Poker After Dark Tries Out PLO Cash Game

We’re pretty much used to seeing only Hold’em games played on Poker After Dark, but this time, the producers decided to break tradition and play a round of Pot Limit Omaha. To make this session extra special, they even recruited some of the world’s best Pot Limit Omaha players.

An Introduction

Texas Hold’em is pretty much the poster boy for poker game variations, but Pot Limit Omaha comes at a close second. As such, it really was high time that Poker After Dark paid some sort of tribute to this highly popular poker variation, and what better way to do so than to have the best PLO players battle it out on the felt? This week’s lineup of players included Brandon Adams, Phil “OMGClayAiken” Galfond, Patrik Antonius, Tom Dwan, and Phil Ivey. Jared “Harrington25” Bleznick was the only newcomer to the series, a poker pro who has enjoyed considerable success in the live arena. Since the subject matter of PLO could possibly be new for a portion of Poker After Dark viewers, the show actually started out with a simple explanation of the rules and mechanics of the game, Poker pros Andy Bloch and Ali Nejad were also on hand to provide their two cents on the hands played at the table. The producers utilized a four-color on-screen deck to make the suits more distinguishable.

Big Pots and Big Swings

PLO is a poker variation that is known to create some very huge pots. This was evident in the massive $240,000 pot created by Patrik Antonius and Tom Dwan. There’s really no surprise that this huge pot was created between these two, as they always were known for their outrageously large bets. The two players had decided to run it twice, and the result was Dwan winning the first round and Antonius winning the second. They both gained $120,000 for the hand. Antonius was involved in another huge pot for the session, this time with Phil Ivey. They managed to create a pot worth $186,000 but unlike the previous one, they decided to run once, and the monster pot was sent to Ivey. Antonius must have been in an aggressive mood that session because he was involved in the third largest pot as well, this time with Brandon Adams. Adams had a flush but Antonius had a full house, giving him a pot worth $124,000.
