Daniel Maor crowned the winner of BetMGM Poker Championship

The BetMGM Poker Championship at Las Vegas ARIA Resort & Casino was won by Daniel Maor, who defeated 1,141 other poker players in a fierce competition. The participants included both fresh faces and seasoned ones. 

The ARIA Resort & Casino in Las Vegas served as the venue for the event. The PokerGo Studio at ARIA arranged live streaming of the poke game when the seven players who defeated the remainder remained to attempt their luck at the final table.

After eliminating four of the last five opponents, Maor went into heads-up play versus Shannon Shorr ahead of the chip lead. Maor managed to walk off with a sum of $613,914, the ultimate winner’s booty. This was more than his prior earnings, which touched the figure of $101,000. His total poker career earnings rose to $465,659 with his latest picks.

According to Maor, there have been many times when he has managed to arrive at the final table, but this is where his lucky streak would invariably part ways with him. In his opinion, having won this prestigious event more than makes up for all of his previous losses. He was particularly attracted to this event as it came with a $3,500 buy-in and a $3 million guarantee to boot. Supposedly, Aria was also his favorite venue for poker playing. 

The 2024 ARIAPoker Classic, a BetMGM-organized event, featured a six-day play that concluded with massive figures. The participants included 150 BetMGM online players who had qualified, as well as a prize pool totaling $3.6 million. In 2022, the event was able to rope in 343 players, with a prize pool consisting of $1.1 million. 

The BetMGM Poker Championship is one of the most prestigious events for poker enthusiasts, and they wait eagerly every year to try their hand at the big-time poker game.
