A huge month of poker action is expected on PokerGO in March with the continuation of Season 10 of High Stakes Poker. The Global Poker Awards return to kick off the month, while the U.S. Poker Open returns to give subscribers their high-stakes tournament fix.
High Stakes Poker
Season 10 of High Stakes Poker continues with Nick Schulman and A.J. Benza steering the ship that has been full of entertaining poker action.

Following the final two episodes from those players, a new line-up will take a seat for continued $200/$400 No-Limit Hold’em action. Tilly, Stanley Tang, and Jean-Robert Bellande return, while Eric Persson, Stanley Choi, Andrew Robl, and Daniel Negreanu make their Season 10 debuts.

U.S. Poker Open
The fourth major series of the 2023 PGT season is the U.S. Poker Open that will run from inside the PokerGO Studio from March 23 to April 4.
The 10-event schedule includes a mix of No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha tournaments with the player that earns the most PGT points being crowned the USPO champion and winning the $50,000 championship bonus.
The first U.S. Poker Open occurred in 2018 with Stephen Chidwick being crowned the champion after winning two events and making five final tables. David Peters would claim champion honors in back-to-back years as Sean Winter finished runner-up both times. Fortunately for Winter, he would be crowned champion in 2022 with two wins and $1,196,000 in winnings.
Watch U.S. Poker Open final tables from March 24 to April, at 4 p.m. ET.
What Did You Miss in February?
High Stakes Poker was the only planned show for February on PokerGO, but an audible was called with No Gamble, No Future doing three days of Cash of the Titans live streaming.
Eric Persson, Andrew Robl, Rob Yong, Matthew Gonzales, Markus Gonsalves, and Patrik Antonius could all buy-in for up to $1,000,000. The kicker was 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 with two pair.
