Many congratulations to Filippos on becoming yet another first time winner at this year's series. These pot limit omaha events are becoming the most popular of all the disciplines of late

and here again the new winner of the world series .... it's just fine when older players replace new players ... 46 years old and the first bracelet is of course very cool .... and now it's also 46 years old and so I can look forward with optismism ..... of course I'm joking ... my level of play is weak

Many players from unites states again, but this time i can see two greek players.
Besides the ones that says greece, the first one is also.
Clearly a greek name Smile
Not bad for a 1kUSD buy in and an omaha game.

Yes i too think similar like mober write that for 1 thousand buyin it is a good win, about 170.000 is very big money. And i too think that 1 thousand dollars is very good buy in to small players, to play in world series of poker is dream to many poker players and this buyin is about good size to small players to get

you are right and there are two Greek names. Only one of them will pay a colossal tax of course and i think he will be upset about this. These governments should be stopped because politicians steal a lot of money. It is very ugly to pay taxes of approximate 50%. That means slavery. Anyway, congratulations for the winner of this game.

yeah I can add my 2 cents to those above me who point that 1000 buy in is not that really huge and pot limit Omaha is a wildly popular and fun game, so definitely a chance to experience the thrills of playing in wsop and not going overboard with the buyin amount.

I doubt he is going to pay taxes, since the earnings are from the wsop.
The taxes apply to all online play here.
So i see that as an untaxed amount Smile unlike some other countries chasing their
players for it.

I have not heard of these gains from WSOP to be untaxed especially by United States of America. Laws are made that the state steals as much as he can from people. A Norwegian took second place in a tournament a few years ago and won 5 millions dollars and almost 148 k. 50,4 percents because the law so provides in their country. In Sua is the same but anothers players from UK and France they won 100% percents because they had a law and were not taxed. Is very nice with no taxes from wsop but not for all.

Congratulations, Filippos Stavrakis!
Unlike No Limit Hold'em, Pot Limit Omaha is a game filled with lots of action, especially on the flop. Drawing hands can often be favorites over made hands in Pot Limit Omaha.

I've never really unstood how to play Omaha properly but the limited experience I have supports what you say about there being way more action in Omaha compared to Hold'em.

In any case, that was a pretty good amount to win, congrats to the winner! Dollar

I am kind of scared to play PLO.

If you know this game, you can play some games at low stakes online and after that if you have the opportunity live. Pot Limit Omaha is much better because you can not bet all the stack once. You are 44 years and you're afraid? what are you, a little girl or a men? Smile You play with fear? for making money or for fun? In life you have to risk men.

Being a war veteran, I know what you mean. I absolutely loved eradicating nasty prowlers.

Have a nice day.
