Ornate Push

Omaha wbcoop

Easy tournament, self inflicted defeat

The standard of play was pretty awful, I was able to add 7k chips to my 2.5k starting stack in the first hour (remember this was a POT LIMIT game) everyone was desperate to ship 'em in.
Then half way through I took a crappy beat against one of the loose guys who was hitting the deck :

Dealt to TanOrpheus [9s Qh 8h Qs]
jrmriga: shows [7s 7h Kd 6d]
Allin Preflop
*** RIVER *** [4d 2c 2d 5c] [3s]
jrmriga: shows [7s 7h Kd 6d] (a straight, Three to Seven)
TanOrpheus: shows [9s Qh 8h Qs] (two pair, Queens and Deuces)
jrmriga collected 10290 from pot

Sickly but it only busted me back to an average stack, unfortunately I then went card dead and couldn't get the chips back. I crippled myself with this hand which has been bothering me since the moment I played it. The hard part is not knowing if there's anything I can really do here.

78 left, an "M" of 3.6 and people not really going out quickly. I think I have to play this hand preflop, and in an ideal world we get it all-in preflop so then I don't have to worry about anything else. Guess really since I wanted to be allin I should ship my remaining 1500 chips in on the flop anyway. Arrrgh, just a really annoying, crappy hand played poorly. I do not think I could have folded into the 72nd spot though and the decent prizes were far higher up than that.

I did have some great support from Professional Railer BamBam so the night wasn't a complete waste of time ! Thanks Bam

Tonight is our local christmas lottery draw so all things being even I should be about 400k richer tomorrow morning (you won't believe me if the next post is me describing winning on my one ticket that I've got) Ha!
