The great game of Pot Limit Omaha has seen its popularity increase in the last decade with higher stakes and bigger tournament field sizes. PokerGO has played host to both epic cash games and riveting tournament play, and in honor of this week’s “Racks of Lamb,” cash game action on Poker After Dark, we’ve created an overview of all the Pot Limit Omaha action available on PokerGO.

Ivey, Dwan and Antonius Clash in Cash Games

During the first run of Poker After Dark from 2007-2011, it took until the seventh and final season before Pot Limit Omaha was first featured, but what a show it was! Tom Dwan, Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Phil Galfond, Brian Hastings and Jared Bleznick battled in this game with a $100,000 minimum buy-in, creating arguably one of the most exciting games of PLO ever filmed. Click here to watch this PLO action unfold as all episodes are available exclusively on PokerGO.

As Poker After Dark returned in September of 2017 on PokerGO, fans wondered when Pot Limit Omaha would become part of the mix. Just a few weeks later a mix of players including lineup Tom Dwan, Phil Galfond, Ben Lamb, Brandon Adams, Brian Rast, Isaac Haxton, Daniel Cates, Josh Arieh and Chance Kornuth battled it out with $300/$600 blinds and hundreds of thousands on the line over three nights.

The first night of PLOMG saw Phil Galfond square off with Rast, Haxton, Lamb and Adams, while Dwan and Cates were reminded of their lingering “Durrrr Challenge” on the second night of action, while Kornuth and Arieh made their Poker After Dark debut on the final night of play.
