I'm a commited Omaha/8 lover from way back and am ready to join the 14-step program (remember that Omaha players always get "2 more" then normal folks.)

Please accept my application to join Omahalics Anonymous.

Also - I'd like to nominate myself for Sargent at Arms (known in some circles as the "Cooth Master"). I notice that that position is currently unfilled.

And if there's anything an Omaholic really needs it's constant reminders that, per General Washington, "the foolish and wicked practice of cursing and swearing ..." is one of the preferred ways to improve your winning ratio!

"Crush me, squeeze me. Make me wine!"

Consider it done. If we get enough members, we may actually be able to have a meeting...

BA, I may qualify.

--While I still love NLHE, I have actually found myself skipping a NLHE tourney to play in an O8 tourney.

--I feel like I actually understand now: YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN ACE IN YOUR HAND TO PLAY (almost always).

--I now rarely bet when I have a low only.


Are these all signs???

I am not worthy, but applying anyway,

Alas, I too have forsaken my once favorite game of Hold 'Em for the mysterious game they call Omaha. I can't get enough of it. I can't sleep until I have played it. Multiple times. Please help me.

Respectfully submitted,

As it's a long weekend here in Canada (Thanksgiving), I will be out of town until Monday evening. I'll consider everyone's applications then.

That is, assuming I'm still not stuffed and sleepy from Thanksgiving dinner... 8O

:lol:Sitting down at my very first Omaha game in a B&M casino I didn't really know what I was doing. Was delt 6-7-8-9. To make a very long story short. Floped a str8, lots of action raked in a 300 pot.

First Time Winner was hooked forever.

Please consider my application for membership.

Hmmm, every former team member of BlackAces is in except for me.

Fine, I know I whined about Omaha 8 back then, but I like it now, really I do.

RGGATOR - if you insist on having an Ace AND rarely bet a "low only" hand, you'll soon be drummed out of Omaholics Anonymous.

- a true OA member, although aware of these winning points, simply overlooks them in the frenzy to play more hands.

Repent - or suffer the consequences!!!

SHADRAK - how can you possibly claim to be "older than all of us"? Is this another one of those OA boasts?

- Have you totally overlooked the point that 1 Omaha/8 year is equivalent to 4 hold'em years. So unless you've been playing Omaha a V-E-R-Y long time, this claim is as fatuous as raising pre-flop with a bare A-2.

Remember, if nothing else, OA members are totally stable and never misstate the facts OR their hands.

OA RULE 374a: failing to notice that the River copied your low, leaving you with only a 7 7 high is not an error for an OA member.
- it's simply another opportunity to bluff into the 6 remaining callers!
