Cash games returned to PokerGO this week and while a few favorites headlined both nights of “$25K Elevator” action, a Poker After Dark newcomer was the big winner across both sessions. After making a brief appearance during last year’s Super High Roller Cash Game, Ralph Wong made his full-blown PokerGO debut on Poker After Dark this week.
Wong ended Tuesday’s session with every chip on the table and was one of three players left standing on Wednesday. In total, his Poker After Dark profit exceeded $150,000 and Wong’s wins came in every possible way.
While Wong’s biggest win came when he picked up pocket aces in the perfect spot against Sean Winter, the most important pot of the night wasn’t as easy. Super High Roller Cash Game crasher Adrian Attenborough and Wong have some history and the Aussie went for another huge bluff late on Tuesday night.

Attenborough’s big river bet may have worked, but Wong wasn’t going anywhere with two pair. The pot made Wong the massive chip leader and he went on to book his first Poker After Dark win, defeating Chris Hunichen heads up for the title. “Big Huni” also made his debut during “$25K Elevator” week.
Justin Young was the only non-newcomer to survive either hybrid cash game session. The Las Vegas cash game professional and recent Poker After Dark regular also used Winter to work his way up the leaderboard. It wasn’t aces vs. kings, but it was a classic flip.
The biggest pot of the night goes to @Justinyoung07! 💰
