  tamar: You're ahead of Grischuk, <notyetagm>, no mean feat.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <tamar>: The time I want to be ahead of Grischuk is heads-up for the $10K Pot Limit Omaha bracelet at the World Series of Poker, when I have top set and the nut-flush draw on the flop and all the money is in the middle.

cha-CHING cha-CHING!!!

  tamar: <perfidious> I always heard about the famous Omaha stakes...
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <tamar>: Very tasty and all.
Sep-04-13  Shams: <perfidious> Is PLO still the game of choice in Europe? I used to deal poker and we definitely considered it the hardest game to deal. Luckily we never spread it at our card room.

Pot-limit is extremely positional, is it not?

  perfidious: <Shams>: So far as I know, Omaha is still the favoured game Over There: when I played online, most of my opponents were European, even after France set up when the government decided to collect their share of the pie several years ago.

PLO is positional, but there are many styles of play. Playing a super-tight game alone will not get the job done.

Sep-04-13  boz: Any videos out there from this event?
