Cheers mate.

I decided to play a few Omaha and O8 Tournaments these last 2 days and we all know the variance is big in these games. The standard of play is so poor compared to cash tables so you got to deal with the swings, they are not a game i would recommend if you tilt easily.
The last 2 $12 O8 games i been crippled or KOd by a brutal river playing the hand as well as i can letting them putting the chips in behind.
 There are so many LAG players that i have witnessed in the few tournies i have played that i must try to play more of them as going over the hands where i have been cracked they have been drawing ultra slim in some cases less than 10%. And it still amazes me how players still will call down on just a low draw. So hopefully along with my sngs and cash tables i can sneak in a few tournaments and im hoping to at least FT a few this coming month, i will keep us updated if i manage it.

Hi Slim

I am one of the four that reads this lol, I am glad your health is good it must have been nice to recieve the news that you have only got to go every six months now.


On another subject I see that all our posting about improving the forum has come to nothing as yet.


People do not realise what a difficult game Omaha really is and I agree there are some real idiots out there .


Stay well.


Sylvia

Another week on and have had the luck where i have been able to play more.
I have had an up and down week, was very frustrating to miss out on the package to Barca finishing in 12th spot where my pocket 7s walked into AA sb v bb so that was a cooler.
Have had a few small cashes in tournaments in the week then i managed to win the $300 omaha rebuy which was a nice little boost.
Have hit the 600 mark in my sng challenge and have had a bad week playing them again i have walked into AA when i am getting short stacked and seem to be getting dealt a hand where i have to play in the situation.
I still need to slow down at times as even the donks hit hands at times and i dont need to be paying them off with medium hands.
One thing that still can send me crazy is when you get a maniac in a perfect spot and he then hits runner runner, or a miracle card to win the hand when you have him crushed on the flop.

Its a rough ride playing the tournaments and at times frustrating, prob played around 20 since the win above and over 75% of them i been knocked out by getting beaten by under pair hitting or getting called with them chasing a draw and getting there.
As long as i keep getting it in when im a % favourite to win the hand thats all we can do at the end of the day.
I did load up and try an  O8 proggresive KO tournament which i did enjoy as again you get the maniacs and donks playing it. Out of over 350 players i did manage to cash. I am hoping they bring this format over here.
And Grump its good to see you on the sng tables every now and then, i have over 2 thousand hands on you now and you play a solid game but looking at your stats i think you are playing a bit to tight when it gets to 5-6 players left and when we get below the 10 bb mark our shoves will get looked up by the big stacks and then we are prob only a 60-40 fav.
Anyhow good luck and post up how your getting on.

Wow another night of frustration bubbling 2 and getting deep in others only to be sucked out on.
I am going to go over my last few sessions to see if i can adjust my play or if i do need to just keep plugging away at what im doing.
Managed 1 cash on stars which do seem to have bigger payouts and they have much larger fields, so i may just only hit the odd 1 in here as this is a cold spell of nearly 40 tournaments since that win. I know the variance in omaha games is huge so hopefully it starts swinging in favour of the maths.
Good luck in your games and hopefully i post up a more positive post next where i get to a FT.

200 game update. hardley a game goes by now where i don't have at least 2 players with notes. they are invaluable when it comes to who's shoving with air from the small blind.
yet to play you heads up slim, in fact i don't think we have made the money together in the same game. on late shift this week so only play for an hour after work each night. i tried to play in the morning before work but the games were taking an age to fill up so i didn't bother

a pair of melons beats anything

Nice results Grump. And your right we havent both cashed when we have been in same game.
This last week i have been busy trying to help out an old friend who is going through a bad patch and is crashing at mine until he gets sorted out.
Am hoping i get some games in later in the week.
Good luck in your games and hopefully see a few more of you in the sngs.
