More Than the First Two WSOPs

Nível 1 : 25-50, 0 ante

Daniel Negreanu commented on the number of players listed on the clock, which currently reads 26. That's a low number no doubt, but as Tournament Director Jack Effel pointed out: "This is more players than the first two World Series combined."

Indeed, those two events drew six players apiece, so we're already more than double that. Effel was clearly joking knowing full well that the number in this high buy-in event is sure to grow as players continue to filter in and late registration remains open through Level 8.

While one pot-limit Omaha tournament — Event #3 $1,650 PLO — will crown a winner today, another will be kicking off with Event #5 AUD$5,000 PLO, which is a new event on the World Series of Poker Asia-Pacific schedule.

The tournament is expected to draw a field of top pros included 13-time WSOP bracelet winner Phil Hellmuth, who will be seeking his first PLO bracelet; 2013 WSOP Main Event champ Ryan Riess, who bubbledEvent $4 $1,650 No-Limit Hold'em Terminator late last night; WSOP Player of the Year contender George Danzer; 2010 WSOP Main Event winner Jonathan Duhamel; and reigning WSOP APAC Main Event champ Daniel Negreanu.

We'll also likely see some players who fared well in the aforementioned PLO event such as Mike Watson (14th - AUD$3,002), Scott Davies (12th - AUD$3,633), Ismael Bojang (11th - AUD$3,633), and Mel Judah (10th - AUD$4,472). Finally, there's a good chance Australian Hall of Famers Gary Benson, Jeff Lisandro and Jason Gray will make an appearance once they're done with the Event #3 final table.

Players will start the tournament with 15,000 in chips, and the plan for the day is to play 10 one-hour levels with a 15-minute break every two levels. There will also be a one-hour dinner break after Level 6. Late registration will remain open through Level 8. Cards will be in the air in a little over an hour, so stay tuned as the PokerNews Live Reporting brings you all the PLO action you can handle from the Crown Casino in Melbourne, Australia.
