Ali Imsirovic in a league of his own

Ali Imsirovic finished the year with 4,364 points, nearly 1,300 points ahead of the competition.

Ali Imsirovic said in the interview:

“It still feels pretty surreal, to be honest. I never thought I would accomplish something of this magnitude in poker. Next, the goal is to just keep trying to get better and solidify and keep proving that I belong here.”

Finishing in second place on the PokerGO Tour leaderboard is Michael Addamo, who also had quite the year to remember. Addamo earned a $100,000 prize for finishing second on the leaderboard.

Sean Perry was Imsirovic’s closest competition for most of 2021 until Addamo made a late surge during the World Series of Poker. Perry ultimately finished third on the leaderboard, picking up $50,000 in prize money.

The inaugural season of the PokerGO Tour saw more than 17,600 entries across 143 tournaments.

Buy-ins ranged from $10,000 up to $300,000, with more than $262,000,000 in prize money awarded. There were 87 unique winners from PokerGO Tour events.
