The PokerGO Tour (PGT) has become tremendously popular and is one of the most prominent poker series in the international circuit. They have events like Super High Roller Bowl and Poker Masters attracting top talent from the poker circuit. Quite a few players like Stephen Chidwick, Alex Foxen, Sean Winter, Cary Katz have developed a special liking for PGT events where they have shined and made their money. Let’s have a look at all the players who have recorded the most cashes in the tournament series.
Stephen Chidwick is one of the most successful players in PGT events, with the English poker pro registering 58 cashes so far. He has accumulated over $9,979,404 in live earnings from PGT events and sits third on the All Time Money List while holding the first spot in England’s All Time Money List. His latest win during the time of writing saw him win the PGT Poker Masters 2023 No Limit Hold’em – Poker Masters #8 and pocket $400,000. He eventually became the Poker Masters 2023 champion and winner of the coveted Purple Jacket.
Alex Foxen occupies the second spot on the PGT highest number of cashes, boasting a total earnings of $10,431,610 in PGT. He managed multiple top 10 finishes recently in the PokerGO Tour – 2023 PGT PLO Series, as well as the PokerGO Tour – 2023 U.S. Poker Open, which took place earlier this year. With 57 cashes so far, just a few good performances separate Foxen from table leader Chidwick. Citing the number of events also lined up, it would be interesting to see if he can claim the number one spot in 2023.
Foxen has some serious competition in the form of Cary Katz, with the American pro recording 55 cashes in PGT events as of September 2023.

Ali Imsirovic also finds himself in the highly competitive race of recording the most number of cashes in PGT events. So far the Bosnia and Herzegovina-born poker player has recorded 55 cashes so far and registered $9,641,477 in earnings. With multiple tournament series lined up, it would be interesting to see if he can do better than Katz and move closer to the likes of Foxen and Chidwick this year.
