re: Poker & Omaha MTT bubble
Is this Pot Limit Omaha Hi? I'm assuming Omaha Hi, but if so then BB raising all in on flop means he only had <t5,000 chips before the hand, no? In any case:
SB in this hand actually is about 58% favorite to win after the flop, due to diamond draw + bigger runner runner straight draw + bigger two pair or trips if he hits any cards in his hand. BB's hand is made with two pair and has open ended straight draw, so it is also no slouch in this spot.
I think if this is a normal tournament payout structure and I am playing with proper bankroll management, the hand played out as it should have. Honestly, if I'm on either side of the hand I'm happy to get it in there. After potting on the flop, I'm never folding this as SB. As BB, the only way I would fold would be if payout structure is almost completely flat and it looks as if folding the rest of the way may allow me to make it ITM.
So to summarize, SB and BB both played it fine. I would rather be SB in this hand. The only reasonable fold would be from BB, and that would ONLY be if he thinks he can fold his way ITM.
