GGPoker launches OmahaSquad and Omaha Series


GGPoker has launched the OmahaSquad, its team composed of some of the best Omaha experts, which will, in addition to representing the poker room both live and online, provide a focal point for the growing community of Omaha cash games and tournaments’ aficionados.

Germany-based Sasha Liu, cash game player at heart and respected player at Omaha tables, is joining Fernando Fernando ‘JNandezPoker’ Habegger as a founding member of OmahaSquad. “When GGPoker approached me to be part of the newly-formed OmahaSquad it was an easy decision for me,” said Sasha Liu. “From our very first conversation, it was clear to me that GGPoker shared my passion for Omaha, and I look forward to working closely with ‘JNandez’ and the rest of the team to grow this great game I love so much”, he said.

The poker room also announces the Omaholic Series, which runs from Sunday, March 14 through Sunday, March 28. The tournament series boasts at least $7,000,000 in prize pool guarantees, with several headline events. “In recent months, the poker team has worked closely with ‘JNande’z in designing our first Omaholics Series. Omaha is such a fantastic game and we look forward to collaborating with both Sasha and JNandez to further enhance our offering and promote Omaha to a wider audience across the entire GGPoker Network”, said John Scanlon, Director of Sponsorships and Live Events at GGPoker.
