There are 12 events in this year’s US Poker Open, with buy-ins ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. The Golden Eagle and a $50,000 bonus are awarded to the series’ overall champion.
The majority of the tournaments will be No Limit Hold’em, but there will also be Pot Limit Omaha and Mixed Game tournaments.
On March 27, the series comes to a finale with a $50,000 NLHE tournament, which is expected to attract some major names. On PokerGO, all tournaments are broadcast live for poker aficionados.
Except for the $50,000 championship, all tournaments allow for two re-entries. Only one re-entry is permitted in that tournament.
