Event 26: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha

$3,000 PLO Kicks Off at 5:00 PM

The Rio -- home of the 2012 WSOP

Welcome to the PokerNews coverage of Event 26, the $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha. Last year, a field of 685 players gathered for this event and Sam Stein outlasted them all, earning $420,802 and his first World Series of Poker gold bracelet.

Each player in this event will begin with 3,000 in tournament chips and receive two additional add-on lammers that can be used anytime during the first four levels. Players who have not used any of the lammers by the end of Level 4, will automatically receive them then. Registration will also be open through the first four levels of play tonight.

A big field of competitors is expected for this one and we expect to see some more multi-tabling between some of the players still in the other events running today. The cards are set to be in the air at 5:00 PM, so get comfy and enjoy the action.
