Event 4: First Break

Structure
Level 5: 200/400
Entries: 69

The Pot Limit Omaha 8 game recently returned from their first break of the day. The entry count is up to 69 for another great non-hold’em turnout as the majority of the room grinds the Ultimate Re-Entry.

Making room for them, the PLO8 is playing out in the back corner of the Event Center for a more intimate, quiet game.

They have four more levels plus the break to push the number higher with late registration closing at 4:30pm.
