Welcome to Day 1 of Event #14: $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi-Low

Calen McNeil won this event last year.

We're set to kick off Day 1 of Event #14: $1,500 Limit Omaha Hi-Low here at the 2014 World Series of Poker at noon local time. This event is for the Omaha Eight-or-Better everyman, and we should see a sizable field here for this ever-popular game.

Last year, Canadian Calen McNeil scooped and chopped his way to a first-place prize of $277,274, topping a field of 1,014 runners to claim the gold bracelet. He prevailed over notable grinder C.K. Hua (over $3 million in tournament cashes) after a heads-up match that went so long, the players ended play on what was supposed to be the final day only to come back and play heads up for four more hours the next day. McNeil topped a final table that included the likes of Stephen Chidwick, Todd Brunson, and John Monnette.

Players will begin with 4,500 in tournament chips with the blinds at 25/50. We'll be playing 60-minute levels, with 20-minute breaks after every two levels, and a 90-minute break for dinner later this evening. Don't go anywhere, as we at PokerNews will bring you all of the relevant live updates from another WSOP event.
