Las Vegas hosts the PGT Championship, the final big live poker tournament of 2022. This event determines the ranking for this year’s PokerGO Tour, with the top 21 players competing in a winner-take-all format. A trivial sum of $500,000
On the opening day of the competition, which took place this past Wednesday (21), numerous stars displayed their skills at the tables. As promised by the organization, the tournament was halted when just six competitors remained. Jason Koon, the ace, is leading the 6-handed final.

The gamer has amassed an enormous stack of 1,829,000 chips and has no one in his rearview mirror. In order to give you an idea, if you total up the stacks of Koon’s five opponents, he has a significant edge of 152.5 big blinds.
Chad Eveslage, who amassed 347,000 chips, is the player “closest” to Jason. Sean Winter (322,000), Nick Petrangelo (285,000), Benny Glaser (283,000), and Stephen Chidwick remain in contention (152,000).
This Thursday, the PGT Championship decision will begin at 17:00 GMT and will be televised live on PokerGO (22). The blinds revert to 6,000 / 12,000 with an ante for the large blind. Keep in mind that only the winner will go away with $500,000.
