Default My Omaha Experiment

Hey guys you know that I decided to spend a week playing Omaha. Well I probably will not dedicate an entire week because I did not check game selection because right now it is pretty poor. I would have to play $2000PL and I am not comfortable doing that yet so it is going to be whenever I can find a decent $1000PL game.

I played about 500 hands today and I must say the game has become much more sophisticated since my last long run at Omaha (about a year ago). I have played some since then but not enough to be able to get a total grip on it. No more just blind brute force but more of a finesse style of a game. So far I am down $2400 but feel like I have played absolutely great. I have not put much money in good (meaning ahead not necessarily a favorite) but in the $10000 in pots or so that decided my wins and losses I came away with about $1500 of it. I just ran horribly. I would guess that my overall equity in those pots was about $4500-$5k but it could be a little more or less.

I have also realized that I have a lot to learn and for the first time in a long time just sat and watched a table for a little while trying to spot fish and pick up some patterns. I must say it feels weird sitting in a game that I do not expect to be a winner in.

I have found the players to be much weaker at the O8 games IMO.

Yeah i am going to make sure I play some of that as well. That makes perfect sense though because a lot of regular Omaha players stink at the split games.
