For First Time in Eight Years, PokerStars Schedules Omaha-Exclusive Tournament Series For First Time in Eight Years, PokerStars Schedules Omaha-Exclusive Tournament Series

PokerStars has scheduled a week-long tournament series dedicated entirely to the Omaha poker variant.

It comes just days after the operator tweaked the betting structure for Omaha. Under the new rules, antes for PLO games will not be counted towards the pre-flop pot calculation.

The series kicked off just a day after rival GGPoker concluded its Omaha-exclusive “Omaholics Series.”

Compared to GG’s rival series, PokerStars’ Omaha week is a smaller affair, featuring total guarantees of approximately $600,000. Prize money is spread across 24 numbered events, with a few of those coming in Low and High variants, totaling 32 tournaments.

Buy-ins start from $11 and top out at $530.
