WSOP Event #3: And now for something completely different

wsop2009_thn.gifWhile yesterday's $40,000 no limit event was a day for the high rollers and the elite of the modern game, today the action opens up for the masses with the start of the $1,500 Omaha Hi/low 8 or Better tournament. The buy-in may be considerably smaller, but the end result is still a WSOP bracelet and the prestige that goes with it. That's why you'll find senior Team PokerStars Pros like Daniel Negreanu and Barry Greenstein in the field, mixing it up with the great poker public taking a shot at inking their place in the WSOP history books.

This event will be a change of pace from the $40K - which starts again for day two in a few minutes - and each player begins with 4,500 chips. Entries are currently showing 918, and we'll bring you news of our players' progress throughout the day.
