Jonathan Little Wins PokerGO Cup Event #3: $10,100 NLHE ($229,500)

Poker pro and popular coach Jonathan Little emerged victorious in the star-studded final table of PokerGO Cup Event #3: $10,100 No-Limit Hold’em, bagging a $229,500 money prize. This win marks Little’s first-ever PokerGO title, adding another trophy to his illustrious career.

Jonathan Little, a best-selling poker author, has now amassed an impressive $8.4 million in tournament winnings, according to the Hendon Mob. But the journey to victory was not an easy one.

Little began the final day in the middle of the pack, and after the first three exits, he took the charge and personally accounted for the next three eliminations, including poker superstar Alex Foxen in a heads-up.

It was a good start in 2024 for Little, with four cashes in PGT tournaments, including two in the PokerGO Cup events. His latest triumph in Event #3, coupled with a seventh-place finish in the first event won by David Peters, has propelled him to an early lead in the PokerGO Cup leaderboard, and he is now in prime position to secure the $25,000 PGT Passport.

2024 PokerGO Cup Event #3: $10,100 NLHE Final Table Action

Event #3 attracted 85 entries, creating a prize pool of $850,000. The final day commenced with seven players, with Jesse Lonis leading the pack, closely followed by Alex Foxen and Daniel Negreanu.

The day was marked by intense action, with several short stack players, including Brock Wilson, Dan Shak, and Daniel Weinand, making moves to stay in the game, including several double-ups. Daniel Negreanu’s day, however, started on a sour note. He was the first to leave the final table after his pocket fives were outflopped by Foxen’s Q10 on an 8104 flop.

Daniel Negreanu was first to exit

After a series of double-ups, Brock Wilson ultimately finished in sixth place, earning $42,500. His Q10 fell short against Shak’s 55 despite a glimmer of hope on the J turn.

One of the day’s most thrilling hands unfolded between Daniel Weinand and Alex Foxen. Holding 96, Weinand faced Foxen’s pocket Queens. The flop of 422 led to a check-call from Weinand. The 7 turn saw Weinand check-raise Foxen’s flush draw. Foxen’s all-in move forced Weinand, pot-committed, to call, but the river brought no help, eliminating Weinand in fifth place with a $59,500 prize.

With four players left, Jonathan Little was initially the shortest stack but quickly changed his fortunes. He doubled up against Lonis’ A-J with K-Q, leaving Lonis with a mere four big blinds, which he soon lost. It was anybody’s game with three players left, as everyone had similar stack sizes. Little’s aggressive play whittled down Shak’s chips before Foxen left Shak crippled. Little then eliminated Shak, setting the stage for the heads-up battle with Foxen.

Little entered the heads-up with a 42-big-blind stack against Foxen’s 28 blinds. Although Foxen initially caught up and even took the lead, Little swiftly regained control, notably with an ace-six preflop all-in that trumped Foxen’s king-jack.

The tournament concluded with Little’s all-in push with king-ten against Foxen’s king-deuce. The much-needed two for Foxen never materialized, sealing Little’s victory and his first-ever PokerGO title win. Foxen, displaying remarkable skill throughout the event, secured second place and a prize of $148,750.
