PokerGO Tour PLO Series Wraps Up

The PokerGO Tour PLO Series just recently wrapped up, and it was an event in which some big prizes were handed out. This event attracted some of the best live poker players in the industry, but it was also a chance for other players to make some noise.

There were a total of 10 tournaments played at the PGT PLO Series, and two different players walked away with two titles. Pot sizes varied throughout the series, and that was the case when it came to the buy-ins as well. 

Some of the tournaments had a buy-in of as low as $5,100, while the biggest players were able to pay more than $25,000 to compete. Daniel Negreanu continued his hot start in 2024 by taking home a big title, but he wasn’t one of the standout performers. 

Sipila Cashes In

Samuli Sipila was one of the players that had a big run at the PGT PLO Series as he was able to come away with two wins. Not only did Sipila win twice, but both of those wins came at events in which there was a pretty nice payout. 

The first win came at Event Number 4, and he took home $240,000 in an event that had a buy-in of $10,100. There were 89 players in that tournament, and that win proved that Sipila had what it takes to navigate through a big field. 

Event number seven was the next cash for Sipila and this was one that was played as a progressive bounty style tournament. There were 74 entries in that tournament, and Sipila was able to rack up some nice bounties along the way. 

Not only did he win two events throughout this series, but he was also at the final table four other times. By getting to the final table that many times, he was able to win the series crown for the most money. 

Parssinen Plays Great Poker

Sipila wasn’t the only player to win two tournaments during this series, and that’s extremely rare when it comes to one single event. Eelis Parssinen was also able to take home two victories, and it was a big payday for him. 

The wins from Parssinen came farther apart than what Sipila was able to pull off, and he was forced to stick around for longer. Parssinen won over $131,000 plus some bounties in the second event of this series, and that win seemingly came out of nowhere. 

After winning one tournament, it was pretty clear that Parssinen was going to be a name to watch in this event, and he was able to cash in again at event number eight. That win came in a field of 83 players, and he was able to claim $348,600 in that big event. 

Seth Davies might not have won two tournaments in this series, but he did win over $522,000 in one single tournament in event number 9 at the PGT PLO Series.
