Hey guys,

I started 4 days ago my Pokerstars adventure, putting all my bankroll on PS and have some management there.
The way it began is devastating, losing over 35 dollars.
It's not too much I know - but I hate losing almost 9% of my bankroll.
Especially that I play good Omaha most of the times... I'm losing everything :
For example:
AAJJ double suit all in versus AA10J one suit preflop. He gets his flush... (lost 7 dollars)

another hand:

I don't know maybe I had to play it differently Confused but I know he was a big fish.
I really don't understand his play - calling to be pot committed and hit a flush draw? Sad

I think I am gonna go for a break in Omaha on Pokerstars. Makes me sick. It seems like I can only win a hand where I am already a winner (100%).

Link is not working, probably due to forum rules. If you want to see the hands I lost you can watch it on BOOM! player, just look for rafiko1 I have three hands there (2 of them bad beats).

You need to play Omaha a bit different than Holdem.
Some think its exactly the same thing, but its not the case.
If you dont draw that line you will keep losing long term which of course is something
that you dont want Smile

That's right.
As for me i prefer to play Omaha,especially preflop,in a more passive style
than Holdem. And usually go all-in only short-stacked.
Good luck, rafico1.

You know that on omaha the variance is huge, know as your bankroll i do not know on what limit you are playing?

Considering that you are on a losing streak my advice would be to take a couple of days off plo then try again!

Indead omaha is a postflop game, so you do not want to go all in preflop!!!

As nipitri says any hand can win...

Try this strategy :

try to see the flop as cheap as possible with hands including pairs, Ax suited

see the flop and determine the strenght of your hand and use pott odss when you have straight or flush draws.

Advantage : your opponents can not put you on starting hands (most players raise preflop with AA/KK/QQ --> so if the flop is low -->.....

and observe your opponents how they play preflop/postflop

The thing is I already play omaha for over 3 years.
I know how to play, that's not the point.
Of course there is a difference between poker and Omaha it's a different game and strategy use.
The situation with AAJJ double suit I think it's not bad to go all in with that if your get reraised by your opponent and out of position...
Was quite a good play, I believe.
But it should have been a split pot, not me losing the hand.
I usually don't go all in with Aces but sometimes it is really worth it like on that spot.

Due to variance I started of really bad, that is the thread about... Hope it gets better because for me Pokerstars is the gateway to get rich in the next year. It's the only site I am playing and whole my poker earnings are in there
Big Smile
GL guys

Yup, play as passive as possible. Limp when you can, and check-call when you have to. Sounds like good, solid poker advice to me. Big Smile
