What does everyone think of the 100 Pot Limit Omaha game scheduled for Friday 31st October at Star City?

Loads of people keep asking us for Omaha tournaments to be included in the festivals we organise, so we decided to put one in the 100,000 poker classic. I could only see 6 other big Omaha tournaments on the calendar between now and Christmas and half of those have a buy-in of 500 or greater. It will be interesting to see how many runners we get, but I know a number of players have expressed an interest.
