US Poker Open returns in February

The popular high-roller series will offer 10 tournaments and $100K extra bonus for the overall champion.

As it is usual, ARIA Casino and PokerCentral bring one of the most prestigious events out there. Their Poker Masters series and Super High Roller Bowl, alongside with the US Poker Open represent the Triple Crown of the high-roller scene. All of the three events belong to the most popular tournament festivals both amongst players and - thanks to the exclusive live stream at PokerGO - the fans.

Last year, the 8 events of the USPO saw seven different champions, with Stephen Chidwick crushing the whole competition, cashing in five events, reaching the final table four times and taking down two tournaments, for $1,256,650 in overall earnings.

Just like the inaugural event, the upcoming edition will be streamed exclusively on PokerGO, between February 13 and 23, 2019. Apparently, both the ARIA Casino and Poker Central are thrilled about the festival. “The U.S. Poker Open, and the trio of high roller majors including Super High Roller Bowl and Poker Masters that comprise the High Roller Triple Crown, further solidifies ARIA as the epicenter of high-stakes poker action,” said Sean McCormack, director of poker operations for ARIA. “We will continue to bring our guests the most player-friendly poker events in the industry with our Poker Central partnership firmly in place through the foundation of the PokerGO Studio.”

“The turnout across each phase of the High Roller Triple Crown continues to impress and, with the next U.S. Poker Open champion receiving a cash award of $100,000, we’re expecting that trend to continue,” Vice president of content at Poker Central, Sam Simmons said. “The entire series will serve as a fitting kickoff to a year of even more world-class live events and original programming that PokerGO subscribers will love,” he added.

Next year's schedule will include 6 No Limit Hold'em events, 2 Pot Limit Omaha and 2 Short Deck Hold'em tournaments, with buy-ins ranging between $10,000 and $100,000 for the Main Event.
