$300 + $50 PLO (high)
Omaha is not a game for everyone. It is significantly more complex than Texas Hold'em. Add the extra component of Pot Limit betting, where strategy is more calculating that No Limit, and you've got a very technical game.
101 players decided to take their chances Monday and only the top 18 earned a piece of the $30,300 buy-ins. Those 18 returnED for day two Tuesday in order to establish their positions and claim their payouts.
When the chips fell silent, they were all in front of William Seymour of Greenville, NC. A timely pair of pocket Aces made William the chip leader with three players remaining and soon after, Seymour was the Champion. His first place prize was $8,817.
Runner-up to Seymour was none other than three-time WSOP bracelet winner 'Miami' John Cernuto (Las Vegas, NV). John was third in chips coming to the final table and even held the chip lead briefly, but in the end, he had to settle for second. Cernuto claimed $4,850 for his efforts in this event.
One other player of note at this final table was Brent Keller (Horsham, PA). He has made back-to-back Omaha final tables. In this event, he finished 8th, earning $882. Last week he finished 2nd in the Omaha Hi/Lo event, earning $10,243.
