The New Year poker doldrums are coming to an end and the 2022 tournament schedule is about to heat up. A wave of big-time tournament series are on the immediate horizon and with them, some of the best players on the planet will be getting back to work, hoping to start the year off on the right foot. Upcoming events include the World Poker Tour Lucky Hearts Poker Open at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, Florida, the Los Angeles Poker Classic held at the Commerce Casino in Los Angeles, and the return of the PokerGO Cup at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. All of these series are sure to draw big fields and massive prize pools. Over on PocketFives Staking, some of those players are giving fans a shot at jumping in on the action by offering shares of their upcoming tournaments. So, if you are looking to add some excitement while following the results, check out some of our upcoming featured events. WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open Main Event This tournament - this entire series actually - is going to be a blowout. Poker in Florida has seemingly been unimpacted by current conditions and last year the LHPO Main Event turned into one of the biggest live fields in WPT history. In addition to Daniel Weinman and Josh Arieh having offered action (both are currently sold out), two-time WPT champion Sam Panzica opened up just a few shares in a special “for the fans” offering. https://twitter.com/PocketFives/status/1483933546137985025?s=20 Additionally, WPT Instructor Katie Stone is headed to the East Coast and will be playing in a number of side events (many of which have sold out) and the Main Event. The Main Event kicks off on Friday, January 21. LHPO $25K High Roller Arieh may be sold out of his Main Event, but the reigning 2021 WSOP Player of the Year is also going to be firing in the $25,500 NLHE High Roller on January 24. Plus, there’s minimal markup for the four-time bracelet winner on this one. Joining Arieh is German high-stakes savant Rainer Kempe who is offering action in the NLHE High Roller as well. Kempe's resume is a long one and includes a win in the 2016 Super High Roller Bowl for $5 million and more than $27 million in career earnings. By all accounts, he is one of the most respected players in the game. https://twitter.com/PocketFives/status/1483928956642361344?s=20 PokerGO Cup - Feb 2-10 The PokerGO Cup returns to the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas (and the PokerGO Studio) in the first week of February and four-time WPT champion Darren Elias has his sights set on playing nearly every No Limit Hold’em event on the schedule. https://twitter.com/PocketFives/status/1483937330247487493?s=20 Elias has packages available for two $25K’s, the $50K, and the $100K event. Elias is coming off a 2021 in which he won an Aria $10K High Roller for $169,600 and also had two runner-up high roller finishes for a total of nearly $825,000 and he's gearing up for a big year in 2022. READ: For Darren Elias The Motivation and Pressure To Execute Is All Self Imposed The PokerGO Cup is one of the most sweatable series in the immediate future with every final table being broadcast on the platform. Looking for more? There’s low-stakes action available for the upcoming LAPC and the return of the Wynn Millions series in March. Check out all of the upcoming action over at PocketFives Staking.
