FU Riggs Al is the Man

AlCantHang convinced me to try a little LO8 last night. Also some book writing pro wrote about how easy these games are. I spend about an hour and made three buyins. It could have been better as I was up FOUR buyins for a while but I gave one back. Some interesting hands were where I scooped the HI with 55. Yes. You heard me. I had a nut low and a nut flush redraw. I was calling bets but not raising or going crazy with only one side locked and three people in the hand. My pair of fives held up as the Hi. If that is not a good game I do not know what is. I also took second in a $22 SNG.

One thing I noticed to be true is that even being a little loose can have a big effect. Making those marginal calls is not where the money is in this game. Sure you will give up some winning hands but it is better to bail early if the board does not hit you perfectly.

The suckouts are pretty brutal too. Like the AAAK hand vs AAAT with the fucking ten hitting on the river. Ouchie. However when you end up scooping like 8-10 hands in a split pot game you have to love it. Sure your nut straight on the turn is going to get run down when the board pairs and flushes on the river but that is alright.

I also have something to say to Hoyazo: "Baby Talk Baby Talk It's a Wonder you can Walk". Stop your whining you retard. Your sounding more like me every day. Fucking man up and quit your crying or I will come over there and smack you.

I plan on playing the Mookie tonight and doing at least a short buyin to the 1/2 deep stack game that Poker Gnome is putting on tonight. Which probably means that instead of a nice 3 buyin profit night I will probably blow some cash but it is all in fun. Really the only two MTT games I want to play lately are the Mookie and Riverfuckers.

I am not sure how much I want to play HU. On the the one hand it would be fun proving just how dominant I am against bloggers. What better way than humiliating them heads up? I mean it is perfect. On the other hand I really do not like HU MTT style games. I like 1-shot HU SNG format but not the whole beat the crap out of your opponent and then wait three hours until the other slowpokes finish. Ah well.

That is all.

What site were you using that dealt out 6 aces between two players?

Online O8's awesome! The donkeys are prevalent. (I prefer PLO8 over the limit variety myself, but same principles.)

In fact, ran into Drizz at the $26 $3k Guar PL08 MTT on FTP last night, and we both made the cash. It's ridiculous how many villains go to war with only a shot at half the pot, or with draws to just the second nuts, etc. Ridiculously +EV!

I am munging the board with my hole cards Al. AA3 was the flop, then like 9 on the turn and T on the river for the lose. Boo me. If this was PLO8 I would have been totally fucked as AT would have jammed the flop and instead of costing me 2 bets it would have cost me a stack.

LO8 is deffo better than PLO8, the amount of ridiculous suckouts in that game is sick, and like you pointed out, at least it aint costing you a stack every time it happens. On the plus side when you hit the nuts the donks just keep callin you down.

LO8 flat lines the tough beats over time vs. losing 3 stacks in an hour like in PL/NLO8.

Careful with the variance. That's all I'll say.
