Sasha Rosewood leads big-name field at Event #4

Sasha Rosewood leads big-name field at Event #4

Tuesday, 1 June 2010

Personally, we can’t think of any more boring variant of poker than fixed limit Omaha 8-or-better. However, what do we know? Event #4, a $1,500 buy-in Omaha 8 tournament, attracted a field of 818 players to create a first prize of almost a quarter-million dollars.

The remaining field is more star-studded than you might imagine, too, with five former bracelet winners and a November Niner in the shape of Ylon Schwarz remaining. Jeff Madsen was on a comfortable chip lead and gunning for his third bracelet before losing a big pot and slipping down the rankings.

$50,000 champion David Bach is still in the field ahead of Huck Seed with Sasha Rosewood leading the 26 remaining players as they prepare today to play down to a final table. She has a monstrous chip lead, touching 400,000 compared to second-place Michael Cipolla’s 275,000.

Join us tomorrow to find out who made the final table of the (yawn) Fixed Limit Omaha Hi/Lo 8-or-Better tournament.

Now get me some No-Limit games, stat!
