The 2019 World Series of Poker is nearing its conclusion and the final bracelet winners of the summer will be decided within the next five days. Event #85: $3,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 6-Handed is the last PLO event of the series and is set to begin at 3 p.m. local time this afternoon.
Last year’s event saw Ronald Keijzer become the fifth Dutch player to win a bracelet after defeating a field of 901 players for the first prize of $475,033. That figure was up from 2016, when Luis Calvo won $320,193 after navigating a significantly smaller field of just 630.
Players will receive 20,000 starting chips for this year’s edition of the tournament. There are 10 one-hour levels on the schedule for the day with 15-minute breaks occurring at the end of every two levels. As usual for 3 p.m. starting times on Day 1, there will be no dinner break. One re-entry is allowed and late registration will be open until the completion of the break at the end of Level 8, around midnight local time.
The PokerNews team is here to bring you updates as all the action unfolds for both this tournament and the rest of this historic 50th annual World Series of Poker.
