$360 Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry) Structure Sheet Level 9: 400/800 Players Remaining: 30 of 89
Pot Limit Omaha players are back in their seats after the second break and registration is now closed. The tournament drew 89 entries to beat last year’s field for a tough group of PLO grinders. We will post the prize pool and payouts as soon as they are official.
Stefan Lundvist returned to the biggest stack and his 71,000 has him in prime position for a deep run. Other players still in the game include Joel Harwood (68,000), Zachary Milchman (42,100), Joey Alegria (21,000), Michael Rosenberg (36,200), and Matthew Silva (20,800).
$360 Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry) Structure Sheet Level 8: 300/600 Total Entries: 83
The Pot Limit Omaha tournament reached Level 8 and players have less than one hour to make their way down for some PLO action. The field is only four entries short of topping last year’s turnout and we should get there with the pace of play in the action-heavy game.
$360 Pot Limit Omaha (Re-Entry) Structure Sheet Level 5: 200/300 Total Entries: 65
The Pot Limit Omaha event is on its first break of the day an hour after the Ultimate Re-Entry took their breather. They have 65 entries in the mix so far with a chance to reach last year’s numbers.
Seminole Hard Rock Tampa poker ambassador Wally Maddah had a decision to make today. Since he already advanced to Day 2 of the Ultimate Re-Entry event, he could take another shot to pick up a $2,500 Multi-stack award for a second stack or sit down in the PLO game. A variant that he says he does not have a ton of experience playing.
Maddah chose PLO and he might be understating his abilities. He booked a PLO tournament win during the 2013 Fall Tampa Bay Poker Open, made the final table of the 2016 SHRPO PLO event, and finished eighth in the WSOP Circuit PLO event here in September.

The Pot Limit Omaha game is slowly building while the ballroom across the hall is packed with Ultimate Re-Entry players. We mentioned Michael Newman, defending champ, and his exploits in the non-hold’em games.
David Prociak knows a little something about those games as well. The 2016 SHRP Player of the Year has eight tournament wins with only one in a No Limit Hold’em tournament. Six of those came in Pot Limit Omaha including his first WSOP Circuit ring here in September. Prociak holds a Stud Hi/Lo WSOP bracelet from the summer of 2016 and four major SHRP PLO trophies.
Like Newman, Prociak also captured titles in three straight series including two PLO titles during the 2017 WPT Seminole Hard Rock Lucky Hearts Poker Open.
Pot Limit Omaha tournaments are one of the favorite events on any SHRP schedule and today we will crown our next PLO champ. SHRP regular Michael Newman took the crown last year and we expect to see him back to defend this afternoon.
The tournament gives players 10,000 starting stacks and the tournament will run 30-minute levels from start to finish. Late registration is available until the start of Level 9 at 4:30pm and they can expect a dinner break around 6:30pm. This is another one-day trophy event and they will continue playing down until we award another title.
Action will get underway at noon and we will keep an eye out for some fast play.
