After the first few installments of Poker After Dark’s reboot captivated poker fans with some of the biggest No Limit Hold’em games in televised poker history, “PLOMG” week welcomes Pot Limit Omaha into the mix. Three high stakes PLO cash games will pit the world’s top Pot Limit Omaha players against each other over the next week, with the first of three $300/$600 sessions live on PokerGO.
Phil Galfond, who is arguably one of the world’s best Pot Limit Omaha players, headlines the “PLOMG” opener, along with Brandon Adams. The former Harvard professor is fresh off a $50,000 Poker Masters victory and will be playing on all three nights during “PLOMG” week. Both Galfond and Adams are making their PAD reboot debuts, but were both in the first PLO cash games during Season 7 of Poker After Dark.
Adams isn’t the only playing joining the four-card action that is coming off a recent victory. Ben Lamb final tabled this year’s WSOP Main Event and then followed that run with a Poker After Dark $25,000 sit and go victory during “Voices Carry” week. Brian Rast and Isaac Haxton also return, after battling in the biggest cash games in Poker After Dark history during “Rumble with Jungle” week.
While Tom Dwan was originally scheduled to participate in all three “PLOMG” cash games, he tweeted earlier today that he will be missing the first night of action. That means Tuesday’s opening “PLOMG” session will begin five-handed, but a replacement player may be added to the lineup at some point tonight.
It should also be noted that Dwan will be participating in both “PLOMG” cash games on Wednesday and Thursday. With or without Tom Dwan, tonight’s “PLOMG” opener will be packed with action and you can watch it all, only on PokerGO.
