The 2018 Poker Masters saw Keith Lehr take down the $25,000 PLO Event – the only PLO event scheduled in the series. The Aria Resort and Casino saw 37 players register for the event, with Lehr finally taking it down for a massive $333,000 and 300 points towards the Purple Jacket race.

Lehr is a well-known PLO player, both in cash games and tournaments, and has earlier won a bracelet at a WSOP Omaha event.  He boasts over $3 million in live earnings, and is currently tied for second place in the Purple Jacket race.

Poker pro Brandon Adams found himself at his third final table in three events for this series so far, starting off second in chips. This meant that no matter what, Adams would be adding to his lead in the Purple Jacket race, distancing himself from his competition. Brandon eventually finished the event in fifth place. Here’s a look at the Final Table Payouts:
