2016 WSOP: Benny Glaser Wins $10k Omaha High-Low Split Championship

Tags: 2016 WSOP, Benny Glaser, Omaha High-Low Split Championship.
Posted on Thursday, June 23, 2016 by "T".

Just a few days after winning Event #26: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low Split-8 or Better, British poker pro Benny Glaser scooped his second title of the 2016 World Series of Poker by winning yet another Omaha tournament!

Event #32: $10,000 Omaha High-Low Split Championship attracted 163 entrants which created a $1.5 million prize pool...and Glaser took home the lion's share ($407,194) along with a third gold coveted bracelet! His latest victory means that he has two wins for the series in Omaha High-Low Split.

"It's surprising that I would win two gold bracelets, at all," said Glaser.  "But if I was going to win, it would have been in this game since this is my best game and the one I have played the most online."

When asked by WSOP.com why Omaha is his best game, Glaser replied: "I think it's the one game that plays closest to a cash game as a tournament.  Definitely, some adjustments need to be made. But these limit games are more like I am used to in day to day."

Many congratulations to Benny Glaser on winning his second bracelet this year. Looking at the finale table, Todd Brunson and Jason Mercier to name but two, he must have played perfect poker to win
