The final event of the 2023 PokerGO Cup wrapped up with Event #8: $50,000 No-Limit Hold’em and saw Isaac Haxton defeating heads-up opponent Cary Katz to win $598,000 and deny Katz the victory. However, the runner-up finish still gave the PokerGO founder enough points to squeak past Anthony Hu to win the overall PokerGO Cup race, in addition to the $364,000 tournament payout.
Katz and fellow final tablists Dan Colpoys and Sean Winter all had shots at winning the overall PokerGO Cup. But it was Haxton who topped them all in the final event for his only cash of the series to add to his $30 million in Hendon Mob-reported earnings, while Katz takes home the $50,000 bonus prize and the magnificent silver trophy.
Katz joins previous PokerGO Cup champions Daniel Negreanu (2021) and Jeremy Ausmus (2022) and is already well on his way to qualifying into the PokerGO Championship Million Dollar Freeroll at the end of the PGT Season.
