A perfect end, to a perfect weekend....

It all started on Friday night. Figured I go try the omaha hi/lo SnG at stars being that I usually play the 6 handed games at titan, well it was probably the best move I ever made. The play there is wild but if you patient there is BIG cash to be had there at stars in the 3.40 SnG. I went on a marathon mission this weekend and played 35 games LOL and cashed in all but 6, my theory was that if I lose 2 in a row then I call it quits, well I never lost 2 in a row the whole damn weekend and cashed out 450.00 on monday with a nice chunk of change left to play more LOL, and yes I am tootin my horn because this is the most significant cash I ever won, I am mostly a contributor to the pots LOL but check out this hand that ended my weekend. I usually don't get emails in my box but this weekend I had to much LOL

A perfect end to a perfect weekend.........

It sure helps when you have a great hand! You got the second best nut hand (first being straight flush which you almost got) and the low hand as well. It's times like these you ogt to love Omaha. We got to have an Omaha tournament soon.

Totally agree with this one, I just wonder how many of us play Omaha hi lo and Omaha? though it would be nice to have a regularly maybe monthly Omaha tourney among us here.


I enjoy Omaha and would certainly enjoy playing it with my CC family. I would even be willing to try to set one up if there is enough of an interest...... I know sites people have money on and time zones make it a challenge, but I still think it would be worth it!

I quite fancy the idea of a omaha - with or without hi/lo match

I accidently stumbled into a PL SnG on Stars (the line moved as i clicked etc. :() and when my 3rd & 4th cards came out i was a little surprised lol.

It was a really good game - came 4th after being in the running for most of the game.

I think with the mass tv exposure of hold-em the other games are overlooked and are just as much fun too :)
