Best omaha hi/lo toernement player in the world and highstakes o8 cash player




Who am I?

Young guy came up after black friday. Started pokercarriere with challenge 10$ till 10k and made that. After that played mostly holdem mtt for long time but i never had the run i needed to make it big. Then i start playing more omaha hi/lo a game i love a lot and start battling everyone on cash lower stakes till the highstakes there are. couple years after that i have the results where i can say that it could be possible i am the best omaha 8 toernement player in the world.


Why i started a blog

There is close to no content in o8 and it very hard for people to get better in it because of that. That the reason why everyone sucks at this game very big. I start a blog to try to get more attention for this game and to get more exposure for myself so people who are willing to get better can do it by reading this blog or by sending me a message for coaching.
I refuse to give coaching in omaha 8 till this point of making this blog because i had figured out everything myself and it was worth to much. But now day i get no action on cash games anymore and toernement are so incredebly soft for me so i dont care helping people beat o8 toernements too. And i think by making good player in holdem for example also decent in omaha8 the omaha field will get bigger what will be positive for me too.
And i started a blog because i am bored because of lack of action i get from people and need some motivation what i think i can get more with having a blog and coaching people.

shoot some question about me or this game if you want!

OK. You asked.

1. What important character traits, if any, do winning Omaha-8 players have in common?

2. If you listed any character traits in question #1, which of these is the most important?

3. When did you start playing poker?

4. When did you start playing Omaha-8 poker?

5. What percentage of your poker playing time is spent playing tournaments?

6. What percentage of your poker playing time is spent playing cash games?

7. What percent of your poker playing time is spent playing on-line?

8. I believe you live in Holland (the Netherlands). Is that correct? Where (what city)? Do you travel? If so, where have you traveled?

9. What is your real name?

thanks for questions buzz i will not answer them all directly but will answer them few at time when i have good answer.

3. Starting playing poker before 18 but only freerolls and made a bit so i can also say i never have deposited any of my own money to pokersite.

7. I think around 95-98% is spent playing online. life games are not really worth it for me but i did go to some ept stops to play a bit.

your last 2 questions will not be answerd i like to stay anonymous with my real name and other personal information

ok your first question i am going to think about. especially the mtt players it very hard i can maybe not come up with 5 because people are terrible in o8 mtt's

my archenemy on the tables is " silentpurple" at this point he can not even stand in my shadow. But with him it started directly at the beginning i did play o8 cash games. I remember a lot of sessions where i was just playing 2/4 and this guy continuously berates me and saying i will be broke soon and i will not make it. Somehow he did trigger me, i remember telling him that i am different from all those guys who did try to make it in o8.
At that time i did tell him that withing a year i will beat his ass on 10/20. he laughed and told me numerous times he wil "send me back to macdonald"
long story short 9 month later i crush his soul on 10/20, i know it hurt him a lot he started talking so much **** about me in o8 skype groups and so.
And even hilarious things he say he would quit alcohol till the point he beats me LOL. Ofcourse that did not make a different and now a days i have made silentpurple the oldskool nobody who he is.

But still every week a few times he ask me if i am not broke yet, even after he admit he railing every 25/50 and 50/100 game i play like a real fanboy. I know he can not be serious but every time he says it i look to my balance and see all the sweet silentpurple money that it in there and i smile

Love reading your posts, very entertaining

I see you sit out a lot when against other regs, usually playing 3-4 handed, is there certain players you wont give action to?

Why do you 'go south' a lot?

If you had to stick to one format would it be cash or tournaments?

thanks!

I dont sit out vs other regs 3-4 handed. I guess there can be 2 reason if i sitout if game with multiple people runs

1. The player why all those bumhunter reg come to play leaves, a long time i just did not care and keep playing but it had cost me too much (of paying bb too much) to keep doing that. So everytime i think the game will break i sitout and i am right in like 95%+ of cases
2. i sitout because i am away i sit the lobby everyday (because i battle close to everyone) and when i go to eat or sometimes even sleep i just keep sitting that could be reason why i sitout in game that runs.

