Max Hoffman Is The PokerGO Mixed Series Champion

After cashing in half of the events offered, Max Hoffman emerged as the third-ever champion of the PokerGO Mixed Games Series, amassing a total of $376,300 in prize money. This feat enabled him to surpass the defending series champion Dan Zack and claim both the trophy and a $10,000 leaderboard bonus. Hoffman, hailing from Massachusetts, embarked on his victorious journey a week and a half prior, with a notable fifth-place finish in the $5,000 8-Game event, pocketing $31,150. His momentum continued with consecutive runner-up placements in the $10,000 Triple Stud Mix and the $10,000 Triple Draw Mix, bringing in $100,800 and $103,400, respectively.

Hoffman’s streak of successes didn’t stop there; he secured a sixth-place finish in the $10,000 Dealer’s Choice, adding another $28,200 to his winnings. His series culminated in a career-high fourth-place finish in the $25,000 10-Game Championship, where he earned $112,750. Now boasting $580,000 in earnings, over two-thirds of which stemmed from the Mixed Games Series, Hoffman has solidified his standing in the poker world. Despite the high stakes in the finale, he faced stiff competition from Dan Zack, a three-time bracelet winner who needed at least a runner-up finish to retain his title but ultimately fell short, finishing third for $153,750.

The 10-Game Championship also spotlighted Alex Livingston and Dylan Weisman, with Livingston ultimately seizing the title in a thrilling final round of no-limit 2-7 single draw against Weisman. Livingston walked away with $324,465, marking the fourth largest win of his career and elevating his total career earnings to $8.5 million. Weisman, known for his previous victories in the PokerGO studio, has also made significant strides this year, securing two wins and climbing to 20th in the Card Player Player of the Year rankings with 1,502 points.

In addition to Hoffman and Livingston’s successes, Walter Chambers also made headlines by winning the final event of the series, the $5,000 No-Limit 2-7 Single Draw, after finishing sixth in the championship. Chambers, a Louisiana mixed-games specialist, showcased his skill and determination by claiming the title and $63,000, marking his third consecutive cash in the series. This victory adds to Chambers’ reputable career, highlighted by a win at the WSOP Circuit Championship in 2005 for $787,340.

The PokerGO Mixed Games Series not only celebrated the achievements of these distinguished players but also set the stage for the upcoming PLO Series and the U.S. Poker Open, promising more thrilling action in the poker world.
