AAKK Omaha  0   
I had AAKK, and even suited crowns.

8 players in table 0.50sb/ 1bb

I raise 1$,
player2 raises 3$
player3 raises 5$
player4 raises 11$

My turn I raise all-in 38.50$

player 2 calls
player 3 calls
player 4 calls

pot was something 140$ or more.


player 2 shows AA36
player 3 shows 81010J
player 4 shows 3355

im leading until river card comes and player 3 makes straight Confused

Did I play wrong, I had AAKK suites pre-flop, so no reason to fold.

You did right, but in Omaha no hand is as big in the lead as AA in texas

I agree, play this hand the same way a hundred times and you win much more then you lose.
But I have to say, in Omaha high I like hands like 10JQK-double suit better.

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.

Well I won earlier this all money I had in Omaha with 4569, every player was raising also then pre-flop, and I thought I had good chance to make straight, and I won then.

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

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.

Agree Agree
i think omaha is much more skill than holdem like as racpxt said.
don't play much of it as i am a donk at it, but hope to learn it some day.

I've won more money in Omaha PL with hands like 2345 or TJKQ, even two suited cards than with 2 pairs in my hands. It's only my own experience

omaha is hard game and more for donkeys or fishes because they can win some more and puting big all in with cards till 10 because u easy can catch straight so its easy way to loose money play omaha better play holdem and u really be on top with AA or KK in hand
good luck all and be happy
