James Dempsey, 27, has won over $1 million dollars online and has also been very successful live. At the 2010 WSOP he won a $1,5k PLO event and ended up in second place in the $10k Omaha Hi/Lo event. In total he cashed in 4 events at the 2010 WSOP. Quite impressing if you ask me! It's clear that players like James Dempsey do not grow on trees, and Full Tilt probably realized the same thing when they signed him a few days ago.

James Dempsey played his first tournament as Red Pro in last Sunday's Poker Million at Full Tilt. However, he didn't do all that well this time, but he still has plenty of time to show the owners of Full Tilt that he deserves to be a Red Pro.

So why is Omaha getting so popular? Well, there are probably many reasons for this. The number 1 reason is probably that the game is similar to Hold'em but still much more action filled! Another 2 reasons could be that many poker players are simply getting tired of playing the same old Texas Hold'em or/and because the competition is getting tougher and tougher every day.
