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..

As it seems that you have cleared the Titan bonus, why don't you play on the other iPoker skins and take advantage of their bonuses?

Omatards are some of my favorite people.

Hmmm...maybe I should learn Omaha then...but I have a sneaking suspicion that I would become an Omatard rather than one who takes advantage of Omatards, lol!
