  • Straight Flush beatten by a Royal Flush

    This player was playing every hand I never put him on.............................. Check this out......this is a real bad beat I think

    str8 flush? I'm assuming it was a PLO game. You must use 2 from your hand, so all that you had a set of Q. With 3 diamonds on the board, since you can't beat a flush of any kind... let alone a royal.... it's gotta be an auto muck. If I hit a full house by the board pairing, then I'd call or bet... and be wary of quads or str8 flush.

    With a nut flush possible and pair K preflop, I'm in the hand if I was him. Then he flopped the nuts and rivered the absolute nuts.

      I just learn lots of very important lessons

      1) Should always wear my glasses when playing
      2) Don't watch the Canadians lose against Boston
      3) Don't drink to many beers
      4) But mostly, big difference between hold'em and omaha

        Yeah you have a set of QQQ which is easily beatable. I like calling the flop, keeping the pot small. You have a good hand, not the nuts, and it can improve to a full house/quads. If you raise you might get reraised off this draw/have to commit the rest of your stack with just top set. You have the 9 of diamonds, so at least your boat draw is live (before the river that is).

        Mostly just fold pre though. QQxy is not very strong.

          Actually he's got a straight. Which is the same thing essentially as a set of Q's (except it does beat a set of aces). Non-nut straight on a flush board = fold to this river action.

          Agree that QQ92 is a fold pre facing a raise to 120 here.

            And that's why I don't play much Omaha! I've folded the nuts a few times because I didn't realize what I had.

              It's why I normally play EITHER omaha or hold'em.... try not to be doing both at once, like I was last night when I saw it. One or the other, I'm fine. Both, I start to miss things in the Omaha hands.

                Totally agree, that's probably the MAIN reason
                I was playing 2 tournaments at the same time (which I both made it in the money), so wasn't paying that much attention and Omaha, I think you need to pay more attention
