The inaugural PGT Mixed Games will be the second series of the 2023 PokerGO Tour (PGT) season, and will run from February 4-11, 2023, inside the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The eight-event schedule was created by recommendations from players that expressed a need for a high-stakes mixed-game series. The events on the schedule are a variety of games to test some of the world's best players in across a full spectrum of poker games. The series opens with H.O.R.S.E. and is followed by 8-Game, Triple Stud Mix, Big Bet Mix, and Triple Draw Mix. Thursday's event is a Dealer's Choice that includes 20 different game options, while the $25,500 buy-in 10-Game Championship will be the marquee event of the series. The final day will be a No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw.

Who Will Win the PGT MIxed Games Cup?

Daniel Negreanu is the front-runner to win the inaugural PGT Mixed Games Cup, as he has declared he will not be attending the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure in the Bahamas and will be focusing on this series. Other local players that will definitely contend for the PGT Mixed Games Cup and $25,000 Championship bonus include Eli Elezra, John Monnette, and David "ODB" Baker.

With Bryce Yockey running a fantasy-style pool throughout the series, we have already been alerted to some other big names from out-of-state that will be in attendance for the series. Yockey leads a crew that includes Dan Zack, Alex Livingston, Benny Glaser, and Johannes Becker that will be playing the inaugural PGT Mixed Games.
