Welcome to the ARIA Resort & Casino and the PokerGO Studio for the 2019 U.S. Poker Open and Event #3 – $10,000 Short Deck Poker.
In 2018, the U.S. Poker Open was a new event added to the string of Poker Central high roller tournaments and the eight events on the schedule saw the likes of Justin Bonomo, Mike Gorodinsky, Stephen Chidwick, Ben Tollerene, Benjamin Pollak, David Peters, and Keith Tilston capture victories over the course of 11 days. On the back of back-to-back victories in Event 3 and Event 4, along with two other final tables, Chidwick would be crowned the U.S. Poker Open Champion after amassing $1,256,650 in earnings.
Chidwick has kicked off this year’s U.S. Poker Open by winning Event #1 – $10,000 No Limit Hold’em for $216,000 after defeating Sean Winter heads-up and is now chip leader at the final table of Event #3 – $10,000 No Limit Hold’em where Winter is also appearing at. Both players are currently chasing Jordan Cristos who sits atop the U.S. Poker Open leaderboard, and depending on their finishes, can move into first or second outright.
