- The US Poker Open is back up and running for the third time in four years.
- The Open was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

LAS VEGAS - The US Poker Open is back in business now that the COVID-19 pandemic appears to be receding in America.
The tournament has previously taken place in February, but this year’s edition will be held from June 3-June 15.
The US Poker Open is part of the PokerGo Tour, and that means that the event will be streamed on PokerGo for any online gambling fans that wish to follow along.
The event consists of 12 tournaments, through which players accumulate rankings points, with the winner being awarded the US Poker Open Championship, which comes with $50,000.
Previous champions Stephen Chidwick and David Peters took home more than $1 million in total earnings from the Open.
The 12 tournaments are in different formats, with the majority (seven) behind Texas Hold ‘Em, but other formats come into play as well.
For example, one of the tournaments is an eight-game format, and one of them is a short deck format.
Two of the tournaments are Pot-Limit Omaha, and the last is a Big Bet Mix tournament, bringing the total number of formats for the 12 tournaments up to five.
Except for the final event, all events are double re-entry. The final event is single re-entry, and for the largest prize of them all.
The final table of every single one of the tournaments will be streamed on PokerGo.com, and the event will be broadcast from the PokerGO Studio in ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Online gambling fans can follow along with this unique, multi format poker event via watching the final tables at PokerGo.com, or via the coverage on the USPO's website.
