Welcome to the ARIA Resort & Casino and the PokerGO Studio for the 2019 U.S. Poker Open and Event #2 – $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha.
Coverage is set to get underway at 5 p.m. EST in this $10,000 Pot Limit Omaha tournament that drew 64 entries last year. Back then, Mike Gorodinsky came out on top to take home $179,200, and this year the early indications are that this event could eclipse last year’s turnout. Gorodinsky defeated a final table that included Cary Katz, Andjelko Andrejevic, Anthony Zinno, Rainer Kempe, and Richard Kirsch heads-up.

Today will see the second event of the U.S. Poker Open with Event #2: $10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. Players will begin with 125,000 in starting chips and be playing 30-minute levels with play ending once the final table is down to six players. There are no tournament fees for players who register by 2 p.m. (PST) and each player is allowed two re-entries through the first nine levels (ending approximately 6:20 p.m. local time). There is also a 30-second shot clock in play for the duration of the tournament and each player will receive three 60-second time banks each day.
