HIGH STAKES Isaac Haxton won the PokerGo Cup’s most costly event.
The American had a difficult time at the final table, as is seen here with hole cards.
This past Saturday, the final of the eight events set for the first stage of the PokerGo Cup 2023 concluded, and the renowned Isaac Haxton was able to win the trophy and the series’ largest prize.
Cary Katz was awarded an additional $50,000 since he maintained his position in this series’ rankings.
On the second and last day of play, the American finished second in chips. After many hours of intense competition, Isaac went heads-up with Cary Katz, whom he overcame to earn $598,000. The runner-up had to settle for $364,000. Sean Winter completed the podium with a total of $208,000.
“It was an epic battle. During the previous seven tournaments, I was unable to cash, but with this ITM, I am satisfied with my experience and want to return for the next edition.” The champion emphasized.
Haxton is a living poker legend and one of the most renowned players in the worldwide poker community. His accomplishments and track record on poker felts throughout the globe, totaling just over $28 million in live poker profits, inspired partypoker to sign him as a member of its team of pros. He wore the room’s patch for four years, until the beginning of 2022, when the contract was terminated.
