The high roller action returns to Las Vegas, Nevada, and ARIA Resort & Casino with three ARIA High Rollers and the inaugural PGT Stairway running from April 19-22, 2022.
On Tuesday, April 19, there will be a $3,200 buy-in tournament that will give players an opportunity to play a high roller structure at a considerably smaller price point. The following day will be the first of three ARIA High Rollers beginning with a $10,000 buy-in tournament, followed by a day off for the start of the PGT Heads-Up Showdown, followed by another $10,000 buy-in tournament on Friday, April 21, and then a $15,000 buy-in tournament on Saturday, April 22.
For the three ARIA High Rollers, players must be in the registration line by 12 p.m. PT to qualify for any discounts, and unlimited reentries are allowed in all events until the start of Level 7 with each event ending in one day.

The ARIA High Rollers are part of the PokerGO Tour (PGT). Players can earn PGT leaderboard points based on the amount they cash for.
Following the conclusion of Super High Roller Series Europe, Ali Imsirovic climbs to the top spot on the 2022 PGT leaderboard. Imsirovic currently sits on 1,839 points after he cashed four times in North Cyprus and amassed $907,700 in tournament winnings.
Trailing Imsirovic is a familiar poker name, but an unfamiliar one on the PGT as Phil Ivey has surged into the second spot following Super High Roller Series Europe. Ivey won two events, cashed five times, and earned $2,880,100 in winnings on his way to winning the Super High Roller Series Europe Championship. Ivey amassed 1,725 PGT points to sit behind Imsirovic, while Jake Schindler moved into third overall on the PGT leaderboard with 1,472 points. Isaac Kempton (1,375) and Alex Foxen (1,295) round out the top five, while a total of 13 players sit with over 1,000 PGT points.
The current PokerGO Tour leaderboard is available here.
