The only good thing that has come out of this is I went to our local casino last night in the thoughts of playing live for the first time but they had no o8 games and the lowest limit they had was 4/8 lhe and I wasn't rolled for that so I played BJ for 6 hours and made $675.

But other than that I am so freaking bored. I have read every article on the net about poker. I have watched every parody I can find on you tube. I don't know what I am going to do to fill this poker need. Owell enough of that, thanks for being my online therapist.

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

This movie quote pretty much sums up the state of online Omaha 08 in the USA.


"That's great. That's just f***ing great, man! Now what the f**k are we supposed to do? We're in some real pretty s**t now man! Game's over man, game's f**king over! What the f**k are we gonna do now? What are we gonna do?"--Bill Paxton--Aliens (1986)

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

To answer OP's question, I'm going to be playing at home and at the local cardrooms.

WSOP starts in 5 weeks or so. Should be the best one in a few years because of pent-up US dollars in play.

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

I'll be playing at Wynn and other Vegas casinos a lot more, especially once the WSOP gets here. Btw, I would definitely be in favor of trying to get the PLO8/Big O games at Wynn instead of at the actual WSOP this year. If others are interested in this, lemme know and I can start talking to people ASAP.

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

i will be in vegas starting monday, I will be living in the venetian poker room playing 8/16 or 15/30 if it runs, i will have my name on a list for 1/2plo8 if anyone wants to try and get a game going. Last year just about this time there was a plo8 game running there so hopefully we can get one going.

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

When you go to a place like cake network to play, there are a bunch of poker rooms that use cake network. My question is are you only playing against people from that skin or does the network share players from all skins.

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

I found a local weekly 1/2 plo8 game to play in. I get A234ds and flop 23K. I bet $12, guy on my left raises to $30, I flat. Turn comes 5 (yay!), I check, he bets $80, I call. River is an off T, and I lead enough to put him all in (about $175), he snap calls with A69J 4 suited. I think I might have found what I'll be doing now that online poker is done for

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

for any players located in the SF bay area.. ( i know there are a few on here), i highly suggest the game at the oaks on thursdays. I just got back from there and its really a great game. Its 6/12 on thursdays with a half kill. There were probably two tight players in the game, me n some old timer, everyone else there is just waiting for hold em or enjoys looking at 4 cards and cant fold. Lucky chances is doing the same thing on tuesdays but this seems to be a much better game since the 10/20 has died.

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

As far as live poker is concerned in the PA/AC area, the Taj often has a 5/10 full kill O8 game that goes during the summer, but it hasn't been going much offseason aside from some weekends. Parx has been getting a 4-8 game going but it breaks easily and sometimes they call the game but no one shows, so a few more players would help with the game's stability. Borgata's 10-20 is the most stable game.

Re: Where are US O8 players going to play now?

venetian, bellagio, rio. in that order.

i always wished FT had put kill pots in their O8 games. it would have made the games so much better with a 3'rd blind, especially if the kill acted in turn. i love seeing a nit scoop a 10BB pot and then frustratingly post the kill blind UTG+1, have UTG raise it, nit calls, then it gets 3-bet on its way back to him. oh good times. on my way.

i'd love to help but i'm strictly playing LO8 this year. i love Big O, but i think it should be pointed out that the variance is considerably higher than in PLO8 from my experience, although that's probably only 40hrs@35 hands/hr in the 5card game. i think 5card PLO8 might be more sick than NL triple draw.

Maybe I'll see you there. I rarely play live and I've never been to Oaks, but there just aren't any decent limit (or plo) omaha8 games anywhere in the Bay. The last time I went to Bay 101 there was a wait list 18 people long for the 4/8 game and they refused to open up another table.
