In recent weeks, the success of Poker Central’s Pot Limit Omaha events has been there for all to see. They’ve been a key part of the success of high rolling poker events, with Poker Masters online series events and Super high Roller Bowl online events both filling up with players who love the four-card game.
It will come as no surprise, then, to discover that a PLO-specific Poker Masters series will sort the wraps from the saps as Poker Central bring plenty of new PLO events to their audience via PokerGO, the popular poker subscription service for fans of the game.
The events will be hosted by partypoker, who have also signed up to put on the ensuing WPT World Championship online series which will start in a matter of weeks. The Poker Masters Online (PMO) Pot Limit Omaha Series has been announced on Poker Central and will begin on 21st June.
Last time out, the PMO had a prizepool of $16,500,000, which was more than doubled by the end of the series, with over $34 million being paid out to 124 unique players. With commentary of the events provided by PokerGO’s go-to guy behind the mic Jeff Platt and double Global Poker Awards winner Joey Ingram, all the final tables of the forthcoming series will be shown on PokerGO of course, but they’ll also be available on PokerGO’s Facebook page and the partypokerTV Twitch channel.
With 29 events in total, entry fees go from a reasonable $500 to an eye-watering $50,000, with players sure to be eyeing the PMO Pot Limit Omaha Championship title, with the legendary Purple Jacket and a $50,000 Championship event seat added in to the prizes that pick of the players will already have cashed out for.
There’s a $1.5m prizepool in the Pot Limit Omaha Series Main Event with $500,000 up for grabs in the ‘Mini’ Main Event. J.R. McCabe, Poker Central’s Business Officer is delighted with the renewal of the partnership on the back of a hugely successful first PMO.
“Partnering with partypoker for our recent online tournaments like Poker Masters Online and the Super High Roller Bowl has proven to be a great success,” he said. “It’s been a privilege to provide a destination for the poker community to gather online, and we’re looking forward to both virtual and in-person events in the future.”
The online partner in question, partypoker, are very happy too, with the President of their live tour, and winner of the first-ever Poker Million, John Duthie, saying: “This is such a great opportunity to watch the world’s best PLO players fight it out on the virtual felt. The exceptional PokerGo production and commentary team will be on hand to deliver their usual excellent streams. This is not to be missed.”
