I'm not playing that much poker these days, and I'm actually staying away from Hold 'em, playing mostly Razz on Full Tilt, or O8 on Party for low stakes so I can practice these "other games" Felicia talks about.

She wasn't kidding when she says you can just play the rock solid nuts and you'll get paid.

I have AdQd KcQc in the big blind, so hell yah, I raise so the other 6 people in have to pay something. Cut off re-raises, so I cap that baby, and look at a beooooutiful flop of:

5h Kd Jd

I bet, I get everyone calling me. Turn is a Td. Chaching! I have the rock solid mortal nuts - no low is going to hit the board, and quads can't even beat me, so I check, hoping someone else has a worse flush and bets. Of course, guy two to my left does so, I get 3 folders, so I check raise, and get not one, but two callers! That's right, the guy to my left cold calls two bets.

I don't remember what the river is, but I bet it, and I get two callers. Guy to my direct left has 2 pair (!!), guy to his left has a baby flush.

That's right, kiddies, ship that $93 pot all to MEEEEEE!!

Just like in Razz.... Patience is the key to O8 at Party. Don't let yourself get tired and start chasing 1/2 pots and runner runner draws with the rest of the yahoos. You can wait to hit that nut low/nut flush combo and they'll pay you off.

Let me know when you're playing and I'll hop in to join ya :)
