The 2023 U.S. Poker Open continued from the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, with Event #5: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em.

Jeremy Ausmus holds the chip lead heading into the final day with 2,345,000 in chips. He would sit ahead of Darren Elias, Jesse Lonis, Phil Hellmuth, George Wolff, Allan Le, and Aram Oganyan who will all return on Wednesday at 12 p.m. PT to play out Event #5 on the PokerGO live stream that will air at 1 p.m. PT.

Le won Event #4 earlier in the day and will have an opportunity to take the lead on the USPO leaderboard in the race for the Golden Eagle and $50,000 championship bonus. Ren Lin took over the lead when he picked up his third cash of the series in this event, while Nacho Barbero now sits second on that leaderboard.

The 88-entrant field created a prize pool of $880,000 and the top 13 players would finish in the money. Cherish Andrews, Cary Katz, and Jesse Lonis were each at risk on the bubble but secured doubles to survive. Eventually, it would be Chris Moorman eliminated on the money bubble when he got his remaining stack of just over ten big blinds in with ace-king suited and failed to improve against Andrews' nines.

Jim Collopy (13th), Cary Katz (12th), Ren Lin (11th), John Riordan (10th), and Cherish Andrews (9th) were all eliminated prior to reaching the final table of eight. David Stamm would fall in eighth place when he ran eights into Elias' aces, causing Elias to soar up the leaderboard. The remaining seven players played out the end of the level until 1:30 a.m. when they bagged and tagged to return for the streamed final table.
