ok a 565 buyin in the wsop sounds kinda low, and since this is a popular game, pot limit Omaha a little bit surprised to see only 2400 or so players, sure this is a big number, but with such a buyin I wouldn't be surprised seeing 10k or more entrants.

These pot limit omaha events always seem to attract a massive entry and this was no exception with over 2,400 entries. I love watching these guys play because i know how difficult a game it is and they always make it look so easy

Because of this Pot Limit there were only 2400 players in this Omaha Tournament. This limitation makes these players not to join in these tournaments. All in is very good for all gamblers and this is unacceptable for many players. Patience is not for everyone. I congratulate all the final table players.
