                        Hello Admins,

                        Event 13 (Ice Hockey) is Omaha H/L.

                        The PM game is limit. The RM game is no limit.

                        Was this intentional?

                        Thanks.

                          Hello Annie,

                          From time to time the line ups of real money and play money games may be different in some way such as starting stacks, round times, game type, and so on

                          Enjoy your games and very good luck in the series

                          Thanks for being part of PSO, and Best of Luck at the Tables

                          Brian
