Following some mixed games and Omaha dominating the past few months of the 2024 PokerGO Tour (PGT) season, the month of April would welcome back some two-card action with the U.S. Poker Open taking center stage at the PokerGO Studio.

David Coleman regained top spot on the PGT leaderboard after winning Event #4: $10,100 No-Limit Hold'em for $202,300. Coleman also cashed two additional times and added 322 PGT points to his season tally, which now stands at 1,259 PGT points. The biggest mover at the U.S. Poker Open was the series champion Aram Zobian. Zobian won Event #6: $15,100 No-Limit Hold'em and cashed three additional times, including the $25k finale, to accumulate 616 PGT points. Along with winning the U.S. Poker Golden Eagle trophy and a $25,000 PGT Passport, Zobian moved into third place on the PGT leaderboard with 1,048 PGT points.

Dylan Weisman and Daniel Negreanu didn't have a strong U.S. Poker Open, but they sit in second and fourth on the PGT leaderboard, respectively. Stephen Chidwick was a big mover following his U.S. Poker Open campaign, which saw him win Event #8: $25,200 No-Limit Hold'em for $429,000. Chidwick cashed a total of four times for 427 PGT points and moved into sixth on the PGT leaderboard with 711 PGT points. Kristen Foxen sits seventh overall with 678 PGT points, while Jesse Lonis surged up into eighth overall on the PGT leaderboard with 634 PGT points. Lonis won Event #2: $10,100 No-Limit Hold'em for $252,450 and cashed an additional three times to collect 400 PGT points during the U.S. Poker Open.

Rounding out the top ten on the PGT leaderboard include PokerGO Cup champion Jonathan Little with 591 PGT points and PGT PLO Series $25k Championship winner Seth Davies with 590 PGT points.

The series runs from April 24 to May 5, with the marquee event being the $3,300 buy-in No-Limit Hold'em Main Event. There is a $2,000,000 prize pool guarantee and eight opening flights, including four turbo flights.
