A lot has changed on the pot-limit Omaha tournament earnings leaderboard since our most recent update in March of 2023. Most noteworthy is the new name at the very top of the list: Ka Kwan Lau. In June Lau took down the largest pot-limit Omaha tournament ever held, in terms of total prize pool. The $25,000 bracelet event at the World Series of Poker drew 449 entries, creating a record $10,551,500 prize pool.

Lau earned his first bracelet and a staggering $2,294,756 top prize as the champion. The Hong Kong-based pro was not in the top ten during our last look at this leaderboard, but he is far from a one-trick pony. He has more than $1.6 million in PLO earnings from his 13 other qualifying scores, including the $773,708 he took home as the runner-up in another $25,000 bracelet event back in 2021.

Ben Lamb recorded five PLO cashes since the update in March, adding more than $211,000 to his tally, which is now more than $3.6 million. The 2011 WSOP PLO championship winner now has four titles and 31 cashes in the discipline, keeping him second on this list.

The top three on this list are rounded out by Shaun Deeb, who is hot on Lamb’s heels with $3,593,400 in career PLO cashes. Deeb has won the $25,000 PLO event at the series twice, in 2018 and 2021. The New York pro earned his third career live PLO title in August, emerging victorious in the $25,500 event at the Seminole Hard Rock Poker Open for $239,100.

Tommy Le, who was no. 1 at the time of our update in March, now sits in fourth place. He has added three PLO cashes to his long résumé since then, bringing his total to 34 in-the-money finishes for nearly $3.5 million in earnings.

Stephen Chidwick completes the top five. His most notable PLO score of late was his third-place showing in the Super High Roller Bowl PLO event for $570,000, which brought his total earnings in the game to more than $3.3 million. The champion of that event, Jared Bleznick, climbed to seventh on this list. For more info on his win, check out our recap on page 18. ♠
