The final month of 2023 is here, and PokerGO will be squarely focused on the newest season of No Gamble, No Future.

PokerGO takes a step back on content for December, but when the ball drops and 2024 is upon us, PokerGO will be kicking it up with livestreams of PGT Last Chance, PokerGO Cup, and the PGT Championship $1,000,000 Freeroll to accompany No Gamble, No Future episodes.

PokerGO Preview December

No Gamble, No Future

Season 4 of No Gamble, No Future is here with the opening lineup featuring Antonio Esfandiari, Andrew Sasson, Brandon Steven, Alex Dombroff, John Morgan, and Jennifer Tilly playing $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em.

After three episodes with those players, a new lineup takes center stage as Hoodie Allen, Brettski, Justin Young, Mitchell Bank, BensBenz, Bijan Shapouri, and Jimmy D’Ambrosio play $25/$50 No-Limit Hold’em.

The month will end with the first of three episodes of a lineup that includes Nik Airball, Eli Elezra, Mark Ianelli, Jennifer Tilly, Eric Persson, and Phil Hellmuth playing $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em.

Watch Season 3 episodes of No Gamble, No Future every Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET.

What Did You Miss in November?

PokerGO’s month of November was dominated by the season conclusions of High Stakes Poker and No Gamble, No Future.

The final lineup of Season 11 of High Stakes Poker would see the debut of Nik Airball who joined Jean-Robert Bellande, Jennifer Tilly, Rob Yong, Doug Polk, Matt Berkey, Lynne Ji, and Eric Persson in a $200/$400 No-Limit Hold’em cash game.

Season 3 of No Gamble, No Future concluded with a $100/$200 No-Limit Hold’em cash game that featured Eric Hicks, Kevin Martin, Matt Berkey, Matt Steinberg, Lynne Ji, Eli Elezra, Daniel Negreanu, and Phil Hellmuth. Two of poker’s biggest names clashed, with Negreanu and Hellmuth going to war numerous times, and the season couldn’t end without a typical Hellmuth blow-up!

PokerGO Highlights from 2023

The year began with the PokerGO Cup which was won by Cary Katz who cashed five times and pipped Anthony Hu by just six PGT points to be crowned the PokerGO Cup champion.

January also saw the launch of Season 10 of High Stakes Poker which was met with the sad news that Gabe Kaplan was retiring as the High Stakes Poker commentator. Kaplan served as one of the High Stakes Poker commentators for nine seasons but will switch his microphone off at the age of 77 and pass the torch to Nick Schulman who will sit alongside A.J. Benza.

No Gamble, No Future livestreamed “Cash of the Titans” that featured Eric Persson, Andrew Robl, Rob Yong, Matthew Gonzales, Markus Gonsalves, and Patrik Antonius. Each player could buy-in for up to $1,000,000 with the kicker being that each player put $100,000 on the side, with the biggest winner over three sessions winning the $600,000.

The final day of play would see blinds begin at $1,000/$2,000 and it would also feature the largest pot ever broadcast on a U.S. poker live stream when Antonius won $1,978,000 against Persson.

The 4th Annual Global Poker Awards awarded 27 trophies to the poker industry, while the 2023 U.S. Poker Open would be highlighted by Phil Hellmuth winning his first PGT title at the PokerGO Studio.

High Stakes Duel 4 would see Mike Matusow defeat Shaun Deeb on the Undercard, while Daniel Negreanu defeated Eric Persson, and then Doug Polk, to be crowned the champion.

The summer was dominated by the World Series of Poker, and PokerGO streamed 47 days of WSOP action beginning on June 1, 2023. The highlight of PokerGO’s streaming schedule was the WSOP Main Event, but PokerGO introduced the Horseshoe table that streamed early action and final tables on YouTube.

Following the World Series of Poker, PGT events dominated the streaming schedule with the Poker Masters and Super High Roller Bowl VIII, along with debut of the PokerGO Triangle Room with livestreams of the PGT PLO Series. Following the demand of players, the Super High Roller Bowl: $100,000 Pot-Limit Omaha was launched, and Jared Bleznick topped the 38-entrant field to win $1,292,000 in prize money and the Super High Roller Bowl ring.
