From $4,000 to a million dollars in a week


Lithuanian poker player Grazvydas Kontautas broke the $200/$400 PLO stake in the 7-Day No Rathole format at Americas Cardroom last week. At one table during this time, he managed to go from $4,000 to $1,014,704!


2,400 buy-ins in a few days

Omaha has been associated in recent years with Phil Galfond's challenge or nosebleed action on GGNetwork. Last week, thanks to Phil Nagy (CEO of the Winning Poker Network), we learned that seven-figure PLO can be won elsewhere.

On his Twitter account, he shared on Friday:

The screenshot attached to the message shows a lonely poker player with the nickname "Grazvydas" and a fantastic stack of $1,014,704. This situation becomes even more unreal if you consider that the 7-Day No Rathole format is available only to Americas Cardroom players. Players first sit down with a stack of 10bb and then, within 7 days, return to the table with the same amount of money they left before.

Hence, Grazvydas Kontautas had a maximum of a week to go from 10BB to 2,536BB playing Omaha at the table. Understandably, no one wanted to join him.

7-Day No Rathole

7-Day No Rathole NL2k

Omaha and Hold'em are played in 9-max format at more than a dozen stakes from $0.05/$0.10 to $200/$400. Usually, only one table per limit is available in the lobby. There is no much traffic honestly.

This format's main feature is its attractiveness for poker fans who want to get a big stack starting with push-fold 10 big blinds.

For example, at the NL2k limit, five grinders were sitting with stacks of more than 200BB. Therefore, eminent regulars also show interest in these tables, for example, "Grazvydas" or the famous Laszlo "omaha4rollz" Buytas, who got a $150,000 stack:
