I don't claim to be a great Omaha-8 player, but damn, it is fun so a $10+1 tournament on Bovada caught my eye.
You can always talk yourself into playing just about any cards. Look, I have two suits. Look, I have A-3 among my goodies and maybe a 2 will flop, heh heh. I believe I'm better than most at resisting playing bad hands early in the tournament. Some say the flops are cheap, why not? Well, you seem to hit part of the flop each time and then are tempted to continue -- that's why not.
When we were heads up, there were big swings and all-in on almost every hand, even though it was pot-limit. The aggression was ramped up, and I could have won on any of several hands, but the same could be said for him.
