Well i finally got to play some live Omaha hi/lo in Vegas, thought i would share my experiences. I sat down at the venetian where they regularly run 4 - 8, and 8 - 16 limit games with a half kill (they also spread a 8 - 10 mix game with all the HORSE games plus 2 - 7 triple, Badugi, and PLO if you get enough). The table was 9 seated and was mostly filled with regulars who seem to play every morning. I sat down and proceeded to literally get 4 out scooped the first 4 - 10 hands. Then the following hand came up in a kill pot, sorry there is no converter.BB Hero [ K h 10 h 2c 3 c ]Action: folds to button who raises, small blind folds, hero calls. Heads upFlop: J h Qh 4 c Action: Hero Bets, button raises, hero 3-bets, button callsTurn: A sAction: Hero checks, button bets, hero raises, button 3-bets, Hero 4-betsRiver: 7 dAction: Hero bets, button raises, Hero re-raises, button callsI dont remember how much was in the pot but it put me up a little after the brutal beats. The guy was nice and claimed he had the Ace high flush draw and the second nut low. Guess i got luckyOverall it was fun, about half the table was nice and knew what they were doing, the other half knew the rules and thought they were experts, but played only low hands. If the board came high, one bet would usually take it down for me. Only pet peave was that more than once i had to correct the dealer or player with what the high and low hands were. Other than that i highly recommend the Venetian for Omaha hi/lo. Great cocktail and food service and they treat their players well.
