World Series of Poker Europe started a few days ago and the first Omaha pot-limit bracelet has just been awarded. Dash Dudley from Michigan won his second bracelet with the €51,600 prize. Dudley’s been playing poker since 2002, and this summer he took first place in the $10,000 Omaha pot-limit tournament, which brought him $1,086,967.
Dudley entered the final table fourth in chips and managed to survive through many ups and downs throughout the day. It wasn’t an easy final table by any means for the PLO cash game specialist, who dropped down to as low as seven big blinds in three-handed play after he lost a few pots to Denis Drobina.
“My opponents were very very tough,” Dudley told tournament reporters after the win. “This is one of the toughest final tables, if not, the toughest final table that I played. There were guys with a bracelet, there were players that had won PLO tournaments before. There was a lot of experience, there wasn’t really any soft spot at the final table. Everyone was really experienced and it was cool to play with people from all over the world. I think I was the only guy from the U.S. that made the final table. It was a very diverse final table and it was fun playing with some different styles.”
