Daniel Negreanu Triumphs in Event #3 at the 2024 PT PLO Series for Second PGT Trophy of the Year

The poker world watched in anticipation as Daniel Negreanu clinched his second title of the 2024 PGT season at the PokerGO Studio, ARIA Resort & Casino. The 2024 PT PLO Series continued its thrilling action with Event #3: $5,100 Pot-Limit Omaha, drawing a competitive field of 118 entrants and generating a hefty prize pool of $590,000.

From the onset, the event promised intense competition and significant payouts, with the final six finishers each guaranteed at least $29,500. Notables among the cashers were Ian Matakis (17th), Alex Condon (16th), Dominique Mosley (15th), and Lautaro Guerra (12th), showcasing the depth of talent present.

A Strategic Victory

Negreanu’s journey to the top was marked by strategic brilliance and steady play, culminating in a heads-up victory against Anuj Agarwal. This win not only secured him the $147,500 first-place prize but also marked his first title of the series and eighth final table appearance in the 2024 PGT Series. Following a reflective 2023, Negreanu’s “quality over quantity” approach to 2024 seems to be reaping rewards, with his lifetime earnings soaring to an impressive $52,415,149, placing him seventh on poker’s all-time money list.

Highlights of the Final Table

Lance Patel was the first to exit, finishing in sixth place, while Curtis Muller‘s fourth-place finish after a series of early doubles and a critical hand against Agarwal highlighted the unpredictable nature of the game.

Dylan Weisman‘s early departure was a shock to many, given his expertise in Pot-Limit Omaha, underscoring the high caliber of competition. Bruno Furth’s battle with Negreanu in the late stages of the tournament demonstrated the high stakes and fine margins that define elite poker.

The Decisive Heads-Up

Negreanu started heads-up play with a little more than a 2-1 chip lead over Agarwal, who did eventuly take the lead, but it was short-lived as Negreanu mounted a late comeback, eventually securing the victory with an ace-high flush, leaving Agarwal in second place with a commendable $95,000 prize.

This event further cements Negreanu’s status as a poker legend and highlights the competitive spirit and skill level required to excel in the Pot-Limit Omaha format. As the PGT season progresses, all eyes will be on these talented players, who continue to set new benchmarks in the world of poker.
