While online poker is entirely focused on its two flagship events: WSOP Online and WCOOP, the Classic Poker Masters Series in the United States has come to an end. As usual, the tournament takes place inside the Aria Casino, with the winner receiving a purple jacket in addition to the prize money – similar to popular golf tournaments.

The series traditionally brings together the best players. Daniel Negreanu, the infamous Chino Rome, Alex Foxen, Nick Petrangelo, Jonathan Jaffe, Justin Bonomo and other famous high rollers come to compete for the title.

There are 10 tournaments in total, with buy-ins ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. The point of the Poker Masters isn’t the prize money, it’s the purple jacket. This year’s top prize went to British legend Stephen Chidwick.

He had a close series, winning four events:

  • #6 $10,000 – No. 6 , with a bonus of $57,000.
  • #8 $25,000 – First place, $400,000.
  • #9 $25 ,000 – Third place, $148,000.
  • #10 $50,000 – Second place, $504,000.

The fight for the championship jacket goes on until the end – there are several contenders for this title. However, Chidwick beat everyone, and already in 3-max mode, secured a ranked victory.

The Englishman found himself 5-1 down behind Jonathan Jaffe in the heads-up match, which he quickly claimed victory. Expanding his chips, he was one step away from his second victory, but his offense was more clinical. Jonathan set it up for his opponent and Chidwick quickly followed suit.

The preflop and flop advantage turned into a loser on the river, when the dealer dealt a 3 and gave Jonathan the win. However, that didn’t stop Chidwick from becoming the series champion. He took home the Poker Masters Purple Jacket trophy for the first time.

With his latest victory, Stephen now ranks third on the all-time money list, knocking Negreanu off the top spot with $52,320,121.
