Welcome to Day 2 of the World Series of Poker. Today the first non-hold’em event of the series kicks off with Event #4: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better.
Last year it was Benny Glaser who took down this event to start a massive summer tear. He took home $244,103 and topped the field of 903 to bring home his second career WSOP gold bracelet. Just a few days later he also took down the $10,000 Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship as well, earning $407,194 and winning his third WSOP bracelet. We’ll see if Glaser returns to defend his title today in Event #4.
Today's schedule calls for 10 one-hour levels with breaks every two levels. Players will start off the event with 7,500 chips. Late registration will remain open until the end of Level 6, or roughly 9:45 p.m. PST.
