It is hard to believe we are already six weeks into the tournament poker calendar circa 2024, but the action has been frantic on the PokerGO Tour. Events are already in the books on that circuit, with one player in particular dominating the initial action. Just as important, however, is the achievement of another player who has ensconced themselves in the Top Ten and made history on the PGT Championship leaderboard.

Coleman Rips Out to Lead, Foxen Makes History

The early season actions of David Coleman have been stunning. In just January and half of February, Coleman has already racked up six final table finishes on the PGT, which has conducted three festivals (the PGT Last Chance, the PGT Kickoff, and the PokerGO Cup). In those festivals, Coleman has won three events, was runner-up in another, and has accumulated $641,700 in prize money to date. Most important, however, is the 937 points he has accumulated, far outpacing the rest of the field.

History is made in the person who holds the second place slot. Kristen Foxen has gotten off to a red-hot start to 2024, earning eight cashes with four final tables and a victory. This makes her the first woman to make an entry into the Top Ten on the PGT Championship leaderboard, earning her 666 points and $451,425 in earnings so far in 2024. Making Foxen’s achievement more significant is that she is one of only two women (Victoria Livschitz in 47th place) who are in the Top Fifty on the PGT ladder.

The winner of the overall PokerGO Cup championship was Jonathan Little, and that performance was good enough to push him to third place on the countdown. Little has scored six cashes so far in 2024, but it was the two victories in the PokerGO Cup that solidified his place on the leaderboard. As of today, Little has racked up 549 points towards the PGT Championship and has $730,350 in earnings.

Here are the players who are in the Top Ten on the PokerGO Tour Championship leaderboard as of February 15:

1. David Coleman, 937 points
2. Kristen Foxen, 666
3. Jonathan Little, 549
4. Dylan Weisman, 505
5. David Peters, 457
6. Aram Zobian, 432
7. Justin Zaki, 405
8. Stephen Chidwick, 284
9. Seth Davies, 277
10. Daniel Negreanu, 269

Non-Texas Hold’em Game on Tap for March

The PGT has been on a break since concluding the PokerGO Cup, but they will kick back into action with a frenzy of non-Texas Hold’em related tournaments over the next six weeks.

Up next for the “High Rollers” will be the PGT Mixed Games, a series of mixed game tournaments that runs from February 28 to March 8. Several disciplines of poker will be tested here, including H.O.R.S.E., a Dealer’s Choice event, and eight- and ten-game mixed formats. This schedule brings out the crème of the poker-playing community, as the ability to play multiple games is recognized as a critical part of an all-around player’s game.

On March 20, the PGT PLO Series will get underway for the Omaholics in the crowd. Bounty events and a unique PLO Dealer’s Choice tournament will lead up to the $25,000 Pot Limit Omaha Championship, which will conclude on March 29. As with the Mixed Games schedule, this tournament will also award points towards a Player of the Series championship and those all-important PGT Championship points.

All the action of the PGT streams at, and it should be catnip for those who look for more in the game than just two pocket cards and a community board. Check out the PGT website for more information.
