au bouton. Rast a tout mis avec {a-}{5-} de grosse blinde pour terminer sur le podium. Confortablement en tête pour le dernier duel, Ali va mettre son adversaire KO en trois mains sur un flip.
