O my dog...
Today's WR2 is limit omaha hi/lo.
Which is actually worse than no-limit, as it's pretty much guaranteed that on 98.6% of tables 96.8% of players will have the mouse on the Raise button all the time, on auto-click, at least in the early phase.

I have lots of tickets, so I may as well play it.
Any advice?
Sit out until level 4? Can't really, as it starts at 20/40, and even though they're 15-minute blinds increases, they're 100/200 at level 4, so... maybe level 2 (30/60)?

Fold everything except ultra-monsters? There aren't really any at this game, AA23 goes bust like nothing.

Play along at the roulette and hope for the best?

Mix of three, any idea? :)

I took the "play only premium hands" route and I'm still in it with 267 to go to the bubble.

The MAj went out at 3500 or so, right around the first break, I think.

The 2 chip leaders at the table, both over 30K, seem to be playing any 4. I'm 1/2 the average, I have to fold everything.

bubble, I'm out soon.
My last BB got called around to me and my straight didn't fill, so wasted 1SB and 1BB.

Yeah I did :)
I wasn't getting any, so I tried a bit of this and a bit of that, but this is mostly how it went:



After which, blinds went up, stack down, took risks, you know :)

The hand that killed me was ; I had to play it, but it ate up a lot of chips before ultimately failing. I probably would have given up on it earlier if the player shoving wasn't so short stacked, but it looked like he might just be trying to buy the pot; I had seen him playing crap earlier, but he had a valid low.

Any of the FL Astronomers and WR2's are like this really. 6-9 players seeing the flop is the rule more than the exception,once the bubble approaches they tend to calm down a little. Try the FLHE WR2 once,you'll be shaking your head in disbelief/disgust by the 2nd orbit.

Nice job Corkie and you outlasted the Bosrcht Belt Bot,Kockapoker. LOL look him up once,dude has like 60K + results on OPR alone. I think if there's a game for $5.00 and less going anywhere he's even money to be in it,lol. Solid player to.Don't anyone ever tip him to the leagues,he'll play every game.

Just sticking it here because it's obviously not worth opening a new thread.



Maj. D Zastr finished the tournament in 6th place and received $62.000.000.000.000

Just because AK plays as well all in as it does any other way doesn't mean you have to shove every time you have it. Personally, I prefer to play it more normally.

Oh I'm not a big fan of AK myself, but the guy was really bullying hard and after quite a few rag hands with fast depleting stack I saw my chance to get him.
I was running 3rd at the final table, that hand would have put me first, I wasn't going to fold to this guy :)
I don't really regret the play, it made sense in that situation, just how it went... but then that's how it goes sometimes, no big deal.

Earlier AK hand in the same tourney, notice I did shove with it, but it made sense there, didn't it?
