There are less than four days left until the end of the Omaholic Series. We tell about the main winners, the remaining events and conclude how successful the first series of Omaha at GGPOKEROK was.
Kamel Mohammad is the main triumphant of the Omaholic Series
PLO is a highly varied discipline. And Omaha (NL Postflop) is even more dispersive. Therefore, the consistent results at the Omaholic Series look impressive.
The coolest in the tournaments of the series is the player from Ukraine Kamel Mohammad. This guy started an account on GG in the summer of 2020 (according to SharkScope), but was waiting for the right moment to start promoting. And for 28 events of the series, he managed to boost his profit from 0 to $ 350K!

- $ 217.8K – First Place $ 10,300 Event # 53: Omaholic SHR

Triumphants from GG Omaha Squad: “JNandez” and “Minthon”
By the start of the GG series, a new team of professional players, Omaha Squad, was presented to the public, which included:
- Sasha Liu – more than $ 300K in prize money in live tournaments (every fourth dollar is earned in Omaha events).
- Fernando “JNandez” Habegger – Omaha professional since 2010, author of the book “Mastering Small Stakes PLO”, poker coach, cash Omaha specialist at limits from $ 10 / $ 20 to $ 25 / $ 50.
- Mikhail “Minthon” Yakovlev – a player with twelve years of experience, a PLO specialist, a streamer with a good sense of humor and a cat lover.
At first glance, it might seem that GG has assembled a mega-skill team of four maps.
«JNandez» brought in $ 1,050 Side Event: Omaholic High Roller with 65 entrances (+ $ 17K). According to SharkScope, his chart goes up $ 150K.
«Minthon» brought in $ 525 Event # 65: Omaholic Dounty Bash HR with 117 entries (+ $ 12K). However, on Sharkscope “Minthon” rolls in – $ 2K.

How the Omaholic Series goes: general results of the series and major future events
GGPOKEROK were the first to play a major streak in Omaha. The network received additional criticism for the NL Postflop format. But, despite all the evil tongues, the series is very successful. Expensive tournaments with practically no overlays, guarantees are broken by half. Overlays are rare in tournaments with low buy-ins under $ 21.
The Mini Main Event went according to plan, but the Main Event remains intriguing.
AT $ 55 Mini Main Event 10,508 Registrations, the guarantee is beaten by $ 31K. The final table will be played out on March 27 at 21:00 Moscow time with a stream on YouTube.
AT $ 400 Main Event 1,052 entry, $ 604K overlay, but there are still 16 entries ahead. Day 2 will play out on March 28 at 22:35 GMT.
There is also another $ 10,300 Super High Roller tournament ahead (starting March 28 at 22:10 Moscow time).
