Omaha Hi-Lo Insanity

Yet more bubbling out of the money ... this is getting awfully tiring, especially when some horrific play cost me a huge amount of chips at the final table through no fault of my own. I gave waaaaay too much credit to some of these players actually having the goods.

I think I earned all of 1.5 bounties -- yes, even the $2 KO bounties got split in this horrific event put on by Chad's supposed "skill" series.

I also hate running into an unimproved AA and missing a ton of outs when I finally got a hand at the final table that I wasn't premptively raised off of:

For what I meant by that previous statement, check out this doozy of a play (whom I'm sure is a nice guy, but holy crap was this an awful play or what!?) by dino_burger:

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to PirateLawyer [5h 5c Ad Jd]
lifesagrind folds
Mondogarage raises to 3,000
dino_burger raises to 4,500
Rake Feeder folds
jimdniacc folds
pvanharibo folds
PirateLawyer folds - I reluctantly fold; I just can't invest so much of my stack preflop by calling three bets cold. I mjust be up against a big hand, right?
Mondogarage calls 1,500
*** FLOP *** [4s Js 9d]
Mondogarage bets 1,500
dino_burger raises to 3,000
Mondogarage calls 216, and is all in
dino_burger shows [Ac 7h 4c 3h] -- how do you isolate with this shit?!
Mondogarage shows [Td As Ts 2c]
Uncalled bet of 1,284 returned to dino_burger
*** TURN *** [4s Js 9d] [5d] -- fawking presto is gold
*** RIVER *** [4s Js 9d 5d] [Qh]
dino_burger shows a pair of Fours, for high
Mondogarage shows a pair of Tens, for high
PirateLawyer: fawk
Mondogarage wins the pot (14,682) with a pair of Tens
No low hand qualified
*** SUMMARY ***
Total pot 14,682 | Rake 0
Board: [4s Js 9d 5d Qh]
Seat 1: pvanharibo (small blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 2: PirateLawyer (big blind) folded before the Flop
Seat 3: lifesagrind didn't bet (folded)
Seat 4: Mondogarage showed [Td As Ts 2c] and won (14,682) with HI: a pair of Tens
Seat 5: dino_burger showed [Ac 7h 4c 3h] and lost with HI: a pair of Fours
Seat 7: Rake Feeder didn't bet (folded)
Seat 8: jimdniacc (button) didn't bet (folded)

I take down that pot, I cruise to a high finish in the money. Ah well. This bubble streak has to end soon, right? Right!?

Omaha can be a game of very high variance. And yes, the runner runner beats SUCK. Hang in there though.

Your hand sucked anyways. Why even dwell on it? That's like complaining that I folded 83o and the flop came 333. I mean... really...

I think I've said this before, but I'll say it again... STOP WHINING.


Your time will come and you'll run good sooner or later.

I guess I've learned to whine from the best ... ;)

I don't really mean to come across as a crybaby, but oh well. C'est la vie.
