Today's field, although the biggest Omaha 8 or better tournament field in the history of poker, is riddled with big names. It is more likely to find a table with two or more known names than it is one without one. But one table in particular has become especially difficult.
We just reported on a hand that featured Vitaly Lunkin and Alex Kravchenko. However, Mike Matusow, a bracelet winner in Limit Omaha 8 or better in 2002, is seated between the two players. But the star power didn't stop there. Chau Giang, another previous Omaha 8 or better champion, just sat down with a healthy stack at the very same table. Allen Kessler, who was sitting at a nearby table, commented on how tough the table must be. Matusow quipped "That's probably why I still have chips left. If the table was a buncha idiots, I'd be gone."
