    Peoples ignorance in omaha

    Post  Muffer on Sun Sep 12, 2010 6:43 am

    Just a quick summary of about 99% of omaha low limit players.
    Im in a game on trips flop hes basically chasing the flush (non nut)!!!!!!!!!.
    He raises me on flop so I push him in and he exits the game......
    He then says "very lucky you always get lucky,".
    To which I reply your odds were >>>>>>>>>>>>>
    He replies 35% to win............this post is about the fact he has totally lost the fact he hasnt included my hit % and if I hit my cardS his odds drop to 0%............BASICALLY ITS A 75/25 HAND NOT A 65/35.
    1 of the reasons I love omaha

    It's the only form of the game where I make consistent profits at. However; it does give me the biggest headaches.

    I wouldn't single out Omaha though. 95% of players at the tables of any online game couldn't tell you to within 10% their odds of hitting whatever it may be. How many people chase non-nut flushes after a flop with 2 of their cards on. How many play suited cards that they'd never dream of playing unsuited - for big sums of money pre-flop - thinking their chances double or something!?

    It's just a shame that even knowing this I just don't seem to be able to beat the odds. If I could, I'd be doing what you do.

    If I actually played poker any more, I may well believe this lol! I just have too many commitments at the moment and can't spare the time or the money.
