Martirosian Nabs Two Titles

The Last Chance series consisted of five $10,000 buy-in events and kicked off with Daniel Negreanu winning his first tournament of the year as he rebounds off a $2.2 million loss in 2023.

The next winner was Artur Martirosian, who took down Event #2: $10,100 No-Limit Hold'em for $211,200 less than a month after final tabling the WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas.

It wouldn't be the high-stakes Russian pro's last victory as he later got through a field of 79 runners in Event #5 to win $197,500 as he defeated heads-up opponent Sam Soverel.

Connecticut pro Dylan Destefano picked up a win in Event #4 for $195,000 for not only his first PokerGO title, but also his first-ever live tournament victory as he adds to his $1.4 million in live earnings.

Another up-and-coming high-stakes pro, Samuel Laskowitz took down Event #3 for $205,000 and his first PokerGo title just a few weeks after taking down an NAPT Las Vegas High Roller for $180,850.

Things wrapped up with Nick Schulman defeated Chino Rheem in Event #6 after the two struck a deal that had Schulman earning $161,500 and Rheem getting $170,300. The two flipped for the trophy and Schulman came out of top for his fourth PokerGO Studio title.
