Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em

Time to Take it to the Limit

Last year's Limit Holdem champion, Daniel Idema

Welcome to the Rio yet again for more action here at the 2012 World Series of Poker. Tonight sees the beginning of Event 20: $5,000 Limit Hold'em. It's going to be a stacked field full of recognizable faces, so make sure to tune in.

In the past this event has been played with a $10,000 buy-in, but that has changed this year as Event 20 becomes the new championship of Limit Holdem. It can be argued that this event belongs to Daniel Idema as he took down the $10,000 Limit Holdem Championship in 2011 and finished runner-up in the same event in 2010. Stats don't lie and so Idema will be one to watch tonight.

Some of the other recent Limit Holdem final table alumni at the WSOP include the likes of Barry Greenstein, Michael Mizrachi, Justin Smith and Andy Bloch, and that's only in the last few years.

We are sure some of the biggest names in poker, new and old, will be ready to get their min-raise on here in Event 20, so don't miss all the action as it kicks of in just over half an hour at 5:00 PM. Keep you browsers locked to PokerNews!
