Tried my luck in a little S&G with 8 other players…buy in at 0.50$…man do I like High Low! If your hand is good for either way you’ve got the chance for a real scoop (getting both the high and low pot), if you’ve got a big hand you’ve got the chance to get the high pot (and maybe even the low pot with A-x) and if you’ve got a low hand you’ve got the chance for the low and sometimes for the high too (wheel).

Held my own all night and was able to scoop some hands with nice high full houses (no low hand) and some wheels. Was the chip leader most of the way and was able to push some players around and even eliminate 3 players before the bubble! Nice…when it came to the bubble my mojo somehow took a break and I was down to short stack, but was able to bust out the fourth player of the night to bump me right up into the race and the money. Busted out another player to take a 2:1 chip lead (just over 10k to his just under 5k) and a secured second place. Played back and forth just to make some donkey calls and go down to 1:2 in chips…no way back as we split most of the following pots…then it was time for me to go…he busted my straight with a full house.

So, a second place in my first Omaha H/L tournament try, not bad…although I feel I should have won, but hey…I don’t complain…there’s always a next time 😉

Stats:

  • Buy-In: 0.50$ + 0.10 fee
  • 9 players
  • Finished 2nd of 9
  • Hands played: 113
  • Money awarded: 1.35$

Back to almost even…nice 🙂
