PokerGO has announced that this year’s PokerGO Tour will end with the PGT Championship. The event will be held in the PokerGO studio at the Aria where the top 21 players on the PGT Player of the Year Leaderboard will be invited to play. PokerGO are putting up a $500,000 dollar first prize as well as the title PGT Champion.
This is a winner-take-all event, so second place is just first of the losers and will take home $0 for their troubles.
“The PGT is the battleground for the most elite poker players in the world,” Mori Eskandani, President of
PokerGO, said. “And it is only right that we honor the best of the best in extraordinary fashion. We are proud to award the 2022 PGT season champion with a $500,000 prize as we continue to celebrate the most talented players our game has to offer.”
The winner will also be crowned the PGT Champion. The PGT Champion title is distinct from the PGT Player of the Year title which carries its own cash prize and is based purely on the leaderboard points.
The event will start with three tables of seven players each. The event will then switch to six-max for the final table.
The PGT Championship final table will be broadcast live, as usual, on PokerGO with a possible free broadcast on Youtube.
The date for this broadcast has not yet been set.
