Poker After Dark to Feature PLO With Dwan, Galfond This Week
Pot-limit Omaha fans, rejoice.
The great game of PLO returns to Poker After Dark this week on PokerGo in the three-episode "PLOMG Week," Poker Central announced today.
The high-stakes cash game, which will feature blinds of $300/$600, will run over the next three days from Sept. 26-28 on the subscription-based site.
A Star-Studded Lineup
The lineup will include several high-stakes PLO legends and should produce some fantastic action:
- Isaac Haxton
- Tom Dwan
- Brian Rast
- Phil Galfond
- Brandon Adams
- Ben Lamb
Lamb, Rast, Adams and Haxton can regularly be found playing in some of the biggest cash games and tournaments. Lamb, of course, also graced PokerGo screens this summer as a member of the 2017 World Series of Poker Main Event final table.
Galfond has largely been out of the public eye recently as he spends the vast majority of his time working to get RunItOnce Poker, his yet-to-be-launched real money online poker room. He said on Twitter that when he does find time to play, he's usually playing PLO or mixed games.
Dwan, an online cash legend, has become one of poker's most mysterious and buzzed-about players. He returned to the spotlight with the Poker After Dark relaunch and played one of the most watched hands of the year when he helped build a $700,000 pot on PokerGo.
While the history of Poker After Dark is largely a history of famous poker players battling in high-stakes sit-n-gos with the occasional cash game, PLO did have a bit of its own screen time in the popular show.
Way back in 2011, two episodes of a $100,000 PLO cash game aired. The rotation included Galfond, Dwan and Adams, as well as Phil Ivey, Brian Hastings, Jared Bleznick, and Patrik Antonius.
