Event 11 Recap

$350 Buy-In + $50 Entry

Big Stack Pot Limit Omaha - High

PLOh-Yeah! Event 11 is in the books after running 16 hours. When the dust settled it was chipslinger and seven year poker pro, Paul Greim (Helmetta, NJ) who picked off 20-25 players and collected every one of the 2,800,000 PLO tournament chips.

Players began with 20,000 and all were vying for part of the $49,000 total buy-in.

Famous faces in the field included: James Boyd, Keith Crowder, Paul Spitzberg,
and Billy Seymour.

Of course only the top 18 cashed. And 18th place Terrance O’Connell barely cashed as the bubble took over an entire level to break then during hand-to-hand, two players from two different tables busted out simultaneously.

Three Alan’s were playing on the final three tables. Alan Marshal finished in 11th place while the last Allan standing was (the other) Allan Barrie who earned $4,515 for third place.

Second place went to Gregory Kolo who thought he was destined for third place. Kolo collects $7,842 for his marathon day’s work.

Everyone had fun throughout the poker tournament PLO grind but it seemed our first time champion Paul Greim had the most fun. Sure he won the $14,258 prize but the 27 year old lit up like a Christmas tree after seeing the Borgata Poker Open trophy and sunglasses.
