9288 makes a better phone number than an Omaha starting hand, but I did chuckle knowing you sat down with 270 dollars and zero knowledge of the game.

you have to atleast use two of your hole cards in omaha.  pp didnt pay the wrong person your just extremely new to omaha.and next time you may want to figure out the rules of the game you plan on playing before you start wagering on it.this will be the nicest post you get.
I like how you are talking down to him, yet you are wrong yourself. You have to use EXACTLY two hole cards.Word.Zach
You mean my quad deuces in the hole are no good?
Not unless your name is smiddywap.......
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.
Well, thats just because Lee Jones doesn't like to follow rules, just look at how rigged his site is.

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
you only want advice from people who have cashed in a wsop tourney...how about all those people who dont bother to play tourneys and make a living playing these games???
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?
there are plenty of more than capable stud and omaha players here...judging by your initial post, anyone who knows just the basic rules of these games is a jedi master compared to you.you might want to check out the omaha strat forums by the way....there is often some good advice floating around.

Al,You don't need advice from a bracelet winner. You need to read a beginners book and figure out how the game is played. Learn basics, before you try to learn advanced strategies.You don't have to be an expert to know that 9882 is unplayable from any position, and you should've folded on every street.Good luck learning thoughYou'll be fine is you have 1/2 of brain.

Aaron Cantor posts under the OP's SN. Happened in my home game last night. And mind you, we have been playing omaha for about 11 years or so in this game. Board is five different cards and dude says "I have a boat." Uh, no you don't. Sure I do.....I have two J's and a 9 in my hand to go with the J-9 on the board. Great, your set loses to the flush. No, I have a boat. Took about five minutes to resolve (didn't help that the guy with the "boat" knows everything about everthing that exists, as in, he is never wrong).

This is good advice and in a surprisingly nice way. That hand is soooooo bad that you almost want to throw it away if you were in the BB and it was not raised to you. You are taking a chance playing it for free (almost). Under no circmustances can you call this hand UTG! You really need to read little on this game before you play anymore or I GUARANTEE you will be a losing player at this. Read these articles and you will be 1000% improved.

These are the kinds of donks who cash in WPT events!Bah!:club:
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.
That little face down there is laughing... that means i was kidding.
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 be there Wed Feb 1 thru Fri Feb3 then to Vegas. This will be me and the guys 4th consecutive superbowl weekend trip one of my buddies is an omaha 8 specialist and loves beer!! We have a commerce home game waiting for us on Wed. starting at 10pm with 4 seats left 100 buy nlhe. PM me if you want in. Also looking at playing in the 1000 nlhe tourny Feb 2.

It is funny that a guy that has played a major buy in tourney doesn't know the first rule of Omaha.Don't be afraid to read SSII, just for a heads up.

That's because MOST of these guys that play major buyin tourney's are just Holdem Donkey's.....They think Holdem is the only game...they don't realize that Holdem was a game invented for idiots.

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.

Hey Al,I'd be happy to give you some advice. I have cashed in two Omaha Hi-Lo events and one Stud event in the past five years. I'm looking for someone to mentor and I'm willing to talk it over with you. My only price is the big toe from the right foot of your first born son. No questions asked.Speedz
