    The way i see this I had a full house Jacks full of 9s, Is this a software error or due to the fact that only one of my hole cards contributed toward what I believed was a full house?

            If you think PLAYING omaha is a chore, try dealing it. High/Low is a real fun game for the dealer. Then throw in a few players going all-in, sure made me happy doing table games instead of poker.

                  I am not saying anyone WOULD do it, but if you are playing for $$, and learning, then posting that information on here, I would at least hide yourself from searches while you are playing that game.

                  There MIGHT be people who would seek you out just to play against you knowing you are a noob to that particular game.

                  Just saying, the best offense is a good defense.

                  Cheers

                    While this is true, I would point out that there is so much terrible play at PLO, especially in microstakes, that trying to follow around a single new player is a waste of time... you could already be sitting at the first available table.
