  • Aram Zobian has won Event #6: $15,100 No-Limit Hold’em for $264,290.
  • It was the largest prize awarded so far.
  • The victory plus three cashes would suffice to top the leaderboard of the series.

So far, six of the scheduled 2024 PokerGO U.S. Poker Open events have concluded.

Aram Zobian is currently in the lead as he is getting ready to enter the final stretch after he managed to take down Event #6: $15,100 No-Limit Hold’em for $264,290 after besting the rest of 61 entrants in the buy-in event with a prize pool of $930,000.

The prize was the biggest yet to be awarded. The victory plus three cashes would be enough to top the leaderboard of the series.

Zobian also scooped up 298 PGT Points.

Heated Final Table Action

The six-handed final table was officially set after the exit of Daniel Negreanu, Event #2’s champion Jesse Lonis and John Riordan in the money places.

After John Andress managed to run his ace-king into Joey Weissman‘s pocket aces, he eventually busted in sixth prior to Dan Shak’s short stack falling at the hands of Brock Wilson’s ace-ten crushed his ten-nine.

Weismann was handed over the fourth place and the final five-figure score of the tourney after he turned trip sevens with suited ace-seven.

Zobian’s six-four improved to a straight on the river. As Wilson’s stack began to dwindle, the player decided to call off his last big blinds with nine-seven following Zobian’s open-shoved from the small blind.

After Zobian showed an ace-nine, both players managed to improve to two pair, nines and threes.

However, Zobian’s ace-kicker played, kicking Wilson out. This signaled the start of Zobian’s one-on-one battle with Sam Laskowitz.

Despite enjoying more than a two-to-one chip lead, Zobian could not shake off his opponent. The two eventually had to strike a deal, leaving $20,000 and the trophy in play.

The final hand saw Laskowitz improve to trip kings on the river. However, Zobian’s king of spades brought him a flush and the final victory.

While many fingers were pointing at Daniel Negreanu as the winner of the tournament after his significant soar into a lead in Event #5: $10,100 No-Limit Hold’em, Matthew Wantman and the deck proved them wrong.

Negreanu came in second and took home $151,800 while Wantman banked $239,200 along with the champion title.
