The U.S. Poker Open is a series of high-stakes poker tournaments. Created in 2018, it takes place at the Aria Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The series is sponsored by Poker Central and all final tables are streamed live on PokerGo. In addition to the Main Event, the player who accumulates the most points during the series wins $100,000.[1]

The debut season took place with eight events in February 2018. Keith Tilston won the $50,000 Main Event, while Stephen Chidwick earned series champion honors by winning two events and making five final tables.[2] For the second season in February 2019, the buy-in for the Main Event was increased to $100,000 and a Short Deck variant was added to the schedule.[3]
