Help with Omaha
A couple of days ago I began to play omaha for the first time. I was playing at royal vegas
poker at the $0.25/0.50 no limit table. I sat down with $20 and after a few hands had doubled my money and then about an hour into it I won $100. I came back the next day hoping to win more but I ended up losing it all. The problem I'm having trouble understanding is the hands I lost with. I lost all of my money on either straights, flushes, or full-houses all of which I hit on the flop. The hand I lost the most money on, $32, I had 8h,10h,Js,Qs. The flop came down 8d, 10s, 10c. There were only two other people in the pot besides me at this point. The first guy bet $18 and the second guy folded. Since I had the boat 10 over 8 I re-raised all-in and he called. He had a pair of aces and that was it. The turn came down as a 2c then the river which was an ace giving him aces over tens.
Did I play the hand wrong? All of the other hands were pretty much like this one where I had the best hand at the flop but would always lose on the turn or river. I tried to bet big but I always got a caller so I stopped doing that cause I was just losing money. What could I have done differently?
