Lol @ justusgirlz shoving a 3225 stack with 99 and no low draw. Probability of sweeping = 0

Lol @ cosmo shoving his stack with A7 for low and no pair. Probability of sweeping = close to 0

Oh wait, I just noticed, they both have sooooted aces. Lol, that makes it all swell then. Good job guys!!!

TBH, being I'm not exactly the greatest PLO8 player, I'm not sure what to make about 8fivesuited going all-in with his hand. It's probably a borderline call with A3 for low and JJ for high, although I tend to think it's closer to a fold with 2 players all-in. Easy to put 1 of them on A2 and the other on a higher pair, however maybe it's not that bad considering there is a big side pot that goes HU.

I take it from the blinds and stacks that this is very early in the tournament - they all knew they were playing Omaha8 and not Omaha Hi?!? Justusgirlz' hand wouldn't be as horrible if it were just a high game...

Guess it's always nice to know early you're up against players like this though :D

All I can say is "Wow". And I thought the micro tables were soft. Maybe I should give this tourney a shot.
