Best-loved by action junkies, Eurodonks and people with too much money and not enough common sense, PLO dominates the nosebleed-stakes cash tables online and is a thrilling alternative to Texas Hold'em.
Plus, most low-stakes players are still terrible at the game so it's a variation worth considering if you're bored and the Mountain Dew isn't doing it for you anymore.
Anyways, this is Event 5 at the World Series. Last year's iteration saw Vanessa Selbst beat out 758 other PLO freaks to take a $227,965 first prize and her first WSOP bracelet, thus cementing her reputation as one of the most talented and underrated female pros in the world.
Selbst told PokerListings she was considering quitting the game after her victory last year, so we'll have our eyes out to see whether she returns to defend her title.
This year's event will last three days, with each player getting $1,500 and two add-on chips to start. The add-on chips will give players an additional $3,000 in total and can be cashed in anytime during the first three levels of play.
We'll play ten sixty-minute levels tonight before calling it quits.
