Wayne Brown is the current frontrunner with nearly 50,000 and the clear leader. He’s a regular in our games and looking for his first SHRP title.
We have a great turnout so far in our first non-hold’em game with 54 entries in the game after the first hour. They are on their way to topping the 78 this game attracted last year and we are waiting to see if defending champ Michael Moed returns.
SHRP regular Brian Gelrod was an early entrant into the four-card game and this is one of his favorite formats. He has more than a dozen final tables to his credit with seven of them coming in Omaha/8 games.
