U.S. Poker Open is coming back! PokerGO studio, which is a part of the ARIA Resort and Casino, will be the host of the second annual tournament which will run February 13-23, 2019, according to a Poker Central announcement.
There are currently four tournaments that are marked as a part of the second leg in the “High Roller Triple Crown,” and they are the Aria High Roller Series, the Poker Master series, the Super High Roller Bown, and US Poker Open. The whole tournament will have a point system where players who are awarded for the deep runs will rank on an official table. The one with the most points will receive a reward of $100,000 provided by Poker Central. Moreover, the same player will also receive a trophy.
There will be a total of ten events in the US Poker Open. Some of the events that will be included are $10k, $25k, and $50k events. The Main Event is for $100,000 and will start on February 22. The schedule is really tight, with two extra Short Deck events that feature no-limit hold’em and pot limit Omaha-type contests. The Short Deck events will begin on February 16 and 20. One of them will have a $10,000 buy-in and the other $25,000.
The tournaments will be streamed live on the PokerGO platform for streaming and will later be played on NBC Sports Network in a couple of original episodes.
The first U.S Poker Open was intense but entertaining. Stephen Chidwick was on the top of his game back then and managed to cash in five out of eight events that took place last year. In fact, he managed to win two back-to-back events for $25K and finish on the second place on the third $25k event. Chidwick managed to earn a total of $1,256,650 in that tournament. More importantly, he was the first player to take the US Poker Open trophy and title.
According to Sean McCormack, who is a director of poker operations at ARIA, this venue is definitely the epicenter of the high-roller poker action. He stated that they would continue to bring guests to some of the best poker events in the world. Furthermore, he added that their partnership with Poker Central is firm and that the PokerGO studio foundation is something that connects them.
Vice President of Content Sam Simmons is happy and eager to see the continuation of their partnership with Aria. He stated that the turnout across all phases of High Roller Triple Crown was still impressive and that they were expecting the upward trend to continue with the US Poker Open and the final award of $100,000.
All poker professionals and enthusiasts are looking forward to February 2019 for this amazing event. Who will be the next star?
