Last week the poker world was munching popcorn once again as two famous high rollers went at each other on the social media network formerly known as Twitter. This latest headline making spat involved Matt Berkey and Daniel Negreanu, who took issue with comments that Berkey made about Jonathan Little. As well as being high stakes players, both Berkey and Little run poker training sites and it is not uncommon for training site owners to have digs at their rivals. Berkey, known for his poker training brand Solve for Why, made critical comments directed at PokerCoaching boss Little. Little had commented that he often passes up thin edges, a strategy which Berkey derided.

Little, who is known for his mild manner and steady temperament, is not one to get involved in Twitter wars and was too busy getting the lot at the PokerGo Cup series to get involved. It was Negreanu who jumped to his defence on the socials, with the argument between them spiralling way beyond the trigger topic of Jonathan Little.  

Little Lets His Poker Do The Talking

Meanwhile, at the PokerGO Cup series, which ran at the PokerGo Studios at Aria, Las Vegas from January 25th to February 3rd, 2024, Jonathan Little emerged as the standout player of the series, securing the championship title with two notable victories, including a win in the $25K final (Event #8) for $453,750. His other victory came in event Event #3, ($10,100 NL Hold'em) for which he claimed $229,500.

David Peters, who also secured two wins in the series, took down the opening event for $141,525. He captured his second PGT title in Event #7 ($15,100 No-Limit Hold'em), taking home $315,000.

Little Wins Series Leaderboard

With both Little and Peters taking two titles each, the player of the series leaderboard was inevitably going to be won by one of them. In securing his second victory Little also ensured he topped the table. The final leaderboard standings reflected the competitive nature of the series, with Jonathan Little leading with 549 points, followed by David Peters with 457 points, and Justin Zaki in third with 405 points. Little received a $25,000 PGT Passport for his leaderboard victory, underscoring his dominant performance throughout the series.
