OK - After a reasonable run on the old $10 Omaha MTTs I entered a $50 buy in Omaha game for the heck of it.. REALLY wanted to get my dosh back and cash... Was going ace for the most part and I played terrible over a few hands near the bubble and went out in 10th.... 9th place payed. Was frustrating as $50 is a large buy in and I was very close to doubling that up ans pushing on further....

Oh well.. was fun, I guess, just very frustrating to get that far and bust out after leading it for a period early days. If my BR is still as healthy this time next week i might try the same MTT again.

Sorry to hear that you were os close to be in the money on this tournament...

Now take care of your bankroll and don't rush things, keep playing the 10 dollars tournament to boost it up again Blink

Keep us posted!

Thanks Mac, will take it easy for a bit and try to pick the right ones to enter (high Gtd prizepool and lower numbers of entrants are my favs - sometime very late at night there are few playing). Blink

Been starting to reccognise a lot of the same names cropping up often in the games I play too... This is good though - you get to know how some people play. I hero called against one of the known good players the other week because I had top 2 pair and was being aggressive each betting round.. There was a flush draw and run on the board and there was a brick on the river - I was thinking that he might have thought that I had missed my flush so i bet with top pair.... He raised all in! I knew it was risky. but I did not think he had the run from the way he was betting earlier - he couldn't have the flush and I was pretty sure (from the way he was betting) that he didn't have trips.. Being a good player, I knew he might try to bluff me here as it was an ideal position to rep the run (which he wouldn't have chased all the way to the river imo) ... so i called him and took down a massive pot... he was furious that I called with only 2 pair.. lol. Usually 2 pair is nothing in big Omaha pots... but he didn't realise I had read the hand and the betting well.... I had it as a bit 50/50 really - but I was kinda pot committed (by half my stack) and that helped me make my call. I've never claimed to be any good at this - but I think I read this situation well based on knowledge of how someone good might play against me... maybe I just got lucky - lol. Cool

The thing is that you know you played some of the hands at the end bad, so that can help you
in the next games.
Since you play omaha why you dont give it a go in the hilo version.
Many players have ended up having this as their main game.

Hmm mate i know how you feel , i still remember when i used to play Zoom poker , when i would go on tilt and lost a few buyins i would move up the limits quick and get busted, done it with sngs too, last 50 dollars, all in in the highest i can afford and to lose on the bubble lol?

Best advice is to lock your SNGs, so you can only play cash or lock the limits and you would not be able to play higher limits and to unlock you will have to wait 24 hours, done it a few items, save me some dough as i cannot wait for 24hours to play, thus not playing at all. Cheers !
