Willing to go to great lengths for Pot Limit Omaha

by Lee Watkinson |  Published: Jan 20, '09


The next event i will play after a long hiatus from the tables will be one of the Pot-Limit Omaha events at the Commerce tournament.

I was very happy to see that when Matt Savage took over as Tournamnet Director for this event he added several new events. I will admit that when tournaments like the Belagio first went all No-Limit all the time I thought it was a good idea, but now I really look forward to tournaments that offer Pot Limit Omaha events and I know others feel the same way about other games. I live in Vegas and rarely play a preliminary No limit event other than the WSOP events, but am willing to drive to Los Angeles for a little PLO so it might be time for other tournaments to think about mixing it up a little as well.
