After reading T1riel's post and re-reading original post, it sunk in what she was asking!
I don't have all the hand rankings memorized, the book I checked out from the library had to go back there after keeping the thing for 3 months,(I didn't study the thing and memorized what I could) I have other things that had to be done and only retained some of the rankings.
And I might have misread the board completely come to think of it but not sure now. Not very good at the screen shot thing even though EVERYONE has told me how to do it(more than once). I need to have my son show me again on here so I can learn that.
Yes I still have ro look at the board and had to make sure I wasn't including 3 cards instead of two in my hand or 4 instead of 3 off the board I think that just takes more experience with the game. I don't have alot of money and donkey fest tournies and play chips aren't the experience I need nor want.
I haven't played this game live yet but I am itching to because I do pretty well when I play Omaha and Omaha h/l online, most of the time.
Seriously, Pain Meds made me post the first post
