OK, so I'm trying to learn how to play some games other than NLHE so I've been trying my hand at Omaha and 7-stud. Although on this Omaha hand to follow I would think that I would play my 9h to complete the flush and give me the winning hand. Can someone please explain why PP played my 88 to give me 2 pair with the board and not the 9h to give me the flush? Is this mistake common, or is it not a mistake as far as the game is concerned. ThanksAl***************************** Hand History for Game 3346305519 ***** 0/0 Omaha Game Table (PL) - Tue Jan 10 03:13:39 EST 2006 Table Table 64836 (6 max) (No DP) (Real Money) -- Seat 3 is the button Total number of players : 6 Seat 1: alibaba233 ( $18.50) Seat 2: warchild76 ( $113) Seat 3: rosebud8439 ( $657.18) Seat 4: pantiley ( $204.25) Seat 5: snakebitten1 ( $168.90) Seat 6: Al_Smooth ( $270.95) pantiley posts small blind (1)snakebitten1 posts big blind (2)warchild76 posts big blind + dead (3)** Dealing down cards **Dealt to Al_Smooth [ 9h, 2c, 8c, 8s ]Al_Smooth calls (2)alibaba233 folds.warchild76 checks.rosebud8439 folds.pantiley calls (1)snakebitten1 checks.** Dealing Flop ** : [ 4d, 4h, 6h ]pantiley checks.snakebitten1 checks.Al_Smooth checks.warchild76 bets (8.55)pantiley folds.snakebitten1 calls (8.55)Al_Smooth calls (8.55)** Dealing Turn ** : [ Ah ]snakebitten1 checks.Al_Smooth checks.warchild76 bets (10)snakebitten1 folds.Al_Smooth calls (10)** Dealing River ** : [ 7h ]Al_Smooth checks.warchild76 checks.** Summary **Main Pot: $51.95 | Rake: $2.70Board: [ 4d 4h 6h Ah 7h ]alibaba233 balance $18.50, didn't bet (folded)warchild76 balance $143.40, bet $21.55, collected $51.95, net +$30.40 [ 6d 5h 2h 5c ] [ a flush, ace high -- Ah,7h,6h,5h,2h ]rosebud8439 balance $657.18, didn't bet (folded) pantiley balance $202.25, lost $2 (folded)snakebitten1 balance $158.35, lost $10.55 (folded) Al_Smooth balance $250.40, lost $20.55 [ 9h 2c 8c 8s ] [ two pairs, eights and fours -- Ah,8c,8s,4d,4h ]WTF???!!!

in omaha you have to play 2 from your hand and 3 from the board, not just 1 from your hand and 4 from the board

These posts never get old.You didn't have a flush.Please put a little more effort into learning the game before you play for money.

easy now cowboy...I've more than proven myself at NLHE for the people who post on this site, but as I said, I'm trying to learn some other games. I openly admit I'm a newb at Stud or Omaha or anything other than NLHE, but easy on the "donk" stuff.

If anyone here has cashed in a WSOP 7-card Stud or Omaha event, I'd love some beginners advice if you've got the time. Thanks!Al

No harm done, but you and I both know how quickly a simple mistake like mine can spiral downward on this site. If I ever see you at a WPT event I'll buy you a beer! Cool? The LA Classic is coming up in Feb, you gonna be there?

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there aren't too many of those type of players you mention trolling a fan style forum site. However there's plenty of amateurs who have played the games and tourny's long enough to have cashed in a major tournament. Not to mention that to the cash players here in Los Angeles at Commerce Casino, the "lifers" consider those to be dead games. The same players every day just pushing money back and forth between them with no new, dead money to be found. But why argue the semantics?

That's what I thought too but I phoned Lee Jones and he was all like "No, and how did you get my phone number?" Whatever, it must have been a Sunday.
