I was actually thinking back on the first Fixed limit Omaha Hi/Lo trny I ever played in when I got the idea to start this thread with a poll. Also I thought It would be cool if we shared some interesting experiences of other poker variations we have had.
So this trny I was recalling was in 2007, and I had been studying Doyles Super System II So I felt confident that I had the game of Omaha fairly well understood, and a buddy of mine in South Carolina and I had messed around playing some heads up( as we often did with several different poker games
). Anyways, since it was before BF I was on Pokerstars
, and registered for the late Omaha FR. Well, the final pool was 4986 players, and darn it ill probly never forget that number, cuz I just grinded my darn way through 6+ hours of Omaha, and left 4985 of those players behind me as I stood alone at the end with over 7million in Tourney chips! I was in awe, I really just played basic hi/lo strategy and kept to double suited with hopefully A2KX variations. I had been playing 5/10 fixed limit holdem at the time on the casino boats they have downthere in the south, so I had some experience with Fixed limits, and how some people will NEVER FOLD, EVER. So I tried to use all that previous experience and what I had read about Omaha to give it my darndest. To this day I still think about how amazing a run that trny was for me, and it got me even more interested into poker, and also to this day I ONLY WISH it had been a 4986 field in some major event LOL.
Well I hope you all enjoyed my long winded anecdote, and please feel free to share with us all some of your Fave moments in poker history, since of course, our own memories are the moments that matter the most to each one of us. Every time we share them, we get to relive them a little, and it feels darn good to do so! Thanks!
