The 2022 PokerGO Cup Event #3: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em came to a close Saturday afternoon at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas. What started with 80 entrants played down to a champion, and that individual was none other than Jake Daniels.

Daniels defeated three-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner Jeremy Ausmus heads-up for the victory. He earned $200,000 in doing so, while the runner-up received $144,000.

Saturday was also the start of Event #4: $15,000 No-Limit Hold'em. When registration closed, there were 65 entrants paid. The final table will air on PokerGO starting at 1 p.m. Sunday.

Daniel Negreanu, the PokerGO Cup champion last year, appeared to be on his way to securing his first cash of the series, but he ended up finishing in 11th place right on the money bubble when his {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds} was outdrawn by Brock Wilson's {q-Spades}{7-Clubs} when the {7-Spades} hit on the river.

Wilson, Ausmus, Cary Katz, and Alex Foxen were among the players remaining at the time of publishing.
