Pot Limit Omaha – Your Ten Cents Worth


Paying for your education can be expensive, not to mention painful, but paying for your entertainment is a different thing entirely. Where nowadays can you get 4 hours plus of entertainment for ten cents?

The following 9 screengrabs are from two tournaments played October 15, 2012. The first was a 9c + 1c pot limit Omaha sit and go on PokerStars; the second was the Bronze Invitational Freeroll on Ladbrokes. The sit and go had 240 runners; the no limit hold ’em had 1,465 runners competing for the €200.00 prize pool, and paid 300 places. Not everybody turned up for that, so it was not extraordinarily difficult to cash. And cash I did, in both, so this wasn’t simply cheap entertainment, it paid, after a fashion. Something that is even better if like me you can multitask reasonably well, and do a bit of surfing at the same time.
