I was doing okay in the Mookie until sellthekids started hitting A-rag like it owed him money.

Key of course to hitting Ace rag is to shove it or call it quickly because you really believe you are ahead. I have tried to adjust my game to believe but sadly I can not overcome the knowledge that face cards outrank napkins.

More and more I"m hesitant to shove with AA in Omaha because this shit seems to happen to me every single time I do. As good as your hand was, I think you were behind because he had a lot of your outs. Brutal.

we each have 1 flush draw, each hold 1 of the other guys flush draw cards.

I am 24% to hit the 10, a few of those occurrences he also hits a straight, a few of the times he hits straight I hit ts over boat.

Chop occurs 52%, I win 27% he wins 20%. Got to like the small edge, it is why you can't fold QQ pre in a blogger tourney because usually the donkey has A-rag, sometimes has AK and on rare occasion has AA or KK
