The 2024 PGT PLO Series presented by PLO Mastermind continued at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada with Event #5: $5,100 Pot-Limit Omaha Progressive Bounty.

Bruno Furth bagged the chip lead and holds over 32% of the chips in play as six players remain. Josh Arieh, Blake Hanson, Ben Lamb, Ronald Keijzer, and Kamel Mokhammad round out the players who will return for the final day as play resumes at 12 p.m. PT on Monday, March 25 with the delayed final table stream beginning at 1 p.m. PT on PokerGO.

In this progressive bounty format, when you eliminate another player, you receive half of their bounty as a cash prize, while the other half goes towards increasing your own bounty.

The 139-entrant field created a prize pool of $695,000. $278,000 of it went to the bounty prize pool, while $417,000 went to the regular prize pool of which the top 20 finishers earned a piece. Justin Young was the unfortunate bubble boy when he got his chips in on the turn with the nut wheel, but the river gave his opponent Broadway to send him to the rail. Among those to cash were Zhen Cai (18th), Dylan Weisman (15th), Alex Livingston (13th), Eelis Parssinen (12th), Nick Schulman (10th), and Erik Seidel (9th).

The progressive bounty format provided a lot of four-card action as several huge pots and multi-way all-ins transpired on the way to the final table. Furth vaulted into the lead when he was involved in such a pot against James Chen and Bryce Yockey. Furth's kings somehow held to give him one-third of the chips in play, while Chen was eliminated in eighth place and Yockey was left with crumbs.

Seven players converged on a single table and Yockey's short stack would soon go into the middle in another three-way all-in. Mokhammad turned a nut flush to more than double on the last hand of the night, while Yockey was eliminated in seventh place for his fourth cash of the series, and the six remaining players bagged to return for the streamed final table.

Each player has locked up $20,850 in addition to their collected bounties but all eyes will be on the $80,275 first-place prize, 140 PGT points, and Event #5 trophy.
