PGT Last Chance Series 2024: Daniel Negreanu Ships Event 1


The PokerGO Tour’s final series of the season kicked off today at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas. The PGT Last Chance series runs from January 2-7, 2024, with six single-day tournaments. The series is the final opportunity for players to earn PGT points and finish in the top 40 on the PGT leaderboard to qualify for the season-ending PGT Championship $1,000,000 Freeroll.

Finishing in the top 40 will guarantee players a seat in the PGT Championship $1,000,000 Freeroll, but during PGT Last Chance there will be two Dream Seats awarded to the two highest-ranked players on the series leaderboard who aren’t already qualified for the PGT Championship. The two players awarded the final two Dream Seats will receive direct entry into the PGT Championship on January 9-10, 2024

Several of the game’s top tournament players are just outside of the PGT leaderboard top 40 and looking to move up the rankings, including Chino Rheem (43rd), Andrew Lichtenberger (45th), Dan Smith (47th), Alex Livingston (49th), Justin Bonomo (54th), and Brian Rast (55th). Jason Koon (33rd), Daniel Negreanu (35th), Adam Hendrix (38th), and others will be competing to maintain their positions within the top 40 of the leaderboard.

Additionally, the PGT Last Chance series is the final opportunity for players to earn points in the race to become PGT Player of the Year and win a $50,000 bonus. Entering the series, Isaac Haxton is the leaderboard frontrunner with 2,662 points. 

Final tables of every PGT Last Chance event will be livestreamed on PokerGO starting in the evening when the final table is reached.

With the win, Negreanu jumped from 35th to 16th on the PGT leaderboard and is firmly in position to qualify for the season-ending PGT Championship $1,000,000 freeroll.
