The PokerGO Pot Limit Omaha Series II is in full swing and, in recent days, some of the game’s best four-card exponents have picked up six-figure prizes.

PokerGO’s second venture into the world of Pot Limit Omaha (PLO) tournaments got underway on October 19 with a $5,100 freezeout. That event attracted 172 entries and, once the dust had settled, American pro Matthew Wantman emerged victorious to take home the title and $150,500.

Event #1: $5,100 PLO result

1stMatthew Wantman$150,500
2ndJim Collopy$111,800
3rdEvgeni Tourevski$86,000
4thQuan Tran$64,500
5thBenjamin Juhasz$51,600
6thMathyeu Provost$43,000

It was only a matter of time before someone from a Nordic country won a title. The Finns, Swedes, Danes, and Norwegians have long been a force in PLO and, in Event #2, Eelis Pärssinen reaffirmed that fact.

Event #2: $7,600 PLO bounty result

1stEelis Pärssinen$149,000
2ndAllan Le$104,300
3rdDustin Goldklang$74,500
4thSean Winter$59,600
5thDylan Weisman$44,700
6thBrian Rast$37,250

The Finnish pro has long been a formidable force in the poker variant with four hole cards and came out top of a 149-entrant field in the $7,600 bounty event. That victory earned Pärssinen $149,000 and gave him the momentum to make a deep run in the progressive bounty event won by Adam Hendrix on October 24.

Event #3: $10,100 PLO result

1stStephen Hubbard$231,750
2ndVasil Medarov$164,800
3rdRichard Gryko$123,600
4thKarel Mokry$97,850
5thDylan Weisman$77,250
6thCliff Josephy$61,800

Before Hendrix won PokerGO’s inaugural progressive bounty event, Stephen Hubbard won the first $10,100 tournament of the series.

103 entrants paid the necessary entrance fee to compete for the title which led to a number of big names making Monday’s final table. In the end, Hubbard did enough to overcome Vasil Medarov and bank the $231,750 top prize.

Event #4: $15,100 PLO progressive bounty result

1stAdam Hendrix$172,710$152,000
2ndDaniel Geeng$172,710$148,000
3rdRichard Gryko$109,080$9,000
4thChristian Heich$86,355$45,000
5thDaniel Negreanu$68,175$27,000
6thJoni Jouhkimainen$54,540$15,000

With the $10,100 buy-in tournaments in full swing, Bryce Yockey was next onto the winner’s rostrum. The American pro had three Omaha titles to his name heading into what’s, arguably, the toughest final table of the PokerGO PLO Series II so far.

Event #5: $10,100 PLO result

1stBryce Yockey$239,400
2ndKyle Merron$171,000
3rdJeremy Ausmus$125,400
4thJohn Riordan$102,600
5thArtem Maksimov$79,800
6thBen Yu$68,400
7thAlex Foxen$57,000

Although the likes of Alex Foxen and Jeremy Ausmus have had the majority of their tournament success in Hold’em events, they’re fearsome players, nonetheless. That fact didn’t seem to faze Yockey.

He started the October 25 final table with a small chip lead and, despite some knocks, he maintained composure. Yockey eventually got the job done by beating Kyle Merron heads-up to win $239,400 and his first PokerGO title.

Event #6: $10,100 PLO dealer’s choice result

1stJoao Simao$182,000
2ndAlex Foxen$123,500
3rdJordan Spurlin$84,500
4thTyler Brown$65,000
5thVeselin Karakitukov$52,000
6thZhen Cai$39,000
7thJim Collopy$32,500

The most recent winner at the 2023 PokerGO Pot Limit Omaha Series is Joao Simao. The Partypoker pro came through a small but tough field in the $10,100 dealer’s choice event to notch up his third cash of the series. The win not only netted Simao $189,000 but enough points to move into fifth place on the series leaderboard.

PokerGO’s Pot Limit Omaha Series II will continue until October 30. Of the four events remaining, all eyes are on the $25,200 PLO Championship, which gets under on October 29. For a recap of that event and more, check back next week.
