The 2024 PGT Kickoff continued at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Sergei Kislinskii bagged the top stack with 2,645,000 to lead the seven remaining players in Event #2: $5,100 No-Limit Hold'em.

Dylan Weisman sits just behind in chips, while Event #1 winner David Coleman, Matthew McEwan, Jeremy Becker, Jesse Lonis, and Victoria Livschitz round out the players who will return for the final day as play resumes at 12 p.m. PT on Saturday, January 13 with the delayed final table stream beginning at 1 p.m. PT on PokerGO.

The healthy field of 90 entrants created a prize pool of $450,000 and the top 13 finishers earned a piece of it. The bubble lasted nearly two hours with many doubles occurring in the meanwhile, before Ping Liu got his remaining stack of less than a big blind in with jacks against ace-six and busted when an ace came on the turn.

The eliminations would then occur very quickly, and the final table was set less than a half-hour after the bubble burst. Adam Walton (13th), Jared Bleznick (12th), Joao Simao (11th), Jeremy Ausmus (10th), Lewis Spencer (9th), and Sean Winter (8th) all made it into the money but fell short of the final table.

Coleman, Ausmus, and Spencer have all cashed in both events thus far, and Coleman will be looking to go back-to-back after he was victorious over the 89-entrant field in Event #1.

The seven remaining players will return with $18,000 locked up, but all eyes will be on the first-place prize of $121,500.
