It is going to be another big week on PokerGO's exclusive coverage of the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP). Poker’s biggest party is in full swing now, with multiple events per day to pick from, and the team at PokerGO has selected the very best action for fans at home.
While the Main Event is always the highlight of the WSOP coverage, and PokerGO will have wall-to-wall coverage of “The Big Show” from start to finish at the end of the series, this week could easily be one of the biggest of the whole series.
The week starts with the biggest buy-in game of the entire summer and goes into perhaps the pinnacle of poker excellence, the $50k Poker Players Championship.
That would likely be enough for any week to be notable, but this week will also conclude with three straight days of $10k Championship event coverage. Add in some coverage of the MONSTER STACK game, and it is a week chock-full of poker excitement on the premier broadcaster in the live poker industry.

June 18 – 25 on PokerGO; $50k PPC Among the Highlights
Outside of the concluding weeks of the Main Event, this upcoming week may be the biggest of the whole series.
Opening the week off on Sunday night was the coverage of the endgame of the $250k Super High Roller, which had 69 entries for the biggest single-flight prize pool of the series so far at $17,181,000. The tournament is over, but we will not give away any spoilers here in case you want to watch the final table footage.
The final day of the MONSTER STACK event is another highlight of this week. While the game is not one of the biggest buy-ins of the series, the field was monstrous, with more than 8,300 entries and $11 million in prizes. The final day of that event will play out on Jun 20, and the week will end on three straight days of Championship coverage, including PLO and HORSE.
However, this week’s event stealing the spotlight will undoubtedly be the Poker Players Championship. Many poker professionals consider the three days of action during the event the pinnacle of poker excellence.
Given that players have to master multiple poker formats and then ply their skills against some of the best players in the game’s history, it is little surprise that the PPC bracelet is regarded at least as high as the Main Event.
Fans can watch PPC coverage on PokerGO starting with Day 3 action on Jun 20, with two more days following the game down to the winner. Past event winners read like a whos-who of the poker world, with Dan “Jungleman” Cates as the ruling champion with two straight titles in 2021 and 2022.
Micahel Mizarchi has won it three times and is the only player with the honor, but Brian Rast is in the two-timers club with Cates. Freddy Deeb, Scotty Nguyen, David Bach, and Mike Gorodinsky are among the other winners since David “Chip” Reese won the inaugural running of the PPC in 2006.
After Reese passed away in 2007, the trophy was named in his honor, and ever since, players in the PPC have battled for the “David 'Chip’ Reese Memorial Trophy.”
