The Pot Limit Omaha 8 tournament is continuing the trend of great turnouts for our non-hold’em games. We have 47 entries in the first hour and will most likely top the 97 we drew for this tournament last year.
David Shmuel ran well in the 2017 tournament. The Hollywood regular booked his first major SHRP trophy last year and followed that up with another RRPO title a week later. Shmuel’s won another tournament this past August in the SHRPO Pot Limit Omaha game for three trophies in less than a year.
