The 2024 PGT PLO Series presented by PLO Mastermind continued at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada with Event #7: $15,100 Pot-Limit Omaha Progressive Bounty.

Finland's Samuli Sipila bagged the chip lead and holds over 47% of the chips in play as five players remain. Christopher Frank, Sean Winter, Nick Schulman, and Jim Collopy round out the players who will return for the final day as play resumes at 12 p.m. PT on Wednesday, March 27 with the delayed final table stream beginning at 1 p.m. PT on PokerGO.

The 74-entrant field created a prize pool of $1,110,000. $444,000 of it went to the bounty prize pool, while $666,000 went to the regular prize pool of which the top 11 finishers earned a piece. After a lengthy bubble, Amir Mirrasouli was the unfortunate bubble boy when he got his chips in with aces, but Sipila rivered a straight. Among those to cash were John Riordan (11th), Joao Simao (10th), and Joshua Ladines (9th).

Later on in the night, Chino Rheem doubled up Collopy, and soon got his short stack in against Frank. Rheem couldn't improve and seven players converged on a single table. When the final table began, Frank and Sipila were nearly even in chips, but that would soon change as Sipila was in a great position directly to the left of Frank. Sipila eliminated Cliff Josephy in seventh place and continue to leverage his large stack and position by playing the majority of pots and accumulating chips.

Daniel Negreanu amassed a huge stack and collected many bounties early in the day, but he would find himself as the short stack when six players remained. He would eventually get his chips in against Sipila. Sipila flopped two pair before Negreanu turned a superior two pair and was likely to double. However, the river gave Sipila a full house, and "Kid Poker" was eliminated in sixth place, while the five remaining players bagged to return for the streamed final table.

Sipila won Event #4 and is currently second on the PGT PLO series leaderboard with 274 points in the race for the PGT Gold Cup and $10,000 PGT Passport. He will have an opportunity to take a big lead over Event #6 winner Dylan Weisman who currently sits atop the leaderboard with 277 points.

Each player has locked up $46,620 in addition to their collected bounties but all eyes will be on the $159,840 first-place prize, 270 PGT points, and Event #7 trophy.
