The PokerGO Tour continues in 2021 with tens of millions of dollars at stake across 150 tournaments spanning across the globe. The PokerGO Tour will celebrate the most elite professional poker players with the PokerGO Tour Rankings showcasing who holds the top spot in the world of high-stakes poker players.
The top performer on the PokerGO Tour Leaderboard presented by Guaranteed Rate will be awarded $100,000 in prize money and be named Player of the Year, while cash prizes of $50,000 and $25,000 will also be awarded to the player that finishes second and third, respectively.
Following the conclusion of the five Seminole High Roller tournaments that were part of the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open, and the four Venetian High Roller tournaments, the entire PokerGO Tour Leaderboard presented by Guaranteed Rate has seen changes across the board. The winners at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open included Chris Brewer, Matthew Sabia, Joe McKeehen, Sam Soverel, and 20-year-old Zhuang Ruan, while winners at the Venetian included Ali Imsirovic, Sean Perry, and Andrew Lichtenberger who won two events.
The biggest mover since the conclusion of the PokerGO Cup was Cary Katz who climbed into fifth spot overall after collecting five cashes and winning nearly $650,000 in prize money. Both Joe McKeehen and Andrew Lichtenberger also vaulted up the PokerGO Tour Leaderboard presented by Guaranteed Rate with McKeehen moving into 13th on the back of chopping the $25,500 The Big 4 High Roller for $550,990, while Lichtenberger won two events and cashed in three events at the Venetian High Rollers.
Poker Masters Purple Jacket winner Ali Imsirovic extended his lead on top with a win and two cashes, while Sean Perry closed the gap and became the second player to eclipse the 2,000-point mark on the back of one win and four cashes.
