Home » Alex Livingston Closes Out PGT Mixed Games Series; Four Final Tables For Negreanu
PGT Mixed Games Festival

The latest PokerGO Tour (PGT) series wrapped up this week with the completion of PGT Mixed Games 2024, a series that ran Feb. 28-March 8 and consisted of various mixed game events with buy-ins ranging from $5,100 to $25,300.

While he didn’t take home any trophies, the true dominator of the high-stakes mixed game series was Daniel Negreanu, who made four final tables including a runner-up finish in the $10,200 Dealer’s Choice event for $103,400 (which PokerNews recapped here) and a third-place finish in the $10,200 Big Bet Mix event for $55,000.

Negreanu promised quality over quantity in the new year after losing over $2 million in poker tournaments in 2023, and he is certainly delivering.

Negreanu’s fourth final table of the PGT Mixed Game series came in Event #8: $10,200 Big Bet Mix, which drew 37 runners, including known mixed game crushers like Chad Eveslage, Adam Friedman, Benny Glaser and Jason Mercier.

Despite having a final table chip lead, Negreanu fell in third to make way for a heads-up battle between Dan Shak and Jeremy Ausmus that saw the investor defeat the six-time bracelet winner for $133,200 and his first PGT victory.
