The 2023 PokerGO Cup continued on Wednesday with Event #7: $25,000 No-Limit Hold'em at the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The 31-entrant field is down to the final five players and David Peters holds the chip lead in the penultimate event of the series. Daniel Negreanu is the only other player with a seven-figure stack, while Daniel Colpoys, Sam Soverel, and Punnat Punsri round out the remaining contenders.

Peters bagged the overnight chip lead in Event #1 before he ultimately finished in fourth place, and he will be in good shape to improve upon that result. Negreanu claimed his third cash of the series and will be looking to add another trophy to his extensive collection of hardware.

Current PokerGO Cup series frontrunner Anthony Hu was eliminated in tenth place when his pocket sixes couldn't win the race against Negreanu's ace-king. Hu was denied an opportunity to add to his points total in pursuit of the PokerGO Cup title and $50,000 championship bonus, while Negreanu nearly doubled his stack on that hand en route to the final table.

Masashi Oya had an up-and-down day and was ultimately ousted in ninth place before the remaining players converged on a single table. From there, the eliminations occurred swiftly as Bill Klein exited in eighth when he couldn't win a flip against Punsri and Nick Schulman was gone in seventh when he ran into Negreanu's superior ace.

Sean Winter currently sits in the top ten on the PokerGO Cup series leaderboard thanks to his victory in Event #1, but he was denied another cash when he got his shorter stack in with pocket tens against the pocket eights of Colpoys. A double seemed likely, but an unfortunate two-outer spiked the river to eliminate Winter on the money bubble, ending the night as the five remaining players bagged to return for the streamed final table.

The remaining players have each locked up $54,250, but all eyes will be on the $310,000 first-place prize, trophy, and 186 PGT points which come with the title of Event #7 champion.