In 4 card pl and nl there is no lineup i would not play for sure. In 5 card i can image a few if i have bad stacksizes and bad place at the table because some regs are so boring nitty to play. for example sirens and kuhns89. Even if i think i am better then this guys it not worth with the rake and i have sometimes tilt issues what could make it even bad idea overall to start battling those.

I would chose cash all day over MTT. But only because online there are not really good highstakes o8 toernement unless it scoop. and only 2 good toernement of o8 on monday and friday.

Ok top 5 o8 cash imo (but it difficult because of lot of variants and stacksizes and table sizes)

1. fers223 (overall very strong 4 card and also 5 card hu and with more people)

2. Bedias (more of bumhunter but definitly more skilled then all bumhunters good in any format of o8 but not playing a lot of Hu, has not really ever battle me a lot HU because i think that his weakest game but even that he solid i think)

3. Onmybicycle ( battles most is total crusher if he plays his A game in and o8 format only like to spew regularly and tilting. Sometimes too stupid to battle to much vs the few guys in world that could beat him)

4. kuhns89 (even tho he is nitty and a rat. he definitly nothing special but other people are even worse, boring to play definitly no great poker mind but he seems like having most experience in o8. only very bad after crushing his soul in 4 card in few hands he never give me action in that anymore)

5. maybe Shanis ( just because i have no good alternative i could say bokkie87 but honestly i still dont know how good he is because he is only reg who did not even try to battle me in last years. Maybe because he figured out i did play him on ipoker and crush his sould there on 5/10 early on. He dont come in top 5 because he is pus sy. but maybe a smart pus sy for not playing me)
Shanis is retard tho who runs like sun this year so he probably also overrated and he still does not understand that after betting flop you do not need always bet the turn.

i tried 2 days ago he goes sitout (but he did only wanted to play bokkie it looks like). yesterday tried sit with 4k vs joiso but he then started bluffing that he only play 10k stacks..

so i reload and we played 15 hands and he runs


But i think it overall bad for my mindset to play thoses guys and stakes. i am not stables guy for proffesional and if you playing 1 time 50/100 it even 10x hard to grind out 3/6 stacks (especially if you run bad at those highstakes)

Re: Best omaha hi/lo toernement player in the world and highstakes o8 cash player

Hi Bike!

I always enjoy your posts, but for a long time I thought you and onmybicycle were the same person Who do you play as in Ipoker?

I have a question about no-one giving you action. I am a long term donator at 08 above .25/50.....my pattern seems to be build up my bankroll at 25 or 50NL/PL and then go and lose it all at 3/6 or 2/4 on Saturday night when I'm drunk. I'm an actual real donkey in other words, I collect lower guys money and deliver it upstairs.

I'm not asking for advice about O8, cause my main leak is being a regfish who drinks while he plays, and I already know that. But what I will say is that, for me personally, there are only two people who I won't play when I feel like donking off my roll, and that's you and Sirens.

Why? Cause I'm afraid? No, I've had HU sessions with both of you that I've won at before, you don't "scare" me at the tables (I'm gonna lose that roll eventually anyway probably), and the only one that really beats my ass so much I won't play HU is Shanis actually.

But honestly, I don't want to play you guys cause you act like kind of pricks at the tables. Unfriendly, rude, arrogant. It's no fun playing you.

I'm sure in real life you are a nice guy. I'm sure in real life Sirens is a total prick.

But honestly, if I open the tables and see Purple there I'll play him HU happily cause he's a friendly guy (to me at least) and I can have a nice time drinking and playing cards. I don't care so much if he or 9 Ball John or some other reg gets my money in the end. But I don't want you or Sirens to get it, simply because it's actually no fun playing you (and yes, I can have fun while I'm losing, and no you don't smash me so fast that I don't wanna play you).

As I say, I like reading your posts and I bet you are fine IRL, but maybe you don't get much action from the fishes cause you aren't so nice to play with?

Played yesterday some .50/1 cap NL o8 and got crushed. What's your opinion about those games? I think that's only gamble. You need alot of luck there.

Still, probably is, at least HU. Playing 6-max with donkeys is another matter. Also, variance...
