$25 PL Omaha on Empire Poker. Table has been unusually tight. About three others (besides me) have cleaned out the occasional fish that drops by and we've all built up stacks above $75. In this hand, I've got a little over $90 and the BB has just under $80, so I've got him covered.

I'm dealt 3/images/graemlins/club.gif5/images/graemlins/heart.gif6/images/graemlins/club.gif7/images/graemlins/heart.gif in middle position. It's folded around to me, and I limp. It's folded around to the BB, who checks. So we're heads-up to the flop, and there's nothing in the pot. ($1.25)

Flop comes down 2/images/graemlins/heart.gif4/images/graemlins/heart.gif8/images/graemlins/club.gif and I [censored] myself. Especially when the BB leads out for the full pot, $1.25. I raise the full pot, to $5. The BB re-raises the full pot to $16.25. I think for about five seconds, decide I'm up against pocket fours or pocket eights and re-raise to $50.

The BB thinks forever. He uses up his time bank. He types in the chatbox, "do u really have 88?" Finally, he folds. I show.

"XXXXXXXXXXX win $57.50 from the pot with seven-high."

You made him fold when he was a decent underdog.

You had a monster, its no insult to them having folded to 7 high. BTW, what name do you use on Empire? I am on a good 4 hours a day under I11eagle so free to say whats up if you're at the 25 tables

Actually you should only be able to feel like $700,000. Uncle Sam took 30% out up front.

If he had a set of fours with no flush/straight draw, I'm about a 54-46 favorite. He should not fold getting 3-1 on his money. Folding is a clear error. This is one of those Omaha situations where even if we could both see our opponent's cards, we'd both still be correct in putting our money in on the flop.
