Bad run in Sunday tournys - But I flop quads!

I had a terrible weekend, in terms of tournament poker. Not terrible 'Oh I run bad, Oh I was card dead, Oh I had to shove there, etc, etc'. Or terrible in the sense that, you're playing a live tournament in Vegas, and it feels like you're sitting in a walk-on freezer. Terrible in the sense that.. you don't even get to play in any of them. I COMPLETELY missed the set of tournaments I was supposed to play, and that has made me a sad panda for the day.

Are those quads? Those look like quads.
On the small upside, I felt the urge to play some poker, but not just regular NLHE. I got bored and decided to play some Omaha Hi(micros, yay!), put in a decent session playing that. I was even so lucky to flop quads on the very first hand of my Omaha session, and even got paid off for it.



All in all, just another day trying to get my game together.

  4. I always think about the abilities you need to be good in poker, is it worth it, you don't only have to know the basics/maths of the game. You have to be good in deceiving/reading people.
