The Big Wrap PLO Festival Pot-Limit Omaha extravaganza concluded in a week of wild PLO action, which ran from 1st till 8th April in King’s Resort. The Big Wrap Main Event, with a buy-in of €2,350, that ran from 5th to 8th April, attracted 516 entries and generated a prize pool of €1,078,440.

Spain’s Lautaro Guerra won the first-place prize of €209,221. He defeated well-known pros like Lauri Sakari, Tomasz Kozub and Peter Muelbeck at the final table.

The Big Wrap PLO festival was the icing on the cake, following up on the major event, the World Series of Poker International Circuit, which ran from 14th March to 1st April. Local star, Martin Kabrhel was the winner of the Main Event of the WSOPC, winning his fifth circuit ring and €190,000.

Jagdeep Singh At The Event

Jagdeep Singh was one of three Indian contenders in action. Singh is one of India’s most accomplished Pot-Limit Omaha players who has several scores in both domestic and International PLO events to his name.

These include winning the INR 15K Pot Limit Omaha 6-Max at the 2017 DOT February Edition for INR 5.80 Lakhs, a 3rd place finish in the £330 Pot Limit Omaha 6-Max Double Chance at the 2016 WPT National UK PartyPoker, Nottingham for £2,300 (~₹2.09 Lakhs) and a 9th place finish in Event #64 – $1,500 No Limit Hold’em/Pot Limit Omaha – 8 Handed at the 48th WSOP for a career-best $20,181 (~₹14.03 Lakhs).

Singh had the 10th largest stack once Day 2 began. He almost made it to Day 3, but was, unfortunately, one of the last ones to be eliminated. Singh finished in 20th place in the Main Event for €10,677 (~₹8.37 Lakhs).
