  • sick hand

    I don't know how to use the gizmo so just posted plain style. My read was that if my opponent wanted called he/she would always make the bet size attractive. Pretty gutted considering.

    you got extremely unlucky. Their bets and calling with absolutely nothing were horrible.

    With a pair on the board in Omaha, you always have to be on the lookout for a full house. The starting hands people should be playing are suited aces and pairs... so someone could always have a full house. Trips with a pair on the board do not win at omaha very often.

      thanks 4 the feedback JW. i realise how vulnerable trips are to draws and full houses. i was reading weakness and went with it. i didn't really want called but if i was i had the nut flush covered and had more outs to the best fh if my opponent had worst case scenario: Q3, Q4 ,33, 44 (i didn't give that credit as the bet seemed too big considering my opponents tendencies).

        If you get a read like that, exploit it. You lost this time, but it WILL work out for you in the long run.

          I wouldn't lead this flop in omaha, the rainbow board is so dry I don't think your getting action from anything less than full house, at least not from any half decent omaha player. Your lead allows your opponent's to fold worse hands and only continue when he has you nailed. I would rather check/call the flop, which gives your opponent the chance to bluff or even value-town himself if he happens to have the case Q with worse kicker, while also keeping the pot small if he does have the full house. Trips on a paired board in omaha don't like to play monster pots because when your getting that much action your usually beat, so I'd rather be taking pot control lines with this kind of hand.

          As played I would have folded to this guys bet on the turn. He min raised your bet on the flop, and pot bets the turn, that seems really strong to me, like AKQ4, QJT4, or 44xx etc..trying to stack you off now that you've shown interest. I think you have to be extremely confident in your reads of this guy to get it on the turn.

              just to clarify, u can't have trips without a pair on the board. u can have a set, which is a three of a kind using a pocket pair. trips is a hole card that combines with a pair on the board.
