I heart PLO
... because too many people fall in love with their naked AAxx, and I can call with about anything and snap them off like a twig.

Here's an example:
Omaha Pot Limit ($0.25/$0.50)

I'm in the CO position with 3d 6s 5d 3h, and there is one caller to me. I've got 4 working cards (so what if they're low, this is all about flop texture and I have a good stealin' chance), so I raise 4xBB to a monster $2. SB, BB and limper all call.

*** FLOP *** [3s 2d 7c]

Checked to me, I bet pot ($6.20) with my set + gutshot. BB raises pot ($18.60 to $24.80), I reraise all-in, BB calls for his whole stack.

And guess what the BB had to put in his whole stack? Ac Jd 9d Ah. Yes, that's just AA with no redraws. No redraws == death in omaha.

*** SUMMARY ***
Board [3s 2d 7c 2c Qs]
BB: shows [Ac Jd 9d Ah] (two pair, Aces and Deuces)
maigrey: shows [3d 6s 5d 3h] (a full house, Threes full of Deuces)
maigrey collected $117 from pot

... and you'd think this is an uncommon occurrence, but as I was talking with felicialee1 for about 20 minutes, I snapped off 2 other people for their whole stacks, too.


(Also, thanks go out to on_thg, gamec, and drizz for entertaining me last night and praising my boobs in the .01/.02 PLO waters last night)

Guility of over raising with aces... but that was PRE-flop, suited, and a wheel card.

Oh wait, we weren't playing PLO8, were we? Dum dum dumb duumb.

I'll continue to come back for more lessons of course ;)

they were one sooted, not double, if I recall correctly. and the 1 wheel isn't bad, really - what counts in PLO is connecting cards. You had some working cards, so they weren't quite naked AAxx.

But yeah, you suck, no boobies for you.

Talking about snapping things off like twigs gives me pause, Maigrey - but congrtulations on a joyful and lucrative outing. ;)

I might have to venture into the PLO waters one of these days, on the play money circuit. Got any book recommendations on it?

On the play money circuit you might want to peddle the nuts. I'd suggest the supersystem II section to get started though.

Thanks for the reading suggestion. I am SO far behind in my reading that I might just go learn by doing again. The good players love that. ;)

boobs = good.

Non-blogging nits = bad.

0.01/0.02 PLO = fun.

Have to agree with THG.

B00bs = very, very good.
PLO for pennies = a blast.

I enjoyed lsat night and hope to do it again soon.

I'm sorry, I had no idea that you were a blogger when I was razzing you! :)

No sweat on my end, I'm not always sure I'm a blogger either.
