2024 PokerGO Cup Preview

The 2024 PokerGO Cup — the first of the PGT‘s three calendar “majors” — is set to begin this Thursday, January 25th, at the PokerGO Studio! Eight No Limit Texas Hold’em live poker tournaments are scheduled to take place, with each event lasting two days. Once all action has concluded on February 3rd, the player who accumulates the most PokerGO Tour (PGT) points will be awarded the 2024 championship and receive a $25,000 added cash bonus.

Last year, PokerGO founder Cary Katz cashed in more than half of the PokerGO Cup events, earning $655,800 in prizes. Katz is expected to return next week to defend his title, and will be matching wits with some of the most highly skilled poker players in the world – such as Isaac Haxton and Alex Foxen, Daniel Negreanu, and more.

Other previous PokerGO Cup winners include Jeremy Ausmus (2022) and Daniel Negreanu (2021).

2024 PokerGO Cup Schedule

As mentioned above, all eight events will be played in the No Limit Texas Hold’em format. However, the two-day events will gradually increase in buy-in levels leading up to the $25,000 Main Event.

The starting chip stack for all seven preliminary events will be 125,000 and the Main Event will provide 150,000 chips to all entrants. Blind Levels will start at 500/1000 with a 1000 Big Blind ante. Blinds will increase every 30 minutes for Event #1, every 40 minutes for Events #2-7, and every 45 minutes for Event #8 (the Main Event).
