A new year is upon us and the action picks up hot and heavy on PokerGO to welcome 2024.

The PGT season concludes with PGT Last Chance and the PGT Championship $1,000,000 freeroll before the next season begins with PGT Kickoff and the PokerGO Cup. These four events will all run throughout January and be livestreamed on PokerGO.

PokerGO Preview January

PGT Last Chance

The inaugural PGT Last Chance series will give players their last opportunity to earn their place in the PGT Championship $1,000,000 Freeroll. The Top 40 players on the PGT leaderboard following the conclusion of PGT Last Chance will qualify for the PGT Championship. This means that for players on the fringe of the Top 40, PGT Last Chance will literally be their last chance to qualify.

With every 10 PGT points converting to 1 big blind in the PGT Championship, players that have locked up their spot also having the chance to increase their starting stack in the PGT Championship.

As a bonus for any player who doesn’t finish in the Top 40 on the PGT leaderboard, the two highest-ranked players on the PGT Last Chance leaderboard that are not in the Top 40 will win the final two Dream Seats. These Dream Seats will give the winner direct-entry into the PGT Championship $1,000,000 Freeroll.

Watch PGT Last Chance final tables from January 2-7.

PGT Championship

The 2023 PGT season will conclude with the PGT Championship that begins on January 9 with the Top 40 players on the PGT leaderboard and select Dream Seat winners. The prize pool for the PGT Championship will be a staggering $1,000,000 freeroll that will award $500,000 to the winner and pay out the final six spots.

The best of the best from the 2023 PGT season will battle it out to see who will follow in the footsteps of Jason Koon as the PGT Championship winner. Some of the players that have qualified for the 2023 PGT Championship include 2023 WSOP Main Event winner Daniel Weinman, Super High Roller Bowl VIII champion Isaac Haxton, 10-time WSOP bracelet winner Erik Seidel, defending PokerGO Cup champion Cary Katz, and 17-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth.

Some of the players on the fringe of qualifying for the PGT Championship include defending champion Koon, alongside 2021 PokerGO Cup champion Daniel Negreanu, 2021 WSOP Player of the Year Josh Arieh, and PGT Mixed Games II winner Chino Rheem.
