Nick Petrangelo's heater continues at PokerGO Cup

8 February 2022

Nick Petrangelo’s run of success on the PokerGO Tour continued on Monday with a victory in Event #5: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em from the 2022 PokerGO Cup. Petrangelo topped the 41-entry field to win $369,000 in prize money.

Petrangelo had a tremendous Stairway To Millions series in January, cashing four times for more than $1,800,000 combined including two wins. He’s now the first player to earn more than 1,000 points on the 2022 PGT leaderboard. Petrangelo came into Event #5 of the PokerGO Cup with 845 PGT leaderboard points. He added 221 with Monday’s victory to push his total to 1,066.

“Everything has been going really well since even, like, September,” Petrangelo said. “A little up and down, but yeah, since then pretty much everything has been working out. I’m running great, winning all-ins, and getting hands at the right times. Sometimes you get around the bubble when you have a lot of chips and you lose a couple of hands, but it’s been the opposite for me when I go deep and everything just goes well.”

Since September 2021, Petrangelo has won nearly $5,600,000 in live tournaments. He has two scores of more than $1,000,000, five wins, and has reached heads-up play nine times.

“Sometimes when everything is going all in your favor you think every hero call is going to be right, every big bluff is going to get through, and you can get a little out of hand – a little bit of ‘winner’s bias,’ I guess,” Petrangelo said. “It’s important to stay focused and just try to play well.”

After Monday’s win inside the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas, many of the players competing on Day 1 of Event #6: $25,000 No-Limit Hold’em took time to congratulate Petrangelo on the win. According to Petrangelo, it’s the respect of his peers, the ones competing day in and day out in high-stakes PGT events, that means the most.

“It’s great,” Petrangelo said. “I’ve always said the biggest metric for us is how the community perceives you, not necessarily your results. We have a great community here with all the guys that play these things all the time. It’s awesome, it’s like a home game. We all like each other. It’s kind of like being co-workers at this point. No one wishes anyone bad luck. Everyone is rooting for everybody. Certain guys go on heaters, and you’re just the guy at that point.”
