The Five Diamond World Poker Classic kicked off last week at the Bellagio Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, and the high roller portion of the schedule is now complete following the 13th high roller tournament of the series.
The Bellagio High Roller Event #13: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em attracted a 54-entrant field that created a prize pool of $1,350,000. It would be local player Andrew Lichtenberger emerging victorious to capture his third victory and eighth cash on the PokerGO Tour presented by Guaranteed Rate for 2021.
Lichtenberger now eclipses $5.5 million in lifetime tournament earnings and sits 78th on the All-Time Money List behind Connor Drinan and ahead of Philipp Gruissem. Lichtenberger also sits in 44th place on the PokerGO Tour leaderboard with 818 points with just two qualifying events remaining in 2021.
This tournament is part of the PokerGO Tour with players earning points based on the amount they cash for. The full PokerGO Tour schedule can be found here, and the current PokerGO Tour presented by Guaranteed Rate leaderboard is available here.
