Ali Imsirovic won his 14th title of the year, defeating a field of 102 entries to take down the 2021 Rock’N’Roll Poker Open $25,500 buy-in no-limit hold’em high roller event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida.The 26-year-old earned $695,355 for the win.
Prior to Imsirovic’s incredible run this year, the record for the most titles was held by Justin Bonomo, who came out on top in ten events back in 2018. Imsirovic broke the record back on Sept. 26 when he was victorious in a $50,000 buy-in high roller at ARIA for his 11th title of 2021.
With this latest victory, Imsirovic has not only extended his record of titles won in a year, but also put himself on track to break the record for POY-qualified final tables made in a year as well. He now sits with 30, just one short of the record 31 set by 2018 POY award winner Jake Schindler. If he were able to maintain his pace so far this year, he would set the record with 32.
Ali extends lead over Michael Addamo
The victory also saw Imsirovic extend his lead in the inaugural PokerGO Tour points race. The 417 points he scored for the win helped extend his lead over second-ranked Michael Addamo on that leaderboard.
Imsirovic has cashed for $5,909,155 across his 30 final-table finishes this year. This latest win was his largest score of the year so far, and the third-largest of his career.
