Lautaro Guerra Cabrerizo Wins PGT PLO Main Event and Overall Championship 21 Mar

What an incredible week for Lautaro Guerra Cebrerizo, who won three PokerGO Tour PL Omaha events in just a few days, including the inaugural $25,000 PLO Championship which brought him the first-ever PLO series title.

The Spaniard dominated the series with three victories and whooping $1,067,150 in prize money. On Friday he won $10,000 event for $220,400, next day he shipped $15,000 Bounty tournament for $228,000 plus $75,000 in bounties. And to top if off, he finished the series with $25,000 championship win among 83-player field and took home $518,750.

PL Omaha specialist had more than twice as many points as the next contender in Jim Collopy on PGT PLO Series leaderboard, which earned him additional $25,000 bonus and a PGT series trophy.

Cabrerizo got into poker 12 years ago and is now playing mostly high stakes cash game online games. As most of the players, he first started with No Limit Hold’em but later progressed into Pot Limit Omaha. And everyone knows, once you get into PLO, you can never go back to playing two cards.

With a PGT PLO series win, Cabrerizo moved into first place on 2023 PGT leaderboard, surpassing 2023 PokerGO champion Cary Katz. PokerGO Tour continues with fifth installment of the U.S. Poker Open that will run from March 23 to April 4, 2023.
