Imsirovic takes down Poker Master's $50K event

After a successful run at the Poker Master's $25,000 tournament to win the title and $462,000, Ali Imsirovic set his sights on the next event.  He pulled off another victory, taking down the $50,000 event and adding $799,000 to his series' winnings.  The Washington State native, who has only been on the poker scene for about three years, has now racked up a total of over $2.4 million in live action, according to The Hendon Mob.

The victory was the largest in Imsirovic's career.  He has been on an incredible run during the Poker Masters, taking home a total of over $1.2 million.  With his latest win, he added 300 points to his score in the race for the Purple Jacket, and now has 660 points total.  He has overtaken the lead held by Brandon Adams, who now sits in second with 510 points. 

Imsirovic got off to a good start in final table action, sending Justin Bonomo to the rail in sixth place.  Shortly after, he took out Sam Soverel when his pocket Queens were too much for the short-stacked Soverel's A-K combo. 

Jack Schindler went down next, the third final table player to fall to Imsirovic.  Imsirovic had moved all in with 7-5 off-suit, which Schindler called with pocket fours.  A five on the flop squeezed out Schindler and he exited in fourth place. 

Seth Davies would also fall to Imsirovic.  His pocket tens weren't able to hold up against a flopped two pair as the eventual winner continued to show that Lady Luck was definitely on his shoulder throughout the tournament. 

Now down to two players, Imsirovic had to battle it out in tough heads-up action against Koray Aldemir.  They exchanged positions as chip leader several times but finally, after 100 hands, Aldemir fell when his 9-8 combo met a K-Q combo held by his opponent.  A Queen on the turn gave Imsirovic the victory and Aldemir, $517,000.
