Ali Imsirovic - PGT Venetian Event #4 winner

New year, same shark. Ali Imsirovic went on a heater in 2021 and obliterated everyone in his path of the PokerGo Tour High Roller circuit. He locked up the 2021 PGT Player of the Year and it wasn't even close. Imsirovic didn't waste any time in the new year before he won another high balla affair. He waited until the final event at the Venetian to step inside the winner's circle.

The PokerGo Tour kicked off 2022 with four High Rollers at the Venetian in Las Vegas. The first two were $10K events and both were won by Thai pro Punnat Punsri. He currently still holds down the top spot in the PGT Leaderboard with 251 points after two victories and two cashes for $251,237 total. Punsri did not cash in the final two events.

On Saturday, the 2022 PGT Venetian Event #3 had a $15,000 buy-in and the event attracted 26 players. Only the top four places earned a piece of the pie. The final four players who cashed included Erik Seidel, Steve Grady, Michael Wang, and Alex Foxen.

Seidel busted in fourth place in Event #3 and min-cashed for $39K. Steve Grady busted in third place for $62,400. His elimination set up a heavyweight bout between Michael Wang and Alex Foxen. The final two chopped the money and left a little on the table for the winner and the title.

When the dust settled, Wang hit the bricks in second place. For his runner-up finish, Wang banked a shade under $135K. Foxen emerged as the victory and won $153,615. He cashed for a second time at the Venetian added 153 points to his Leaderboard total.

On Sunday, the Venetian hosted the fourth and final High Roller. Event #4 $25,000 NL High Roller attracted 20 players and a prize pool worth $500,000. Only the top three places paid out with a hefty slice of the cheesecake set aside to the champion.

Steven Grady cashed for a second-straight event, but he busted in third place and won just $80K. Masashi Oya from Japan cashed in another event, but he could not thwart another victory from Ali Imsirovic. Oya banked $150K for a runner-up finish. Not too shabby, eh?

Imsirovic stepped into the winner's circle once again. The $25K Venetian High Roller paid out $270,000. He earned 162 points on the leaderboard.

After the Venetian High Roller ended, Punsri holds down first place on the PGT Leaderboard with 291 points thanks to back-to-back victories in the first two events. Alex Foxen sits in second, but 60 points behind Punsri. Imsirovic debuted third on the leaderboard with 162 points after his victory in Event #4 $25K. Masashi Oya from Japan is in fourth with 149 points, followed by Erik Seidel in fifth with 145 points. The rest of the top 10 includes Michael Wang, Steve Grady, Cris Brewer, Barry Hutter, and Andrew 'LuckyChewy' Lichtenberger.
