Event #2 at The WSOPE, in London, featured the $2,500 ½ Pot Limit Omaha ½ Pot Limit Hold’ Em format which is growing increasingly popular in the world of online poker. So, it was no surprise that Cajelais is a professional poker player at one of the few online poker rooms that offers the format: Full Tilt Poker.

The tournament consisted of a field of 158 of the strongest poker players in the world –the mixed events tend to draw fewer numbers, but better players. The win netted Cajelais his first major tournament win, and roughly $169,000. After taking down the title Cajelais had little time for celebration: He registered for Event #3 –the $5,000 PLO event– and quickly went to claim his seat, and hopefully start the process all over again!
