The U.S. Poker Open® will return from June 3-15, 2021, at the PokerGO Studio from ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The 12-event schedule will feature a mixture of No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha, Big Bet Mix, 8-Game, and Short Deck events over the two weeks of high-stakes poker tournaments. The first ten events will be $10,000 buy-in tournaments, while the final two No-Limit Hold’em tournaments will be a $25,000 and $50,000 buy-in. All tournaments will feature a double re-entry apart from the final $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em event which will be a single re-entry.
In 2018, Stephen Chidwick won the inaugural U.S. Poker Open Championship after cashing for a total of $1,256,650 in prize money which included two wins and five final tables. In 2019, David Peters won the U.S. Poker Championship on the back of his Main Event victory, three final tables, and a total of $1,584,800 in earnings.
All tournaments will be part of the PokerGO Tour with players earning points based on the amount they cash for. The points awarded during the U.S. Poker Open will also decide who wins the U.S. Poker Open Championship, $50,000 in added prize money, and the new Golden Eagle Trophy.
All the U.S. Poker Open final tables will be live-streamed exclusively on OTT service PokerGO® from 4 p.m. ET.
