After a break in PokerGO live events action to transition into the state-of-the-art PokerGO Studio, the wait for more live poker is officially over. The PokerGO Studio will officially open on May 15, with back-to-back nights of Poker After Dark cash games. “Open House” week will feature two $100/$200 No Limit Hold’em sessions, with both games boasting a $200 big blind ante and a $10,000 minimum buy-in. The games will also feature a $40,000 capped buy-in.
The first “Open House” cash game is headlined by INSIDERS: Super High Roller Bowl 2018 stars Daniel Negreanu and Brandon Adams, as well as Eli Elezra. The three-time WSOP bracelet winner was a regular in the opening seasons of Poker After Dark, but Elezra has yet to feature since August’s reboot. That changes this week.
Maria Ho, the newest inductee to the Women in Poker Hall of Fame, returns to PokerGO, while Larry Greenberg, Alan Richardson, and Jeremy Kaufman will make their debuts on Tuesday night. Greenberg is the newest member of the World Poker Tour’s Champions Club, while Richardson and Kaufman are successful businessmen with tons of high stakes cash game experience.
A different lineup will come together for Wednesday’s “Open House” finale. Phil Hellmuth returns to PokerGO, along with Antonio Esfandiari. Both have been Poker After Dark fixtures for over a decade and are joined by a variety of new school and old school talent.
Mike “The Mouth” Matusow makes his return, along with Matt Berkey. The former, much like Elezra, was a familiar face in early Poker After Dark seasons, while Berkey has competed in some of the world’s biggest cash games since Poker After Dark returned this summer. High Rollers Tom Marchese, Bill Perkins, and Dan Shak round out the seven-handed lineup.
