The youngest of the PGT majors, the PokerGO Cup began in 2021 and quickly grew to become one of the most competitive high-stakes tournament series in poker. It’s now a mainstay on the PokerGO Tour schedule, commonly taking place during the early part of each PGT season.

The PokerGO Cup is part of the PGT. It’s a series of high-stakes poker tournaments taking place at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, with a series-long leaderboard that tracks player performance and is used to crown the overall series champion. Through the first four editions of the PokerGO Cup, more than $31,000,000 in prize money has been awarded.

The PokerGO Cup has certainly seen some of the PGT’s heaviest hitters walk away with the silver cup. The first player to ever win a PokerGO Cup series was the one and only Daniel Negreanu, and he was followed by Jeremy Ausmus, Cary Katz, and Jonathan Little.

The PokerGO Cup launched in 2021. That year, it was a series of eight no-limit hold’em tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $10,000 to $100,000. Negreanu finished atop the series leaderboard thanks to one victory, four cashes, and $996,200 in winnings. Negreanu won Event #7: $50,000 NL Hold’em for $700,000. He also finished fourth in the final event, the $100,000 NL Hold’em finale, for $230,000. In that final event, Negreanu needed Cary Katz to get the win so that Negreanu could lock up the leaderboard title. Katz won the final event, which ultimately gave Negreanu the first-ever PokerGO Cup title.

The second edition of the PokerGO Cup was in 2022, and it was another eight no-limit hold’em tournaments on the schedule. This time, the buy-ins ranged from $10,000 to $50,000. It was a hotly contested leaderboard race, but one that saw Jeremy Ausmus come out on top. Included in Ausmus’ success during the series was a victory in Event #4: $15,000 NL Hold’em for $263,250. He had three other top-three finishes during the series.

The 2023 PokerGO Cup was similar to the 2022 version with eight no-limit hold’em tournaments ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 for buy-ins. Cary Katz became the series winner, narrowly edging out Anthony Hu by six points on the leaderboard. Katz didn’t have any victories during the series, but he did have five cashes, including a second-place finish to Isaac Haxton in the $50,000 finale for $364,000.

The 2024 PokerGO Cup featured eight tournaments once again, although this time the buy-ins ranged from $5,000 to $25,000. The series was well-attended across all events, and the leaderboard race came down to the final event. In the finale, Jonathan Little earned his second victory of the series and took the 2024 PokerGO Cup crown. Little finished with two wins, four cashes, and $730,350 in prize money won.

The PokerGO Cup is part of the PGT. You can find the full schedule of events at pgt.com/schedule.
