Welcome to our coverage of Event #25: $5,000 Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better.
Last year, Joe Cassidy bested a star-studded final table and a field of 256 players to capture a $294,777 first-place prize. The 2013 World Series of Poker is in the midst of a very heavy Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better portion as this event is sandwiched between Event #20: $1,500 Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better, Event #29: $5,000 H.O.R.S.E., and Event #31: $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-low 8-or-Better.
We expect a top-notch field to take part in what is the largest pure Omaha Hi-Low 8-or-Better event of the summer, so be sure to keep it here throughout the day as the quest to award another bracelet begins. Play is scheduled to begin at 5pm local time, about two hours from now, and eight one-hour levels will be played.
Until then, check out updates on the other events going on and also catch up on the other happenings at the Rio as Lynn Gilmartin gives you a rundown in our June 13th preview.
