Playing omaha is always a good experience, playing and winning that much,
is even better Smile
With only 26k buy in, the total winnings was 1.6 millions
A nice win of course.
And the winners list once more, is almost filled with usa players.

This game was more special. 278 players means something at a buy in of 25,000 dollars. It's not even Holdem. Is something more particular and this game proves he is very loved. I know of this player. I've seen him a few times and i congratulate him for his first bracelet.

Yeah, that is what caught my eye as well - they really outdid themselves this year on omaha.

Well, here's another gold bracelet winner .... the number of gold bracelet winners is more and more .... in addition a wonderful prize of 1.6 million dollars .... very cool .... the game of Omaha is quite interesting but for me it is not quite clear ..... probably because I rarely played it and always preferred hold'em

You should start to play sometime in the future, it's significantly higher in variance than hold'em but at the same time this is what makes it more fun. Learning what are the right opening hands from every position is an art by itself, especially on Pot-Limit-Omaha.

I'm trying to play different games, but the opportunity for this is far from everywhere .... the best option for this is svc Poker .... there are freerolls for various types of poker .... Today I played badusi and Omaha ... .a also tournaments are held there in almost all types of poker that exist

I've yet to see frequent omaha freerolls anywhere, back in the day when I started to play there were some on the old Microgaming Network but it was still enough to hook me in for life. I just love Omaha.

it is clear that there are already established and familiar poker rooms which you have been playing for many years and you don’t expect any surprises from them .... And each new poker room is something new that destroys the foundations on which your world stands .... but sometimes something new is useful

Stephen Chidwick is a very good player and now his talent was rewarded. The dream of the players is to earn money and then bracelets. After that is to won a place in Hall of Poker Fame. There is nothing wrong with this and is very good to win.
