High-stakes tournament series world leaders

Poker Central and ARIA have positioned themselves as the high-stakes tournament series world leaders over the past three years, also hosting the annual Super High Roller Bowl and launching the Poker Masters in 2017.

“The U.S. Poker Open is our newest marquee tournament positioned to kick off the high-stakes tournament calendar,” said Poker Central president Joe Kakaty. “Our lineup of quarterly majors give PokerGO subscribers year-round access to some of the best high-stakes poker in the world.”

Additionally, ARIA director of poker operations Sean McCormack said the U.S. Poker Open and the entire new year is shaping up to be an exciting one.

“We host some of poker’s top high-stakes tournaments at ARIA and are looking forward to kicking off the 2018 poker season with the U.S. Poker Open,” he said. “Poker Central has quickly built a tremendous schedule of poker events that are bringing worldwide awareness and excitement to the industry.”

The ultimate destination for fans of poker

Poker Central calls itself the ultimate destination for fans of poker. In fact, its PokerGO subscription-based content service live streams the high-stakes series from ARIA, in addition to World Series of Poker events and World Poker Tour final tables.

ARIA Resort & Casino features a 24-table poker room hosting a variety of cash games and tournaments. In fact, the room is currently gearing up for the 2017 Fall Poker Classic running Nov. 26 to Dec. 3 with tournament buy-ins ranging from $240 to $470.
