Event 2 has itself a nice field already with more than 100 entries in the Limit Omaha 8 tournament as they moved into Level 3. They will put this field in our top five all-time with no problem and they are giving chase to make it the biggest. 160 will get them there and that number is in play.
Some notables in the field include SHRP old school O8 player Brian Gelrod, four-time Hollywood champ Phil Hui, and RRPO Black Chip Bounty champ Dean Salisbury.
While the $600 Deep Stack tournament is first on the LHPO schedule, Event 2 will hand out the first trophy. It is a $400 Limit Omaha 8 tournament with a one-day format that will have a champion before the end of the night.
Players start with 12,000 stacks and all levels last 30 minutes. Late registration and unlimited re-entries are available until the start of Level 9 at 4:30 pm. They will have a 40-minute dinner break at 6 pm and return to play down to the Event 2 champion.
