The US Poker Open will return in 2021 after being missing for a year due to the epidemic. This series of high-stakes live poker tournaments will be held from June 3rd to 15th at the PokerGO Studios at ARIA Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. There are 12 games planned, with buy-in ranging from US$10,000 to US$50,000.
US Poker Open in 2021 will be part of the upcoming PokerGO Tour.
All 12 games offered during this series of events will be awarded ranking points based on the number of players cashed in. With 22 qualifying matches so far in 2021, Ali Imsirovic currently ranks first on the PokerGO Tour leaderboard with 1,145 points, 10 reward circles, 4 championships, and an income of 1,659,010 USD.
The points system will also be used to determine the champion of the US Open. The player award for this series will have an additional $50,000 bonus and a new “Golden Eagle Trophy”.
Seven of the twelve events feature traditional Texas Hold’em, while the remaining five events feature various other games, including Pot Limit Omaha and Short Deck.
This will mark the third operation of the USPO. Those who win the trophy this year will join a short but elite list of champions. Stephen Chidwick stood out in the inaugural USPO held in February 2018, cashing out five of the eight events offered. He won in two of these games and earned $1,256,600 in the entire series. The most recent USPO was held in the winter of 2019. David Peters cashed a total of $1.584 million in 10 games that year, won the final game of the series, and won the trophy with a final lead of only 10 ranking points.
As in previous years, the final table of each event will be broadcast live on the OTT service PokerGO, starting at 4 pm every day during the entire series.
