Ali Imsirovic Finishes 2021 Atop PokerGO Tour Presented By Guaranteed Rate Leaderboard
The inaugural season of the PokerGO Tour presented by Guaranteed Rate is in the books. After 143 tournaments with buy-ins ranging from $10,000 to $300,000, 17,674 total entries, and more than $262,000,000 in prize money awarded, Ali Imsirovic was crowned the PokerGO Tour presented by Guaranteed Rate Player of the Year.
Imsirovic had a tremendous year on the PGT, cashing 34 times and securing 14 victories. He won more than $6,000,000 in prize money from those finishes, allowing him to add another $200,000 for winning the Player of the Year’s top prize. Imsirovic finished with 4,364 points, which was nearly 1,300 points ahead of his closest competitor. Imsirovic also took home the Guaranteed Rate Cup to add to his packed trophy case.
“It still feels pretty surreal, to be honest,” Imsirovic told PokerGO. “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.”
Along the way to winning the PGT presented by Guaranteed Rate Player of the Year title, Imsirovic picked up 23 six-figure cashes in PokerGO Tour events. His largest score of the year came in November when he won the $25,500 NL Hold’em High Roller at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, for $695,355. That final victory all but locked in Imsirovic at the top of the leaderboard even though there was a month left in the season, further showcasing just how much he dominated the tour in its first year.
Michael Addamo finished second on the leaderboard and earned a $100,000 prize. Sean Perry placed third and picked up $50,000.
