Poker After Dark has been the home to the world’s biggest televised cash games for the better part of a decade, but Pot Limit Omaha appearances have been few and far between. Four-card action didn’t make the cut for the original Poker After Dark until Season 7, but the “great game” did return this past fall during “PLOMG” week.
Those cash games featured some huge pots and the same juicy action was featured this past week, as both “Racks of Lamb” cash games did not disappoint. Matt “Aussie Matt” Kirk and Ben Lamb battled on both nights, while Brian Rast and Poker After Dark legend Gus Hansen pulled up chairs for the final act of the $100/$200/$400 session.
Kirk and Lamb dominated the opening night, with the “Racks of Lamb” namesake booking a nearly $250,000 win. Kirk was involved more often than he was on the sidelines and he finished in the black, while his win was nothing compared to his result from “The Return of Tom Dwan” week.
“Aussie Matt” was in the middle of the Pot Limit Omaha hurricane during the “Racks of Lamb” finale, but Gus Hansen was the driving force of that storm. “The Great Dane” opened the night losing a $120,000 pot, in a multi-way all-in, and then ran his $30,000 rebuy into an over $200,000 stack, including a massive win against Brian Rast in one of the final hands of the night.
Subscribe now to relive both nights of “Racks of Lamb” cash games and to catch up on past Poker After Dark action. Poker After Dark is set to return next week, with Jennifer Tilly, Don Cheadle, Antonio Esfandiari, and more starring in “Moving Violations” week.
