For the first time in Global Poker Championship history we’re running PLO8 events, which is another highlight for us, and for you. If you’re not familiar with PLO8, don’t sweat it, we’ve got an article from our resident poker lover, Lee Jones, on PLO8 starting hands.
Here’s a sneak peek. “You have to reset your perspective, both from hold’em and from PLO high-only. Concentrate on making nut hands and winning entire—not half—pots.” Nice, thanks Lee!
Check the schedules below to help organize your calendar for the PLO8 events.
