Adam Hendrix and Bryce Yockey are among those who've earned tournament victories in the second PokerGO Tour Pot-Limit Omaha Series of the year.

The series, which began at the PokerGO Studio in Las Vegas on Oct. 19, features 10 tournaments and is highlighted by the $25,200 Pot-Limit Omaha Championship (Oct. 29).

In March, Lautaro Guerra Cabrerizo of Spain took down the championship event for $518,750, beating Ren Lin heads-up for the title.

Event #6: $10,100 Pot-Limit Omaha Dealer's Choice kicked off Monday with 65 players and played down to the final five before calling it a night. Alex Foxen and Joao Simao were among those at the final table who will be shooting for the $182,000 first place prize on Tuesday.

In the completed events, five different players have captured tournament wins, starting with Matthew Wantman, who took down $5,100 Pot-Limit Omaha to begin the series, beating out 172 entrants to win $150,500. He defeated Jim Collopy heads up to finish off the tournament.

The second PLO series victory went to Eelis Parssinen, one of Finland's top tournament players ever. Parssinen conquered the $7,600 Pot-Limit Omaha Bounty event for $149,000, plus some bounties, outlasting a field of 149 entries. Since winning Event #2, he added two cashes, giving him three through the first five tournaments.

Stephen Hubbard took down the third tournament of the series — $10,100 Pot-Limit Omaha. In doing so, he beat a field of 102 entrants for $231,750. Hubbard, who hails from Utah, also cashed for nearly $30,000 in a separate PLO series event and only had about $150,000 in prior live tournament cashes, according to The Hendon Mob.

Hendrix was the fourth winner when he took down the 101-player $15,100 Pot-Limit Omaha Progressive Bounty for $172,170 plus bounties. The win brought the Alaska native to nearly $5.3 million in lifetime The Hendon Mob results. He's become one of the top high rollers in the world over the past couple years.

Speaking of crushers, Yockey bested all 114 runners in the $10,100 Pot-Limit Omaha, and that paid $239,400. He defeated Kyle Merron in a heads-up match to finish off the tournament. The win moved the World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet winner to just over $4 million in live tournament cashes.

The second PokerGO Tour Pot-Limit Omaha Series of the year still has five more events to settle, including the final table in Event #6. Action will then resume on Thursday with Event #7: $10,100 Pot-Limit Omaha.
