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."
