PokerGO will hold a series of PLO events in March
Since the beginning of the year, PokerGO has already held two successful series, one consisting entirely of mixed games. This tournament has exceeded all the organizers’ expectations, and now PokerGO will hold a series of PLO events in March. A small championship consisting of expensive events will be held at the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort&Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The schedule of nine events was compiled based on the recommendations of players who expressed a need for a pot-limit Omaha series. The scheduled events include many Omaha options and start with two tournaments with 5,000 USD buy-ins. At the same time, in one of them, players will have the opportunity to win a knockout award, which is 2,000 USD.
Next comes the growth of buy-ins, and other varieties of Omaha come into play. There will be 4 events with 10,000 USD buy-ins, including the Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo tournament and a mixed event: Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo, Pot Limit Omaha, and Big O. Next in the schedule is an event for 15,000 USD, in which bounties of 5,000 USD will be played.
Next on the schedule is the most expensive tournament, worth 25,000 USD. The starting stacks here will be enlarged, and the level will last 60 minutes. The final event will be a one-day PLO tournament with a 2,200 USD buy-in.
All tournaments will be included in the PokerGO Tour 2023 rating. Players will receive points depending on how much they win. As usual, the series’ best player will be determined, who will receive a 25,000 USD bonus. For those who do not want to spend a decent amount on entry, two satellites will be held at Aria on March 9-10.
On Thursday, March 9, a satellite worth 560 USD will be held, and the next day a qualifying tournament will take place, for which you will have to pay 1,100 USD already. The players who successfully performed in the first satellite will have the opportunity to play in the event for 5,000 USD, and the best players of the second satellite will get a place in the event for 10,000 USD. Full schedule:
- March 11 — $5,000 PLO
- March 12 — $5,000 PLO ($2,000 bounties)

It is already known that Daniel Negreanu, who performed well in the previous mixed games championship, will compete for the first cup of the PGT PLO series. Josh Arieh will try to strengthen his reputation as one of the best PLO players. Arieh won three of the four bracelets in this discipline. Surely local players will want to visit an exciting tournament: Ben Lamb, Dylan Weisman, Sam Soverel, and Sean Winter.
