Foxwoods tripMy Brother Was in town from LA this weekend and he had a Hankering to play some Omahaaaaa
so Yesterday Ron, Rake Feeder and I went to the Woods and Saw the Wonder of it all.

We got there about 3pm and Went and had a nice quick Lunch at Panera Bread. then went down to the Poker
room and Signed up for the 4/8 omaha h/l half kill game. there were 4 names ahead of us with only 1 table running
But lucky for us all the names ahead of us had either left or given up on playing O8.

My Brother Ron got a seat after about 30 min and I got one not 10 mins later. with Ron in the 9 and me in the 2 we didnt have much chance to talk so I ended up moving down to the 10 seat and watched the new person in the 2 hit 3 hands in a row.
This game is full of OMATARDS jesus christ was it painfull. But that is what I get for playing Omaha. with a bunch of
Chasers. I know the games about the draws but people were calling down with Crap and hitting.I got up after about 2 hours down $150. I just couldn't hit a flop to save my life. lots of good starting hands that went no where.

After that I decided to play 4/8 limit and this wasn't any better. seats 1,2,3,4,5 were all over the age of 65 and atleast 4 of them limped into every hand. AA cracked by 23s this was a common theme at this table these guys had almost no starting hand selection. i ended up down only 20 after about 5 hours at the 4/8 table. Which I was pretty happy about since I just couldn't get any traction and the Old Folks were on fire.

Rake Feeder Had a good night so head on over to his Gay online Diary for his writeup.
