PLO Weekender at DTD Guarantees £75,000
Pot Limit Omaha is an extremely popular poker variant online, but live PLO tournaments are rarer than hen’s teeth outside of the World Series of Poker. Dusk Till Dawn knows plenty of its player prefer four hole cards over two so is running the PLO Weekender this weekend with £75,000 worth of guaranteed prize pools to play for.
The first of two PLO Weekender tournaments is the £25,000 guaranteed PLO Big Game. Featuring two live starting flights and two online flights, this £60 buy-in affair is at the more affordable end of the buy-in scale. Players sit down with 50,000 chips and play to 30-minute blinds live and 12-minute blinds online at partypoker. Blinds start at 100/200.

High rollers among you will no doubt be interested in learning there is a £1,100 buy-in PLO event with a £50,000 guaranteed prize pool. Perhaps the best feature of this tournament is it is scheduled to finish in a single day, kicking off at 2:00 p.m. on November 2nd and crowning its champion on the same day.
Dusk Till Dawn estimate first place in the PLO 1 Day 1K will be in the region of £20,000, which isn’t to be sniffed at for a single day’s grinding.
DTD’s Simon Trumper is just one of many poker players who is looking forward to a weekend of pot-limit Omaha action. Trumper took to Facebook to say, “Really big fan of what the club guys are doing here with the PLO Weekender. I’ll be supporting it and playing too so hopefully we can make it a more regular fixture in the poker calendar.
Satellites for the PLO Big Game are running online at partypoker throughout the week costing £11 and guaranteeing five £60 seats. While there are no direct satellites for the 1 Day £1K, players can buy in using PP LIVE Dollars if they so wish.
