The 2022 PokerGO Tour PGT Championship will feature a $500,000 win-win format

The second season of Visit PokerGO will end with a one-off winner-takes-all showdown with the last player standing to win a $500,000 payday. the PGT Championship will see the top 21 ranked players in the Tour Ranking Points Race at the end of the season go head-to-head with a unique twist: players will start the event with their starting stacks based on their Ranking Points they have earned throughout the season.

“The PGT is the battleground for the most elite poker players in the world, and it’s only fitting that we honor the best of the best in an extraordinary way,” said Mori Eskandani, President of PokerGO® in a press release on the new event. “We are proud to award the 2022 award PGT champion of the season with a $500,000 prize as we continue to celebrate the most talented players our game has to offer.

The event will start with three seven-handed tables, with the official final table to be broadcast on PokerGO.com expected to be a six-handed affair. the official PGT website currently lists December 20 as the start date for the two-day event.

There have already been 22 events so far this year that count towards the PGT points race. Nick Petrangelo currently sits atop the ranking, with three titles, four cashes and more than $2.1 million in revenue since the beginning of the year. Ali Imsirovic, who won both the PGT and card player Racing Player of the Year in 2021, currently sits third in the standings. He won 14 titles and banked over $6 million in the inaugural season.

The current schedule lists another 94 qualifying events remaining before the PGT Championship gets started. This number is, of course, subject to change during the year. The next high-stakes events on the agenda are a trio of big players in the Wynn Millions series from March 6 to 8. The 12 event American Poker Open will then begin on March 16.
