2021 US Poker Open Featuring 12 HR Tournaments Starts On June 3
The full schedule for the 2021 US Poker Open has been released! The popular festival returns this year at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas from June 3-15, featuring 12 days of top-notch high-stakes action.
The series was dropped in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and now it’s finally back, giving players the chance to continue chasing for tournament glory.
The 2021 edition of the US Poker Open features 12 high roller events, with buy-ins ranging from $10,000 all the way up to $50,000.
Players will have a variety of formats to choose from, including no-limit hold’em, pot-limit Omaha, short deck, big bet mix and eight-game mix.
The first 10 events on the schedule, running from June 3-12, feature a buy-in of $10,000. On June 13, a $25,000 buy-in NLH event will take place, with the action culminating in a $50,000 buy-in NLH Main Event on June 14. Double re-entry is allowed across the first 11 events, but players will only be allowed to re-enter once into the Main Event.
The player earning the highest number of points throughout the series will be declared as overall series champion and will take home an extra $50,000 in prize money, alongside a new Golden Eagle Trophy.
As usual, each final table will be live-streamed on PokerGO.
US Poker Open To Crown A Champion for the Third Year Running
The US Poker Open debuted in 2018, months after the PokerGO Studio opened its doors at the Aria Resort and Casino. English poker pro Stephen Chidwick became the first-ever series champion after winning two events and cashing in three more, walking away with a huge $1,256,600 in total winnings.
The latest edition of the festival took place in 2019, with David Peters coming out on top, taking home $1,584,000 throughout the series. The American poker pro shipped the $100K buy-in Main Event to secure the US Poker Open title, surpassing Sean Winter by just 10 points.
The US Poker Open is one of PokerGO’s proprietary live poker festivals. It will run as part of the 2021 PokerGO Tour, and all 12 events on the schedule will count toward the PokerGO Tour leaderboard. The next events on PokerGO’s live poker calendar include the PokerGO Cup (July 1-10), and the PokerGO Heads-Up Championship which takes place on July 12.
Poker Masters will run from September 13-24, followed by the popular Super High Roller Bowl on September 26.
