Pot Limit Omaha players are often overlooked when it comes to tournament poker. Not at partypoker where the PLO players have some incredible tournaments to get their teeth into: the PLO Daily Legends.
partypoker's Daily Legends tournaments have proven immensely popular for several reasons. They have reduced a late registration period and limited re-entries (usually just a single re-entry) which levels the playing field. They finish at a reasonable hour, too, without compromising the average stack size. They are genius really.
PLO Daily Legends follow in the same vein except they are all Omaha tournaments instead of hold'em. Buy-ins range from the $2.20 Forge and increase to the $55 Chieftain.
