The PokerGO Cup series first debuted in July of 2021. There have now been four iterations of the festival, with $31.2 million in total prize money awarded along the way. While 2024 series champion Jonathan Little racked up $730,350 across four cashes this year, he fell just short of making the top 10 on the series’ all-time earnings leaderboard (according to PokerGO Tour official stats).

There are eight players who have accumulated over a million in series earnings, including the other three series champions. Chief among them is PokerGO founder and 2023 PokerGO Cup champion Cary Katz with nearly $2.5 million in earnings.

Katz has 14 total cashes and two titles at this stop over the years. He made the money in five of the eight events on the schedule during his win last year, accumulating $655,800 during that series alone. Katz’s largest score at this stop came when he took down the $100,000 buy-in finale in 2021, earning $1,058,000 as the champion.

Daniel Negreanu sits in second place on this leaderboard with more than $1.7 million in earnings. Like Katz, Negreanu has two event wins and one series championship under his belt, having won the inaugural running back in 2021. On his way to hoisting the cup that year Negreanu recorded four cashes for $994,200, including taking down the $50,000 buy-in event for $700,000.

The third PokerGO Cup champion represented on this list is Jeremy Ausmus, who ended the 2022 festival atop the series standings. Ausmus made four final tables, recording two third-place showings, a runner-up finish, and one outright victory along the way. All told, he cashed for $824,500 before the festival concluded. ♠
