You da man!!!

I never play PLO so just inform me; is there a reason you mini raise in PLO (typically you don't in Hold'em). Were you trying to avoid building big pots preflop and tangling with big stacks?

Congratulations William

I looked in for a while just after the 2+2 SnG and you were cruising, then got called to a SnG game and forgot to check back. Nice one.

Only partially makes up for finishing on bubble of 2+2 game but it'll help heal the wound I'm sure /images/graemlins/grin.gif

Yeah great result, I was trying to keep an eye on you whilst playing some SnGs so I couldn't cheer you on that much, but you seemed to do OK without my moral suppport. /images/graemlins/wink.gif

Thanks again everyone.

LB, to answer your question about mini-raises, tournament omaha is often raising with AA, wich comes around much more often than in Texas, so a min raise, in early or middle position, usually means good cards (KK or QQ) and as it is pot-limit, is building the pot for a substantial raise on the flop.

However, I think you are still thinking NL and what you considered a mini raise was probably just a pot raise.

Take care,

Thanks W,

BTW I am slow, but not that slow, they were minimum raises. Blinds 3000-6000 you raised to 12000 with KK then flopped a set of kings.

Have a little faith in your disciples Mr. Top of the Heap!

Again, all the best on all of your success.

Ok, I remember that. It's just as I said then, testing the ground for an eventual AA hand /images/graemlins/grin.gif
