Becoming a TEACHER :P

I have been playing a lot of OMAHA lately on FTP...I for long have considered myself a OMAHA cash gae player and a Holdem SNG/tourney player...


I live in an appartment with two friends of mine and they have to be like the 50th guys in town whom i convinced to create a pokerstars and full tilt accont and fire a deposit...(YA THANK ME STARS)


Most of my friends try to play cash games and make it ride...they dont deposit much also...only one of my friend actually ran his roll pretty good and even after me phoning him constantly to then maintain proper BANKROLL MANAGEMENT he went at the higher stakes and lost it all....


My flatmates have rather taken a liking for OMAHA..and me doing decent on FTP for the past few weeks and them raining me has made then interested to give it a try as well... I taught them some only beginner things of OMAHA and which all hands can be folded easily anywhere ...


We firstly played live and then my friend took it online and booked a decent winning session... I was actually railing him from my room as he said he felt pressured if i was in the room with him itself... The thing with OMAHA is u want to spot the fish on te table as fast as possible...people spewing around is much common in OMAHA these days than the traditional Holdem...


OMAHA is still not a completely mastered game atleast not at the micros levels i play at...i play maximum of .25/.5 blinds...but my staple food is .05/.1

I mostly sit short stack(50BB) relative to the whole table and like to have position on the big starck...In the best table i have played so far i ran my 50BB to 800BB..i normally leave a table when i am 150BB but that table have everone short at around 70BB stack except only the fish who had 400BB and i had position on him...


So guys u should also try OMAHA in my opinion and conttrary to HOLDEM i would say it about correct folds...u might have the nuts on the turn but consider first why the guy called ur 80% pot bet on the turn and now is potting the river...he might be trying to bluff u like 1% of the time ..99% he has u dead..

And more importantly hw to take out value from a guy who potted the turn and u have nuts on the river
