To start either sit FS or SS. And for me I never go all in pre-flop playing omaha. The problem also here IMO is your 1$ bett, why? make a real bet if your going to do it, also you are out of position, even tho you have the best starting hand you should have just called then re-raised any raises if they happen. Omaha for me is set or better, vary rarely raise pre unless in positoion with strong hand or unraised on the button.

AAKK is good hand, but overrated in Omaha, so actually you dont want to so many players to see flop with you. Raise 1$ was bad, but i dont understand those other players too- raise to 3, raise to 5, raise to 11. When you raised allinn, they felt commited. Raise more first and with so many reraisers just call to see flop

Posted by Tchungpo: Omaha is a luckbox game ^^ I mean, there is really more luck than in holdem... with a Four players hand, you have not many chances to win... (i think)
100% wrong. Variance is not luck, and that's what Omaha has more than Hold'em, big pure hard variance. There are more permutations in a Omaha hand, so the long run is even longer, but the hand with best equity at that moment will always be the one where you get profit, like in any other poker game.
Other point you're wrong about is the low chances of win, as in Hold'em you have the same probability of getting dealt the winning hand as any other player. But the game is different. In hold'em with an excellent pre-flop and a decent post flop play you can beat many games. In Omaha post flop play is by far more important than in Hold'em.
