Or play like an absolute loon and keep hitting for 10 minutes. Keep playing those hands and you'll go bust double quick, so don't think you've got it sussed just yet.

Most of those hands I played I know are not amazing hands but with a few limpers I will usually limp (not much raising PF on this table) with any possible high straight or flush, if i dont hit the flop well then ill fold to a bet, just managed to catch good flop cards in that spell e.g with the 4s 8c 8h Js I caught the nut straight with no possible flush on the flop 10h 7c 9d and the guy pushed and i put him all in and won the pot, he had the lower straight with 6 8 in his hand.

For sure there were absolute nuts at that table.

Seriously tho. With Omaha being what it is, a game of draws, his hanging till the river was a cheap look. His opp was wrong in slow playing his boat, underboat tho it was. Nail it on the flop would have been the proper play there.

OK, that's fair enough then if you have a plan, but in reality, all that's happened is that in the space of seven hands you've rivered a full house against a made full house (however weakly played), flopped an extremely unlikely straight against someone who was unfortunate enough to also make his hand (with 2 eights out, he can be excused for thinking he had the winning hand surely?), and somehow got $14 out of a pair of Jacks the next hand (presumably hit another one). That's an extraordinary run of cards, but it's hardly "easy money" is it?

If you just mean in terms of the hand I posted Bombjack then there is no reason to slowplay this hand until the river as 2s full of is something i personally would try to take down on the flop, only hands beating him at this point is having pocket Jacks ( the nuts at this point in this hand) or J2 if he throws in a bet he would have to hope im on a flush draw, any sort of bet and I would fold here but no he checks, then a bet on the turn put him on 2 pair eights and jacks so i still have him beat so i call it, so ive made it to the river very cheaply and caught a ten so i come out betting and he pushes so i put him all in and i won the hand, as DJ says Omaha is a game of Draws and i got my card cheap and got paid.

Point taken Rob, it was just an extraordinary run of cards rather then "easy money" :) Thx for posting everyone, I appreciate peoples replies and opinions and try to learn from them.

My point being that the nuts on this board is JJ or J2. If he'd slowplayed J2 rather than 22 you'd have been going bust yourself. In a blind vs blind situation you didn't play too badly, although a pre-flop raise would be better. You weren't calling the turn on a draw (to your 2 tens) - you were calling because you thought your Tens were good. But I agree, your opponent played it atrociously.
