Ali Imsirovic is making it a habit of coming out on top in some of the most lucrative events that are being staged at present. For the 15th time in a High Roller event over the past year, the poker star managed to outlast a talented field and come out on top with a huge victory.
It has been a stunning 12 months or so for the star, as he was also named the Global Poker Index Player of the Year for 2021 before the turn of the year. There is no doubt that at present, there is no better player in the world of poker when it comes to the high stakes events than Imsirovic.
Another High Roller Title For Poker Star
It was a first outing in a High Roller event this calendar year for Imsirovic, and he made no mistake in carrying on where he left off in the previous calendar year. It was certainly a warning shot to the rest of the players in High Roller competition that he plans to continue building on the momentum that he was putting together in 2021. The past weekend’s event was staged at the Venetian in Las Vegas, as Imsirovic claimed the $25,000 buy in no-limit hold’em event. The event was part of the PokerGo Tour, and he needed to see off a talented field of 20 other players to claim victory in the event.
However, he is making a habit of winning these kinds of events, as the success over the weekend was the 15th time in the past 12 months that he has won a High Roller event. That tally is nine more than the next best player in the events. Imsirovic picked up returns of $270,000 for his excellent performance, and once again has furthered the claims that many believe he is the best High Stakes player on the planet at present. He will be hoping it sets the tone for another memorable year in 2022, as he targets further success over the coming months.
Only Three Make Up Final Table
It was a tense finish to the competition over the weekend, as only three stars made up the final table of the competition. The Imsirovic success always looked inevitable as we closed in on the final stages of the event, as the star has been thriving under pressure for so long now. Masashi Oya was the nearest rival to the prolific poker player on the final table, but Oya eventually needed to settle for second spot on the leaderboard. That performance was still enough to see him claim returns from the event of $150,000. The only other player to make the final table was Steven Grady, who finished with returns of $80,000.
The PokerGo Tour action continues over the coming days, as the action moves to the Aria Resort and Casino from Wednesday, with that event running until January 20th. That event is called the Stairway to Millions, and we will keep you posted here at MoneyPokerSites.
