PCA 2013: WSOP runner-up John Racener takes down the PLO Big O8

John Racener finished runner-up to Team PokerStars Pro Jonathan Duhamel in the 2010 WSOP Main Event for $5,545,955. Yesterday he went one better than that, notching up a win in the PLO Big 08 (albeit for a slightly less life-changing $16,000). Allen Kessler and Leif Force both notched up their second final table of the festival but neither have quite been able to make it to the heads-up.

Big O8 is five card Omaha.
