Imsirovic takes down PokerGO Cup Event #2 for $183,000
PokerGO Cup Event #2: $10,000 No-Limit Hold’em ended with a scene that’s become a frequent feature on this year’s PokerGO Tour. Ali Imsirovic took center stage in the winner’s photo, coming away with the victory in the tournament for a $183,000 payday.
With the win, Imsirovic extended his lead against the field as the No. 1 player on the 2021 PokerGO Tour Leaderboard standings. PokerGO Cup Event #2 marked Imsirovic’s seventh win in the PokerGO Tour this year.
That seventh win marks an extraordinary statistic from Imsirovic’s elite-level poker resume. Imsirovic’s seven wins and 18 cashes are both tops on the PokerGO Tour in 2021.
Imsirovic pushed his career tournament earnings to $11,624,200 with the win. He’s No. 1 on both the Hendon Mob and PokerGO Tour 2021 money lists.
