(Remember, they like to see you betting big. It is
hell on variance, but bet bigger when you can and
grind it out when you're behind.) Then their server
crashes and breaks the spell. Fine, we've shown them
enough action today to look like a gambler. A cashout
now would give a profit of $150. Not bad for less
than two hours total work right? Not exactly, we're
still earning basically just the bonus, at the rate
of a little over $20 an hour. Here's why. By playing
in this style (that is, betting enough to look like
a gambler), we always risk having a losing session.
The $150 win could just as easily have been a loss.
So today's win has to carry the losses tomorrow and
the day after. There are plenty of places where we
invested hours of time, only to walk away with no
bonus and a little less than we paid in. Spend hours
failing to collect a bonus a couple times in a row,
and you'll think this is a really stupid pursuit.
The May an casino is now basically played out.we'll
wait a few days, play some more limited amounts, basically
becoming a normal looking statistic that gets lost
among all the others. But the goal from now on is
not to make a show, but to keep variance low and protect
what we have.
Cashout Maya for a $200 win with $3,000 in action,
which is six times the deposit.
Omaha-8, a flushed board means you can count on someone
having the flush-often the nut flush, since suited
aces are commonly played before the flop, Straights
occur much more frequently, especially low straights.
Low and middle sets get beaten all the time, and paired
boards yield full houses much more often than W Texas.
The biggest mistake that new players make in Ornaha-8
is to overvalue made hands and draws after the flop.
They will bet and raise with hands that are strong
now but unlikely to remain so, and they will call
to draw to hands that are short of the nuts when they
should fold. You will make the most profits when they
play their mediocre hands to the showdown or make
their second-best hands at the same time you make
the nuts. Remember, the split action in Omaha-8 often
produces multiple raisers. This gives players who
have the nuts one way or the other the opportunity
to re-raise each other, pulling careless callers along
for the ride. Don't be one of these callers. The prospect
of capped raises makes playing second-best hands-or
draws to second-best hands-disastrously expensive.
