At the 2/2 at Hard Rock. One seat open and my Asian Kryptonite shows up and takes the only open seat

I got his ass though. He raises pre, bunch of callers, I checkraise him on the flop and we get it in

He picks up some equity on the turn but the river 6 and I bust him

Universe hates me

Lol, just lost a $600 all-in as a 93% favorite

He bet flop, bet turn, called my shove and said "if you have ace you are good" then binked the miracle 3 to fill up while a player we pushed out on the turn slammed the table cause he fills up bigger

You can't write this shit

Was down 200, but back to even. Game at a great pace for me, hopefully I can win with 93% equity next time lol

No bueno today, in for $500 and out for $500

The amount of spots where I have people positively crushed so bad they have less than 10% equity and still wiggle out of the trap has been fucking maddening the past few months

This keeps up I'm gonna be back to midget stripping!

Alright ladies!! We got a new dancer tonight here at The Cuban's Delight!! He says that, "He's the good thing with the small package..."

(Offstage) "No!!! The small thing with the GOOD package!! Come on!!! I'm getting fucked worse here already than those goddamn PLO maniacs!!! I'm going to smack you with my nut wrap when I'm done my set now!!!"

Dangnabit just missed a nice pot

Nit on my right raises pre to $15 from UTG

We call with :9c::8c::8h::7s:

Multiple callers to a flop of :qd::8d::5h:

Nit bets 35, we call, solid on my left calls, maniac next to act shoves for $250

Folds to nit who repots all-in for $900

We fold. Maniac has king-high fd, nit has AAQ3 and was just isolating maniac, no fd, he has a top set blocker

Turn....:8s: lol

granted i'm no pro, but i am just never folding middle set on this board, even moreso with an inside straight draw. it is also entirely possible i just suck at omaha.

With this you are dead against top set and in trouble against overpairs with flush draws or top 2/top and bottom. With the action you would have to think you are in trouble.

It depends on who your opponents are, PLO is a very nutted game

Non-nut flushes, straights, underfulls, etc can be real money burners in this game

The nit repotting is what got me out. Against other opponents I'd be more willing to get it in. Against him I may be drawing to the one out (plus my gutshot draw)

yep. and maybe i reload. this makes me think i should continue to steer clear of live omaha games.
