Default Omaha bust thread

Difference between Omaha and Hold'em is that in Hold'em it is possible to win a a hand when you're all-in against a big stack. In Omaha, that is rarely possible.


Did I do anything wrong here?

Reads and odds. (IMHO, the shortstack didn't jam, he just overcalled, giving me better odds.) I know that the shortstack is a fish who is willing to gamble and I think the other player knew the same thing so he wanted to isolate the fish with his raise.


As I have the nut straight draw on a rainbow flop and J5 two-paired I only fear J8 and 88 on the flop (I block fives so 55 is very unlikely) and I block the jacks, making potential bonus draws for higher jack-based two-pairs (turned/rivered JK/JA) less likely.

On the other hand, maybe the other players thought I was a fish so they were happy to put their chips in once they saw I raised the flop

well, what exactly did you put your opponents on?

this is one of those odd spots where you have two ways to win and they both suck. you only have an 8 out straight draw, and you're going to chop when that draw lands a significant percentage of the time. you have two pair but they're extremely vulnerable. JXXX likely has at least 2 and often 3 overs.

your raise is a bit meh, but when your man cold 3bets over the top of you at least half your hand is busted. he either has a set or a better draw 100% of the time. SB is not airballing here, he bet 3/4 pot and was happy to play against a raiser and a reraiser. there isn't really room for him to be being a fish here, he either has draws, or he has >AJ.

you were in about as good a shape as you could possibly hope to be when the cards got turned over. you caught them both at the bottom of their range and you still only had what, 40% equity?

JXXX overs only include two reasonable overs (A&K) right? I admit that I don't take sixes into account and I don't consider runner-runner full houses.

I try to make a pokerstove estimate by isolating the features of the holdings into fewer categories:

9,118,859 games 12.661 secs 720,232 games/sec

Board: 5s Jd 8h
Dead:

equity win tie pots won pots tied
Hand 0: 16.897% 02.11% 14.79% 191988 1348785.50 { Ts9s }
Hand 1: 03.829% 03.75% 00.08% 342322 6866.00 { 7s3s }
Hand 2: 27.548% 00.00% 27.55% 0 2512061.50 { Jc5d }
Hand 3: 14.791% 00.00% 14.79% 0 1348785.50 { Tc9d }
Hand 4: 34.315% 06.77% 27.55% 617104 2512061.50 { Jh5h }
Hand 5: 02.620% 02.54% 00.08% 232019 6866.00 { 3d2s }


Hence, I had approximately 27+15 = 42% equity, so the "Blah blah blah KC is right" signature makes sense.

EDIT: I see the power of backdoor flush draws in Omaha. Lesson learnt.

all overs are reasonable in omaha. even a 6 can break you, and an 8 is pretty close to the eschaton. consider also a hand like AKJT. so, yeah, a ten is a chop, but it's an ugly chop. he's drawing to AKQ, you're drawing to a 7.

we don't have to improve our opponents hands by much to make this an ugly spot. just give J532 the queen of diamonds rather than the deuce of spastics and you scoop less than 1% of the time, chopping about 50% for equity of 26%

even if you do have an edge here, which you might if they're bad enough, it's too small an edge to be throwing your entire stack behind, especially when there's a reasonable chance someone is going to bust.

google for omaha equity calculator. you scoop 15.17% and chop 50.30%. you could refine this to take sidepots into account but who has time for this kind of nonsense.

We have now wasted enough time due to a runner-runner flush.
Next time I make a bad play I know I shouldn't post it

well, if you know it's a bad play then you would probably prefer to keep it quiet.

it's surprising how many "bad beats" are really just bad play though.
