TR from last night:
I ran an Omaha Variation night with an hour rotation each of PLO, Limit Double flop, Limit Omaha 2-1-1, PLO8, Limit Stampler, Limit Big O, PLO8.
We played the limit games as $1/2 and the PLO/8 games as $0.25/0.25 with a $25 cap per person per hand. I ended up with a full table of 8 guys for the evening and had the first rebuy within 20 minutes so I knew it was going to be a good game.
During the course of the game we ended up with 6 or 7 quads and 3 straight flushes (srsly how the f does that happen?). 3 of the quads were mine and at one point we had quads lose to a straight flush (second time this has happened in the last month).
First set of quads was in PLO when I held QQxx and the board came out QTT. I bet the pot on the flop/turn to hit the cap and was ahead when we flipped everything over and then for good measure hit the case Q on the river.
In that round I also held KKA3 on a board of QT2. I bet pot into the 3 players and got called by two. Turn came a 5. I got a feeling that my KK was still ahead for high against my two calling station opponents and with the nut low figured I could bet again. I chickened out and only bet half the pot. One opponent called and the river came a 9. He led for the cap. I had to call as it wasn't that much more and he flipped over J836. Awesome
The second set came in Omaha 2-1-1. I held 888Q and being that you can use 3 cards from your hand held a monster. Flip came out 85 and got called/raised several times with 3 or 4 players to the river.
After that I didn't win a hand for the next 3 hours and watched my $60 dollar profit turn into about even as I played a couple of hands, but didn't have much of anything in any round. In the Stampler round where high spade in the hole plays if there is no low, I didn't see a spade above an 8 in the whole hour.
The new guy to the game said I will probably run hot during PLO8. Boy was the right. The worst part was it was all against him....
I hit a set of 9's a board of paired J's for a full house against his trip J's. $25 there. Flop of AA6, I held A6 against his AK. $25 there. I also put a sick beat against him when I held 234
with a board of 3
. He bet the full pot on the flop and I pegged him for KK/AA so I shoved to the cap for about $15 more thinking he would fold since he was a good player. Turns out he had A246 and snap called me. Whoops...Board ran out T
for the backdoor flush, no low scoop.
Then I hit my 3 set of quads for the evening with TT, QTQXT board although this time I didn't get paid off
About an hour later we were still playing PLO8 since the evening was extending about an hour or two past its usually length because of the holiday evening and I get Q
. New guy straddles, 5 callers to me, I call, New guys pots it and still gets 4 callers. I don't love my hand, but say screw it I'm calling.
Board comes Q
. One of the best flops I think for my hand so I pot. New guy shoves to the cap and gets one more caller. I call for like $8 more.
New Guy: KK34
Other Guy: T984
Turn comes another 2 giving the new guy a better two pair and the river blanks. Guess I deserved it....
We play for another 30 minutes and decide to play the last orbit. I deal out the last hand and of course everybody limps in. We ended up with 4 people capped all in on the flop. Here's the hand. I held the 4Q68
Best part was that the A4 guy was short stacked, so I ended up scooping the ~$50 side pot along with taking ~$25 of the main pot. Sick...
Here is my final chip stack for the night. Each blue stack is $40 for a total of $237. +$157 profit.
Here is all of the chips I got on the table ~$800 worth with 765 blue chips (can't see one rack).
Overall was a wonderful rotation and a huge hit with the players at the game. Definitely planning on running this one again soon.
