Sean Winter entered the final table of the first event of the PokerGO Cup as the short stack, holding just seven big blinds when cards got into the air. The 32-year-old high roller rallied back at a stacked final table that was loaded with some of the top players in poker to win the top prize of $216,000, and in the process increased his career tournament earnings to an impressive $23.3 million.
Winter is no stranger to success at the PokerGO Studio at Aria in Las Vegas. The Jacksonville, Florida native won back-to-back events in March of 2022 to win the U.S. Poker Championship, and then followed it up in October with the Purple Jacket at the Poker Masters.
This opening event of the PokerGO Cup series played out over two days and featured a $10,000 buy-in. The event drew a field of 90 entrants, with the final 13 players made the money, splitting up the $900,000 prize pool.
