Omaha 8 .. Pot Limit.. Ahhh..

So I am hanging with my boy Trauma on Pokerstars and I suggest he show me PL08. I mean it can not be that hard, right? So I sit down. The first hand I get basically is QJK9. I am like can I limp? Sureeeee.. I flop the NUT straight on a RAINBOW board. The turn keeps it a RAINBOW and I push. I get two callers with my NUT NUT hand and my first hand of the night I am up $80 to $120. Easy. I cashed out soon after and went to another table. The table had alot of tough competition. I basically held my own, up and down, until the end where I won $11. Drizz and Trauma sat down to take some of my money too. In casual conversation Drizz was saying I need about 2K to play .50/1.. I assume he is right because he is smaaaahhttt, but I am liking the results so far. The bankroll on Pokerstars is back to life support levels and if I am careful I hope to grow it a bit.

Empire sent me $10, and I got a horrific suckout AA vs QQ in a 5/1 SNG. So I got four bucks stuck on Empire. No idea what I can do with it.

Titan is hanging in there too.. Hoping to hit a big tourney and make some money to go see Pauly in Foxwoods. I might just take whatever I have on Titan and go..

Nothing wrong with hit and runs either, just be aware that nut nut hands are rare. You played fine last night :)

Go meet Pauly in Foxwoods. That would be sweet. It's about time you get your ass to a live casino game. You'll like it.
