In a break between playing high-stakes cash games, launching a poker site and preparing for a new addition to the family, Phil Galfond found time to play in this tournament. The victory in this event brought him the third gold bracelet WSOP and $ 567,788 . Eventually, event # 60: $ 10,000 Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo 8 or Better Championship was attended by 237 players, and the prize pool was $ 2,227,800.
Phil Galfond called his victory unexpected, since he has little experience in playing PLO8. He also said that he had never played online in PLO8. In the interview, Phil said that emotions after this victory are similar to the emotions he experienced after winning his second bracelet. And that with the first victory, in the WSOP tournaments, there is little that can be compared.
