StormX to stage first invitational tournament with PokerGO

Crypto cashback provider StormX will host its first invitational poker tournament at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas on March 3.

The tournament is expected to have a prize pool of $500,000 and it will feature a range of professional poker players, cryptocurrency founders, influencers and several NBA players.

Some of the names attending include NASCAR driver Landon Cassill, NBA stars Paul Pierce and Michael Carter-Williams, and decorated poker pros Tom Dwan and Maria Ho.

The tournament, which is the first between StormX and PokerGO, will be live-streamed on YouTube, Twitter and other social media platforms.

So far, 81 entrants are registered with a buy-in of $5,000. One rebuy is allowed per player, meaning the prize pool is expected to exceed $500,000.

“We’re excited to host the first of many events that bring together a wide range of entrepreneurs, investors, poker pros, and celebrities to create an enjoyable event that will be streamed globally,” said Simon Yu, CEO and Co-Founder of StormX.

StormX has been named as the official cryptocurrency partner of PokerGO in a deal that will see it receive branding and commercial involvements over several years.
