re: Poker & Biggest pokermistake
Somehow playing an Omaha Hi/Lo table like it's a standard Omaha game is bad, but not that bad, because you'll often get half the pot while others are mainly looking for a low, and sometimes you'll scoop when the low doesn't hit. It's a whole lot more painful when you get it wrong the other way round, though. I've done it, although (touch wood) not for a while. Part of the blame can be put on the lobby interfaces. Some (like Paradise Poker) lump the Hi/Lo games with the High-only ones, while more sensible sites (like PokerStars
) keep them on separate tabs, to avoid mistakes like this...
Alon, I feel your pain - when you do this not only do you feel like an idiot, but you know you've just completely thrown away your money, too. Hope the stakes weren't that high.
