11 Days of US Poker Open Live Reporting Coverage Kicks Off Tomorrow

2019 US Poker Open

The second annual US Poker Open (USPO) kicks off a 10-event series on Wednesday. Not only will all ten final tables be streamed on a 30-minute delay exclusively on PokerGO from the PokerGO Studio at ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, both Poker Central and PokerNews will be bringing you live updates from every event for 11 days straight.

The USPO marks the first series in the High Roller Triple Crown, which also consists of the Poker Masters and Super High Roller Bowl. The schedule consists of six no-limit hold’em tournaments, a pair of pot-limit Omaha events, and both Short Deck and 8-Game variants. Tournament fees will be waived for players who register by 2 p.m. local time.

The 2019 USPO champion, determined by the player who accumulates the most High Roller of the Year (HROY) points across all events, will be awarded a $100,000 bonus payday as well as a championship trophy.

Last year, the inaugural USPO offered up more than $8 million in prize pools over eight events. Among those to capture titles were Justin Bonomo (Event #1: $10,000 NLH for $190,400), David Peters (Event #7: $25,000 NLH for $400,000), and Keith Tilston (Event #8: $50,000 Main Event for $660,000).

Then there was Stephen Chidwick, who took down back-to-back titles in Event #3: $25,000 NLH and Event #4: $25,000 Mixed Game Championship for $374,000 and $382,500 respectively. Toss in three other final table cashes and Chidwick won more than $1.2 million on his way to becoming the first USPO champion.
