So Today I Tried A Different Game
Last week I talked about wanting to learn how to play Omaha 8 HL. I got some good advice, and tonight I decided to give the game a try. I deposited $20 on Titan and played in a $1.1 SnG. At first, I made a few mental errors, forgetting that you can only use 2 of your hole cards to make your hand, and I dropped down to about 250 chips within the first 5 hands. Then I scrolled up and realized what mistakes I was making, and it was on from there. From that point on, I tightened up my game and came back. By the time 2 opponents were knocked out, I was back to 1000 chips. Then came the bubble play, and I hit a run of crappy cards, dropping me back down below 500 chips. So I had to play aggressive again, and did that ever pay off. I jumped back up and into the chip lead within the next 10 hands. I played tight until I hit the money, and then I played heads up for about 20 minutes with my final opponent. We went back and forth. In the end, I won the SnG, and felt pretty darn good about myself.
Thanks everyone for encouraging me to play this game. It's a lot different than NL, but a lot of the same techniques still apply. Your advice definately propelled me to this first place finish. Thanks.
