Just made one of the stupidest mistakes of my poker playing career. Sat down at a Pot Limit Omaha Hi-Lo table and this happens (btw you can comment on whether I played this well or not but seeing as I've only just started I know I'm probably pretty bad)...

I don't play omaha, but I've heard a couple people do the similar things....

Even if it was hi-lo, the raise and every call is wrong! (except the river call because you're in too deep not to).

Sorry, but it is true.

Not surprised, I told you I was bad!

(However I seem to be cleaning up on the $0.5/1 limit tables so I must *sometimes* be doing something right... or maybe they're just worse than I am.)

I've made it to the final 10 of a 50-something PLO tournament only to bust out because during a 5 minute break I somehow forgot that I wasn't playing Hi/Lo.

Same thing has happened to me but in stud hi. Mine was really odd, I was an hour and a half in my highs were winning big and my lows kept coming up short didn't notice it at all. Than I finally call down to 7th with a made low and i'm checking HH and gettign ready to send it to PP that soemthign is wrong with the software. Top left corner catches my eyes and I just see "Stud" I ended up , up money but still wasted alot chasing for lows that were no good even if they did hit.
