Three Grand Prix Summer Champions Crowned In PLO8 Events On PartyPoker


The Grand Prix Summer series continues on PartyPoker, with three more championship titles earned in three more championship events. All three of these events (numbered events #07, #08, and #09) were pot limit Omaha eight-or-better tournaments. The buy-ins went from $1.10 to $33.

All three of these Grand Prix Summer events were progressive knock-out tourneys with player bounties sometimes being worth rather more than the cash prizes. This was certainly the case for "Alvaro Veritas” who won Grand Prix Summer #07 PLO8 PKO Championship for a total of $3,027. More than half ($1,659) of his win came from bounties he collected along the way.

This $33 buy-in event attracted 647 entrants creating a total prize pool of $19,410, half of which went into the main prize pool, half in bounties on the player’s heads.

“Alvaro Veritas” ultimately beat “Jumashouse” heads up to take the title. “Jumashouse” went home with $1,787 total. Their cash was made up of $1,366 for second place and $421 in bounties.

Big Turn Out For Grand Prix Summer #08 Mini PLO8 PKO Championship

1,598 entrants is a pretty good turnout for a pot limit Omaha eights-or-better event. However, after the counts were in from the five Day 1 flights, that is how many times players coughed up $5.50 to play Grand Prix Summer #08 Mini PLO8 PKO Championship.

The large turnout meant that the event comfortably smashed its $5,000 guarantee with a prize pool of $7,986.

From that $7,986, the appropriately named “BOMAHA77” took home $1,096 — $575 in bounties and $521 for first place. “BOMAHA77’s” victory came after a heads up chip with “CaliWeedFan1993” who took second place. “CaliWeedFan1993” only earned $37 in bounties meaning that despite a near-even split of the prize pool, they went home with a total of just $556.

“UberSuper” Turns $1.10 Into $220 In Grand Prix Summer #08 Mini PLO8 PKO Championship

The Grand Prix Summer #09 Micro PLO8 PKO Championship attracted 1,549 entrants, making the field slightly bigger than the $5.50 event. This made for a prize pool of $1,549, $220 of which went to “UberSuper” for their first-place finish.

UberSuper” took first place after a heads up chop with “Flossen”. “UberSuper” won $104 for first place (plus $116 in bounties), while “Flossen” took $103 (plus $30 in bounties).

As with the other events, players were allowed just one re-entry per flight. However, with twelve Day 1 flights available, there were plenty of chances for a PLO8 fan to jump into the action.
