I finally held it
I've always heard that A-2-A-3 double-suited is the best starting hand in Omaha-8, but I've never held it. I've played O-8 limit with a half-kill in casinos, and I play online for cheap stakes late at night when I'm bored. Today, I took the plunge, and played in a cheapo, online $5 Omaha-8 MTT, and was finally dealt it (see image above). I raised, and everyone folded. C'est la vie.
I'm not sure I've ever played an Omaha-8 tournament before, although I might have in the Sunday night Poker Slut tournament series sponsored by Gadzooks.
Omaha-8 tournaments, oh my! What's next, maybe Stud-7 H/L tournaments like VeryJosie or Ken Provo play? Why not? They are probably fun.
I did manage to sneak in the money to (basically) get my entry fee back - w00t.
