Presenting Some Opinions

1) Qwackers pushing A2o at LJ early in a deepstack tourney is foolish. A mildly observant poker player would conclude that she would not fold.
2) Although I can respect the commitment to the read and believe it is important to go with your read, I can't imagine me investing 70+ BB into a pot pre-flop with AQo (or even TT) as caller or raiser.
3) I have no idea why watching LJ catch cards in bloggaments tilts Hoy, I have no idea why my catching cards playing cash tilts LJ. It's not the 1st time it's happened probably won't be last, shouldn't you both be used to seeing it? Maybe it's a NY lawyer thing to not adapt to this?
Chat below is from last night's DS Omaha, Lee held 2d3s7dQs
*** FLOP *** [As 4h Ks]
TomSkyler bets 300
Lee Watkinson raises to 1,200
TomSkyler raises to 3,900
Lee Watkinson calls 2,700
*** TURN *** [As 4h Ks] [7s]
Lee Watkinson checks
TomSkyler bets 2,230, and is all in
Dealer: TomSkyler shows two pair, Aces and Kings
Dealer: Lee Watkinson shows a flush, Ace high
Dealer: Lee Watkinson wins the pot (12,560) with a flush, Ace high
TomSkyler (Observer): way to push and pray Lee
Lee Watkinson: ty'
TomSkyler (Observer): you were 35%, why not Re-Re-raise?
BustingYourNuts (Observer): lol
I share to point out even if you have won a bracelet at $10k buy-in Omaha someone may tell you that you misplayed the hand.
Lee is actually 42% to win hand on flop, after TomSkyler re-raises he is committed to call turn bet if flush hits and he is holding set, Lee can fold if board pairs turn. Not pushing flop makes sense to me.

Lee knocked me out in 6th (4 paid), all in pre my AsKsAcKd lost to his Ah5h7c8h.
AAKQ would have won. so sad.

Bayne, nice game last night in the Bodog, and I had it both times I pushed at you. I raised the first time with 9-10 of hearts, a good button hand, and I flopped trips and did not put you on a 9, so I led you along and figured a push at the end would look suspicious and maybe you would call. You sniffed it out of course.

The second time I held JJ and I don't really like my play there on the turn. If I think I have the best hand, bet pot and try to get a call from you. Then push the river possibly. My push was something that will only be called by a hand that had me beat. Then again I thought you might call out of tilt but you are too good for that.

Good playing with you and hope we can do it soon.

I am NY lawyer, and the only thing that tilts me is the Eagles.

Lee actually does chat, I give him credit for putting up with a lot of crap during Omadraw tourneys.
