LOVING Omaha Hi/Lo PL Wazzam! It is FUN. I doubled and trippled up my buyin today. Something I never do in HE. Well not alot at least. I have brought the roll back to $360 since I started playing O8 and $150 offline. Not a bad start. The best part is I enjoy the game. It is fun as hell. Challenging. The risk seems low. The rewards high. The best part: I have no expectations. Yeah, I assume I am going to win, but if my AA23 gets cracked, who cares. It is Omaha. It is SUPPOSED to happen. It is THE EXPECTATION. When suckout on someone, it is not a suckout. It is the game. You are SUPPOSED to do it.

Like tonight. Someone called me an Omatard because I called his $9 bet. I do not think he bothered to check the hand history. With one card to go I had the Nut high straight and nut low draws. He had a set of tens. I am NOT sure but when I have like 24 cards in the deck that help me, and you bet $9 into a pot of nine dollars giving me 3:1 odds .. I think I should.. whats the word. Gamble. Although with that kind of return I hate to call it that. I hit my NUT high straight btw, and there was no low SCOOOOOP Dere it is!

I also tried the Poker Stars 11/1 Rebuy. 40K Guarenteed. I finished around 300th. Ouch. Out of the money. Oh well. I had a short stack, pushed with AK s000ted, QQ calls, and I do not improve. Trauma finished a little ahead of that. He got busted AJ vs 55. I wanted him to slow down at the end of the tourney. The money was approaching. The blinds were not that bad. Ease into it brother. Ease. However I can not say aggressive play is bad. Just not the way I do it these days with 15-20xBB.

Some cool stats. I get 250-300 visitors a day! Thanks guys! A lot of unique/first time (last time?) visitors too. Sweet.

Damn it...now you are making me wish that I would skip work today to play some PLO8... which table/limit was this??

also...how are the LO8 and PLO8 at the pokerroom/skins? I am thinking about going over there with some rakeback (Eurobet? Hollywood poker?)...

Pokerroom's O8 is mostly limited to limit. I don't remember there being a lot of PL games going.

Full Tilt has a group of regulars playing PLO8 but some of them are GAMBOOOOLERS which makes for some heafty swings.

Just keep the game fun man and we'll work on getting that VP$IP down a bit ;)

Add another (now regular) reader from Germany. I really enjoy your stories about poker ever since I found your blog via the saturday tourneys (Dr. Pauly), especially that you write about good and bad hands! Keep it up...!

Pokerroom has a 1/1 and 2/2 blind structure PL game that has started running every once in a while. It is getting more common to see it but I don't play it that often. I stay agressive baby and I don't mind taking the coin flip for a 55K pot at that point so I could sail into the money, not slide into the money. I am in it to win it.
