Short Deck has taken the poker world by storm in 2018. The new game has been featured in high stakes tournaments and some of the biggest televised pots from around the world. Poker After Dark has also hosted a few sessions without deuces, treys, fours, or fives, including “Big Three” week’s rotation of No Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and Short Deck.
Next week, two of those variants combine to create one of the most exciting debuts in Poker After Dark history. Pot Limit Omaha Short Deck cash games will stream for back-to-back nights, beginning December 3 at 6 PM ET.
Justin Bonomo will headline the aptly named “Pro Bono” week, along with Ben Lamb and Sam Soverel. Lamb is the mastermind behind Pot Limit Omaha Short Deck and after creating the game inside ARIA’s Ivey Room, it comes to Poker After Dark and PokerGO.
Bonomo has been a regular in those PLO-SD cash games and enters the last month of 2018 as poker’s all-time winningest tournament player. The Super High Roller Bowl and Big One for One Drop champion has won over $25 million this year and now has over $43 million in career earnings.
Soverel and Jonathan Depa were both featured during “Big Three” week and have had their own tournament success in 2018. Soverel leads the High Roller of the Year race heading into Super High Roller Bowl V and Depa recorded multiple cashes during the 2018 Poker Masters. Daniel Aharoni rounds out the lineup.
