If you're a recreational player, and you decided to take a shot in today's $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split 8-or-better event, then you probably don't want to find yourself at Table 32. There you can find Phil Ivey (8 WSOP bracelets), Mike Matusow (3 WSOP bracelets), and Matt Graham (2 WSOP bracelets). The three have a combined four bracelets in Omaha events, and Ivey also has a bracelet in Omaha/Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo.
None of these players have cashed this year yet however, and Matusow is the only player among the three who recorded a cash in 2011. Ivey famously boycotted the WSOP, and Graham played very few events himself. Despite cashing three times, Matusow didn't have a stellar 2011 either - he recorded just over $30,000 in cashes.
All three players could use a WSOP boost, so why not start now?
