2018 WSOP: Event #11: $365 PLO GIANT won by Canada's Tim Andrew for 116,015

Tags: 2018 WSOP, Pedro Arroyos, Tim Andrew.
Posted on Wednesday, July 04, 2018 by "T".

Scheduled from June 3 to July 3, 2018, Event #11: $365 PLO GIANT of the 2018 WSOP has now come to an end, and the one who outlasted a field of 3,250 entries is Canadian Tim Andrew, who has won his very first bracelet with his first cash at the WSOP series.

This tournament format of the popular game of pot-limit Omaha is a new one offered by WSOP and it has a very affordable buy-in price for its players. The $365 PLO GIANT event had five starting flights, with each flight scheduled on a Sunday evening all throughout June. Surviving players from all those flights returned into one field on July 2, Monday and battled to reach the final table. It was 31-year-old Tim Andrew from British Columbia who won the event, claiming his first gold bracelet in what would be the very first WSOP event he had entered.

Andrew entered the final table tied for 3rd chip position. He actually came in around 30 minutes late, unable to wake up on time despite setting an alarm. With the Rio 15 minutes away from where he's staying, he woke up and figured he's going to miss some hands regardless, so he took a nice cool shower prior to heading over to take his seat at the final table.

Andrew survived to the short-handed play with a healthy stack, even though he did not knock out any players in the process. It was actually Pedro Arroyos who scored the most knockouts on the final table.

As the final hand draws near, Arroyos had a 3-to-1 chip advantage but Andrew fought well enough to defeat him and claim the bracelet plus the first place prize money.

With a buy in like that, and the game being Omaha plo, it wasnt a surprise, hat it had more than 3000 players in.
And the prize money of course due to that made a nice payout for all the
positions.
116K from a 365 buy inf Smile

Is a pretty good amount for him and with a bracelet he did something beautiful. For an omaha game it is very good. Even if it's a popular game you can not win this money so fast with omaha. This is the situation and i congratulate this player for his abilities and for 1st in this game.

again the new owner of the poker bracelet .... yeah what's happening lately ??? ... used to be a small number of poker players who played these bracelets and now that neither the tournament so the new owner of the bracelet .... it seems to me that this bracelet loses its value ... am I right? Question

It must take a great deal of concentration to play a tournament for a month and it must give a great deal of satisfaction to actually win the whole thing. I think these lower buy-ins are a great thing and long may they continue

Not manny players in this tournament with same money buyin of 365 dollars like in texas no limit holdem tournament. About three times more in texas nl than pot limit omaha, maybe people like texas more
