I raise from CO and get jammed fading jackAce:
Street Won Won/Saw Won/Total
Sadly 4th time I got KK I was UTG, raised and everyone folded :(
It's late and could supply hand histories but bed calls.
As a rebuttal to Don's theory I sent ScottMc three hand histories where I requested time to check my pot odds vs. assessment of outs. Clearly none were slow rolls as accused since I was chasing every time. Despite what my new buddy googol would suggest sometimes you just want to take some time to consider options at crucial times.
And I started playing blogger cash without getting crap for cards. I was in violation of rule #1 (no cash with LJ) but we ended night civil towards each other since bad beat I delivered was for a smaller pot and $16k in cashes in a week has mellowed her.

Skill series is PL HE tonight
MATH is at 10 ET Monday, I am a little crispy from points race but may show up. Part of me wants to just shut down PC for a few days but there are only 20 left in $3k Pl O8 as I write and I am 13th.
This sucks once first guy calls everyone else is closer to priced in because nothing is a big favorite in PLO pre.*** FLOP *** [Ac Kd 6s]
I thought I would also present an Omaha situation that comes up more than you would expect:
Ideally in Poker everytime you call an all-in you are getting in money as favorite but in PLO goal is getting in your money good.
I will use a very straightforward PLO hand to explain:
Player A holds 4s5s7h8h.
Player B holds 8cJdQcKd.
Flop is 6d9dTc.
On the flop Player A has the nut straight, if he bets pot and jams a re-raise he is getting his money into the pot with the nuts. Clearly he is "Getting his Money in Ahead"
Player B has KQ high on the flop, but he has 14 straight outs + 5 additional flush outs + backdoor flush potential. Because of outs he is 75% to win. Player B can got to the felt with this hand because he is getting his "money in as the favorite", which is the preferred place to be.
If instead the betting is such that player A plays to keep pot small on flop and players still have money behind.
If turn is a brick such a 2h.
Player A still holds the nut straight, player B still has KQ high and 19 outs.
At this point if Player A bets pot, player B can look at his hand and see the 19 outs. Calling a pot size bet on the turn gives pot odds of 2:1 and player B's odds of hitting the hand are 42.5%.
Since odds of hitting hand are greater than payoff player B is still getting a favorable gambling situation so is "getting money in good".
Changing the hand of player A to
TsTh7h8h changes the odds so now the 2 hands are 50/50.
8d7cAdAc or 8d7dTsTh in Player A's hands makes situation worse for player B.

Another noted points whore got a similar e-mail, this of course led to a prop bet over who could clear more of bonus. At a nickel a point I think a near personal record 21k points is required.
677/day seems so easy to achieve, just what would I do with the 60 bonus medals.
The genius of the marketing is even if every player in a ring game is getting a nickel a point back from FullTilt they still clear 55 cents a point in rake while everyone is increasing playing volume. Odds of busting chasing bonus are sadly greater than zero.
I bubbled in Omahaha tourney in FullTilt. I went out from BB 31st with 27 paying. In a rare move I was an 85:15 favorite post flop with a pp, board pair, oesd and flush draw against a smaller pp, same board pair and lower oesd (with me holding 2 of his outs, with 2 other outs giving me flush). Offsuit straight hit turn and I fall short. Managed to salve my wounds playing 6-max PLO on a 1/2 $80 cap table. It was silly how often draws hit for me and missed for others for a 9 cap profit.
