I was thoroughly frustrated with all forms of gambling except Blackjack and Video Poker tonight.. so I decide to play some O8 on Stars. I have 97 crap in the BB and the flop comes 978 all clubs. So I know I am fucked but I call a bet. Two other people are in. I am going to fold the turn. The turn is a 7. SWEET! I am like YA BOY! However, my good O8 buddy Trauma is uh uh sir.. as I blissfully cap .. uhhh SIR!!! Yeah? He could have 88 or 99.. OHHHHHH! FUCK! Ok, I will check-call the river. Umm.. hey, it’s a 9.. That’s good, right? YA!!!! I won! Oh, and the other guys had the flush and the 88. The following conversation ensues:
EaglesFan: nice catch
EaglesFan: good odds
Sir: Really, I just started playing Omaha today
Sir: How do you calculate odds?
The table breaks out in LMAO comments.. Oh well, I aim to entertain. Yes, I know I got luck, and yes, I know I should have folded. Oh well. I actually did think 97 with the 977 board might be good though.. never thought about 88.. oh well.. I am up $25 as we speak so I may try this more often..
So.. I moved over to Titan to see if the Omatards are as bad.. WORSE! Come to Titan, world of the fishies.. I made about $50 playing Omaha for an hour or so.. maybe I need a HE break..
