At age 46, he is not a too old man and he can play for a long time from now on. Most players will lose if they are timid, nervous or with big emotions but when they are relaxed the chances of concentration are much better. This winner took an important amount and a bracelet and now he is happy.

I noticed that many football players love the game of poker and sometimes achieve good results ... there is a wonderful result ... winning the bracelet and a wonderful cash gain of more than $ 1,000,000 ... this is certainly a great result and the next first gold bracelet .... 46 years probably started his poker career

This is the favorite game of mine.
I believe it is the most fun to play, at least for me Smile
The game had a good number of entrants, and it is one that doesnt get the same
sign ups like a holdem game.
And this time the winners list was almost all usa. Like there was a mistake, and the winner on the final place was from uk Smile

I did not understand this game but i like Omaha. I think there ( in online poker ) should be more games because is fascinating for many players. If you like Omaha Hi/Lo 8 or Better then you will need to focus more on this game. It can be profitable for you.

I tried to play Omaha and this is of course a very interesting game .... but it is very different from the usual Hold'em .... so I play it very rarely .... because I can not say that I fully understand all the layouts of this game .... Hold'em is much more familiar .... But if you focus on Omaha, you can achieve remarkable results

It's not very hard and you get 4 cards in your hand and 5 cards on the table. The best two cards in the hand are chosen with rest of the 5. Tihis is not so bad and it's not that hard. I do not understand what Hi / Lo 8 or Better is but i guess it's not very hard.

It's quite difficult to get practice in a game of different games besides hold'em ... but now svc poker has freerolls where you can practice various poker games .... which I have been doing there lately ... I liked the game Courchevel ... it looks like Omaha But a bit different ... interesting game

Calicul, Hi/lo 8 or better is a version of omaha where you have two ways to win - either by standard rules where you need to collect the best hand, or by collecting the best lo hand with the worst cards, where A2345 is nuts. The main pot is divided between the best and the worst hands.

A very interesting game. Practically the middle cards do not matter from this point of view. It's not an easy game but it's not hard either. I will search to see if there ( in online poker ) is a free game to see how interesting this game is. Thanks for the tips.

Of course, when you have to think through each move when playing Omaha High Low .... it is quite difficult that you have a small card in your hand .... and 2 small cards come to the flop .... you start to bet, but in the end, 5 cards and it does not come .... and you end up losing .... Although I was sure of my victory .... the game is rather complicated, it seems to me more difficult than hold'em

You have the chance to see how hard this game is. You have to watch a table, to play on virtual chips and to make a small buy-in if you want. I do not know if you like it but if you're curious you can try. Some players prefer other games than Holdem.

If someone would ask me to rate my favourite poker games, Omaha Hi/Lo would probably be my second choice after stud. It's an amazing game, where more experienced players are able to dominate by more against beginners than in holdem, from my perspective.
