Day 3 of the 2009 Melbourne Poker Championships was Omaha day with 50 players fronting up at 10am for the second event of the morning series. The prize pool reached $4,500 with the top six finishing in the black. Rainer Quel snuck into 6th place but in the end it was Brett Watson who overcame Ulfgeir Hansen heads-up to take it down.

The evening session saw 150 entrants for Event #4: $175 Pot Limit Omaha with the championship title up for grabs. While PLO is an action game, again the end result wasn’t decided until the early hours of the morning when Jim Sachinidis got the better of Sam Jessop to capture the trophy and $6,070 in prize money.
