The great game of Pot Limit Omaha comes live to Poker After Dark for the first time at the ARIA Resort & Casino this Tuesday with an all-star lineup and a six-figure buy-in. But it’s not the first time four-card action is spread on PokerGO – three World Series of Poker Omaha bracelets are available under Event Replays.

David Tuchman and Doug Polk introduced the event for Lon McEachern, David Williams and Mike Gorodinsky to call the PLO Championship Final Table action. Tommy Le won his first bracelet for $938,732 and cemented his reputation as one of the top Omaha tournament players in an event that drew 428 of the world’s best players. Scott Clements began the final table as chip leader with Jason DeWitt and Eoghan O’Dea at the table.
Le has 20 WSOP cashes, 11 of them in Pot Limit Omaha, and in the last two years he earned over $2 million if four of the toughest Omaha fields alone: the $10,000 PLO Championship and the $25,000 PLO High Roller.
Clements is known as one of the better Omaha players with two bracelets in Omaha Hi-Lo and 11 WSOP final tables. The top seven players cashed for six-figures out of a $4 million prize pool.

David Tuchman and Jonathan Little were at the Anchor’s Desk for a six-hour final table called by the familiar duo Lon McEachern and Norman Chad and joined by PLO disciple Joey Ingram. Luis Calvo came out of nowhere to win his first bracelet for $362,185 in just his third WSOP cash.
The event drew 630 entries for a $1.7 million prize pool that paid out the top 95 finishers. The final table included runner-up Rudolph Sawa that cashed for his first time and then went on to finish in the top 400 of the Main Event, Irish pro Mark Reilly, Bay area player Eric Hicks that locked up his first Omaha cash and Russian Aleksei Altshuller – who cashed in three different Omaha events in his first WSOP.

Three days wasn’t enough to fit in all the action for the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo Championship when Abe Mossei and Daniel Negreanu hit the hard stop at the final table. Originally, the event wasn’t scheduled to be aired but Negreanu’s shot at a seventh bracelet couldn’t be ignored.
Negreanu returned short on chips but long on hope. Unfortunately, the deck didn’t run his way and Mosseri won his second career bracelet.
Viewers can catch all the PLO action on PokerGO before Poker After Dark lights up the message boards with “PLOMG” this Tuesday, September 26 through Thursday, September 28.
