The PokerGO Tour is underway for 2021 with tens of millions of dollars at stake across 150 tournaments spanning across the globe. The PokerGO Tour will celebrate the most elite professional poker players with the PokerGO Tour Rankings showcasing who holds the top spot in the world of high-stakes poker players.
The top performer in the PokerGO Tour will be awarded $100,000 in prize money and be named Player of the Year, while cash prizes of $50,000 and $25,000 will also be awarded to the player that finishes second and third, respectively.
Following the conclusion of the Seminole High Rollers that saw Arthur Conan and Chad Eveslage grab victories, attention turned to the ARIA High Rollers. There were four events – two $10,000 buy-ins, and two $25,000 buy-ins – and winners included Matas Cimbolas, Sergio Aido, Bill Klein, and Jake Schindler.
Poker Masters Purple Jacket winner Ali Imsirovic retains his top spot on the PokerGO Tour leaderboard after collecting two cashes to be the first player to eclipse the 1,000-point barrier. Imsirovic currently sits on 1,145 points and has four wins, ten cashes, and $1,659,010 in winnings. Sean Perry remains in second place, but it is Sean Winter who moved into third after a third-place and fourth-place finish. Chris Brewer dropped down to fourth place, while Brock Wilson remains in fifth on 487 points.
Most of the movement following the ARIA High Rollers occurred in the middle of the PokerGO Tour leaderboard, but Jake Schindler was the biggest mover as he climbed into seventh and sits with 444 points, one win, six cashes, and $638,408 in winnings.
