The first live streamed nosebleed Pot Limit Omaha session involving rivals Tom Dwan and Daniel Cates was featured on Poker After Dark for “PLOMG” on Wednesday night. The rivalry led to six hours of action, available only on PokerGO, and the players return for a third and final night with a super-sized, seven player lineup for the $100,000 buy-in cash game.
Cates returns along with Phil Galfond, Brandon Adams and Isaac Haxton for another night of $300/$600 action. Two new players join the felt – Josh Arieh and Chance Kornuth – after a couple social media encounters.
Arieh has two World Series of Poker bracelets, famously finished third in the 2004 WSOP Main Event and has $7.2 million in tournament earnings. Arieh tweeted about the play of some of the players and put his money where his mouth his and flew from his home outside Atlanta to Las Vegas on a moment’s notice.

Kornuth is the founder of Chip Leader Coaching and has $5.6 million in earnings to back it up. He was having tech issues with the stream last night and decided he could get a better view of the table sitting at it.
It’s ok I have a better option for tonight

Dwan and Cates did get in a felting situation last night where Cates got the better of it in a $100,000 pot.
