Ali Imsirovic wins PokerGO Cup Event #2
Poker pro Ali Imsirovic has won over $11 000 000 in live tournaments throughout his poker career. The guy can boast of the Poker Masters and U.S. Poker Open trophies, and he definitely doesn't plan to stop there.
2021 has been another successful year for Almedin. A few hours ago, he managed to reach the $10 000 No-Limit Hold'em final table, and immediately became a chip leader. To note, it was the second tournament held as part of the 2021 PokerGO Cup (Aria Casino, Las Vegas). The event attracted 61 participants, including famous US professional Jason Koon.
In the finals, Ali Imsirovic eliminated four of his five opponents and eventually emerged victorious, winning $183 000 in prize money. Well, a PokerGO Cup trophy will make a nice addition to Imsirovic's growing list of poker achievements.
After winning the prestigious tournament, Ali Imsirovic shared his impression of the game, pointing to his hard work. The more he studies, the more confident he feels when playing. Before a big poker series starts, Almedin spends all of his time working on his game, therefore he feels very confident and plays his best.
The player was crushing his opponents left and right, and Matas Cimbolas was the first to fall into the hands of Imsirovic. Matas failed to resist Almedin, leaving the event in sixth place. The next knocked out by Ali was Frank Funaro. He entered the final table being short-stacked and could hold out no longer than 5th place ($48 000).
Then, Dylan Linde eliminated Mo Rahim from the tournament: fourth place brought Mo $61 000. Soon after, Linde went all-in, holding pocket queens, against Imsirovic, who had pocket kings, and "successfully" busted in third place ($65 000).
In heads-up, Imsirovic was opposed by the strong poker pro Jason Koon. Ali had a slightly more than 3-to-1 stack advantage, and it only took him one hand to finish the tournament. With 50 000/100 000 blinds and a 100 000 ante, Koon limped from the button with A-9. Imsirovic moved all-in from the big blind holding K-2, and Jason called for his 1.85 million stack. One of the flop cards was 2, which eventually secured Almedin’s victory.
