  1. I don't believe you should be 3-betting this flop. Supersystem gives some good advice on the subject.You are jamming into a flop in which you will be beaten on the turn by 8 diamonds (not including the 6), three 2's, three 4's and three 7's, putting you up against 17 outs twice. It is generally prudent strategy to not jam into pots in which you only have or likely have a shot at half the pot at best. Now had the flop been 2-7-J with 2 of one suit, then I might advocate jamming, as one of the draws is not present. But jamming into a pot with multiple draws against you is chip spewage, unles
  2. Since I get away with this every day, I must disagree.
  3. I am not agreeing or disagreeing with anything you say (except for position being overrated, AND your claim to be able to outplay your opponents from any position (you must play only the donks like I do, and not seasoned players to be making a claim like that)), however, I am curious as to your statement that 5 6 7 8 is statistically a much bigger winner than 5 6 7 9. I assume you are not running these hands against each other to come up with that...If indeed that is correct (your statement that is, not that you possibly ran them against each other), that it an excellent little tidbit that an
  4. Position is waaaaay overrated in Omaha. I can outplay my opponents from any position on the table; being on the button is honestly unimportant to me, other than pre-flop where I may get in cheap. After the flop, I honestly don't care. Play the right starting hands and position is almost meaningless in Omaha.And there is a BIG difference when playing hands such as 5-6-7-8 and 5-6-7-9. It may not seem like it, but if you run simulations on those two hands, the 5-6-7-8 is statistically a much bigger winner. I think this is what rich is getting at. For your cards to truly all be "working tog
  5. From on the button, you are folding here? I know the ace isnt suited, but still, all my cards are working together, and I have position... :?All you've got is a baby flush draw and a straight draw than can easily be beat. Not the strongest of hands. You can play this hand, but understand that when you do, this is a loose play. a TAG is probably not playing this hand. I'm probably more likely to play that hand in a tourney than I would in a cash game where the blinds never increase. I can wait for a better hand than that.And I should qualify all of this by telling you my VPIP over 20,000
  6. 1. I wouldn't have even been in the hand. That's an 8/b hand, not a high hand.2. I would have also thrown in a value bet with that many checks to me.
  7. Agreed. Agreed. Your only re-draws here are back door flush draws, neither of which are the nuts. Somebody has got to be on a set here. If the board doesn't pair on the turn, ram and jam.
  8. Well, I just ran some numbers which I found pretty interesting. Here were the approximate odds on this hand...1. A -3 -K -A Hi:29.46%Tie:0.01%EE: 0.295 2. Q -J -10 -9 Hi:42.70%Tie:0.01%EE: 0.427 3 . A -4 -5 -6 Hi:27.83%EE: 0.278 Kind of interesting, eh? I just guessed on the hand the other guy might have pushed all-in with.
  9. If you read Ray Zee's book, he does discuss this. TJ Cloutier also goes into this in detail.You are raising a pot because you either want to build the pot or thin the field. Now, if your inention on thinning the field does not work, that is not necessarily a negative. What you're saying is, "I can play for higher stakes on the hands that I have an advantage in."As KVOM said, I believe this is more applicable when playing cash stakes or when the tourney blinds are still relatively low.This is a good topic starter because I just started researching this very thing today (the EV of this play).
  10. I had an identical hand last night. I had the A-Q and assumed my opponent was on a flush draw/straight draw. Oops. He had the case queens. The real problem here is position; we don't have it. Secondly, there is no chance all of our outs we would normally count here are live. With 6 people seeing a flop, there is no way there are two Aces left in the deck. Would this be a tough laydown? Absolutely. To feel really good about your hand the rest of the way, we would have to avoid any King, Jack, Ten or heart (your hearts could be good, but again, very dangerous thinking with 6 people in a
  11. There's a very simple reason as to why you don't jam a pot before the flop in Omaha: you are never a big favorite pre-flop and are often just better than a coin flip.Now, you can often argue, "Well, I got my money in with the best hand." True, but you are taking a big gamble. Your call of his raise here was a no-brainer; you were more than priced in. S0 overall, this was just an unfortunate loss.In general, remember that Omaha is an "after the flop" game.
  12. I think you found just about every bad Omaha player on the internet and invited them to play in this hand. I've seen a lot of bad plays, but this was really something to watch.
  13. This is an easy fold. You are 3.75-1 against to hit your hand and are only getting 2-1 on your money in that spot. At best you are playing for half the pot, justifying the call even less. Don't put a 3rd of your stack in the pot on a draw to half the pot. And if he holds A -2 , it's going to be a blood bath.
  14. I would completely agree. I am a winning player at both Omaha and NL Hold Em, but my swings at NL were much wilder. A good Omaha player will not see much variance other than in the short term.
