Day 3 of the World Series of Poker Event #49: $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six Max returned 19 players with the tall task of playing down to a winner. Chino Rheem returned to play with the chip lead but flamed out in 15th place while Luis Calvo played his way through the final table exclusively on PokerGO to win his first bracelet and $362,185.

Calvo picked up his fourth WSOP cash with the win, but that doesn’t reflect his experience in the game. “I’ve traveled the whole world playing Omaha and Limit Hold’em at higher levels, higher stakes,” he said after winning. “I’m not really a big fan of tournaments, but I did decide to play the $1,500 PLO and this one; I took a bad beat in the $1,500 but I knew that I would enjoy it. I just don’t enjoy No Limit.”

Calvo is from South Florida and been playing with the Mizrachi brothers for nearly 20 years. “Mike and I have been friends since ’99,” he said. “We started playing in the same underground clubs with Robert, Chino Rheem, Stuart Patterson… a lot of guys that have had a lot success in poker.”

“They’ve gone out and really crushed it on the tournament scene,” he added. “I’ve really just been along for the ride on the cash game scene. They always push me to play tournaments.”

The PokerGO broadcast featured commentators Lon McEachern and Norman Chad and noted PLO superfan and poker personality Joe Ingram joined them in the booth.
