I downloaded and got some surprising results on some hands. I have not compared it to two dimes so I don't know how accurate is the results. The surprising result I got was after trying a few hands I wondered what would happen if I chose 10 random hands like is dealt at party. Then I calculated the odds of winning before the flop. Three hands were given a 0% chance of winning. I think the 10 hands must have overloaded the program somehow because one of the was AA73 off suit, also a 7622 and 9634. Can the cards in omaha arrange themselves so AA73 has no chance of winning? Probably a program error. Here is the link:

No I just thought fellow PLO players would like to have it. I was very surprised that in a 10 handed game there are usually some hands drawing dead before the flop. It is according to which 12 cards are left after the 40 are dealt. This is something I did not know. /images/graemlins/shocked.gif

If both aces are dead, they aren't suited, and the other two cards don't work together, then yes, AAxx can have no chance of winning. Considering how many cards are dealt out, I wouldn't be surprised if several hands are drawing dead preflop every deal.

I found that even suited AA can draw dead if only 2 or less of the suits remain in the 12 cards left and the remaining cards must create a set or straight in someones hand. Of course if that someone folds they can still win or tie with a pair of aces.
