Weisman Wins Big on PokerGO Tour

The PokerGO Studios at the ARIA in Las Vegas have been extremely busy over the past week, as the PokerGO Tour has been taking place. There have been some big tournaments over the last few weeks, and a number of different players have been cashing in. 

Some surprising winners have picked up some huge cash prizes in this event up to this point, but the most recent winner wasn’t a surprise. Dylan Weisman came away with the most recent win as he brought home more than $229,000 at the $10,100 buy-in Pot Limit Omaha event. 

Since the buy-in for this tournament was so large, there were just 85 players that entered this competition. Some tournaments on this tour have been enticing to lower level players, but not this big of an event. 

The top six players were all able to take home at least $42,000, and that’s a massive payday for one single poker tournament. Not only are players competing for some big cash prizes, but there are also some valuable POY points available at all of these events. 

Weisman Cashes In

Winning over $229,000 in one single day is a huge payout for any live poker player, but Weisman has actually won more than that at least three other times throughout his career. He has now won $3.5 million throughout his career, and nearly all of his biggest payouts have come at Pot Limit Omaha style tournaments. 

Weisman has been busy this week playing on the PokerGO Tour Series, but he is also known for some past performances at the World Series of Poker. While some players tend to prefer playing No’Limit Hold’Em, Weisman has made a career out of winning tournaments with this style of play.

It has already been a massive year for Weisman as well, and that could lead to some bigger things in the coming months. Weisman has already made seven final tables in 2024, and he has picked up three tournament wins. 

By winning this event, Weisman was also able to bring home 480 Card Player Player of the Year points, and he now sits in 11th place. He is also the current leader when it comes to season long points on the PokerGO Tour, and he has increased his lead this week.


Some Great Poker Action

There were just two days of poker action played at this event, and only seven players advanced to the second day. Weisman had the chip lead when the second day started, and he actually sent the first two players home himself.

Jordan Spurlin was making a charge at the final table as he continued to win hands in which he went all-in. That luck eventually ran out for Spurlin as he ended his run in third place at this event. 

Lautaro Guerra finished in second place in this event, and he actually took the chip lead at one point in heads up play. Weisman proved why he has had so much success when playing live poker as he responded with some great hands.
