Good start towards my 25th straight profitable month...

All was NLO8 except for the PL$1000 stack lost to Gameover

Default Tough competition in the SNGs...

You would think moving up to the $55+$5 turbos would lead to better play. Luckily, not so much...

The second hand of the game:
$55+$5 Omaha Hi/Lo Pot Limit - Level I (10/20)

Preflop: UTG folds, UTG+1 raises 50 to 70, 2 folds, Hero raises 170 to 240, CO folds, Button calls, 2 folds, UTG+1 raises to 750 to 990, Hero raises 510 to 1500, Button calls, UTG+1 calls.

Nice one Pred, I've had 3 losing months in 2 years, the last one was a disaster, 5 figures. Luckily I had my 2 best ever months prior to it and here's hoping the coming one will be good for us!

seems pretty clear to me that no mid to high stakes plo8 players ever post, because if they did it would obviously be anonymously.

gameover is too busy perfecting his PLO8$5K heads up matches to post on forums [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

if majority of wins came from shortstacking/ratholing NLO8 then i'd say you got lucky.

if it came from PLO8 or deepstack NLO8, i'd say you are playing/running well.

Unless my datamine is jacked up, I dont think a lot of it is from shortstacking/ratholing on FTP (no huge profits that would help this graph, did win shortstacking but would only be small piece of this graph)

Pred - most of this on Stars?

Yeah I'm not sure if I get that shortstacking and ratholing in higher stakes NLO8...That just doesn't seem like a long-term viable strategy to beat the game...It isn't like hold 'em where you are going to be an OVERWHELMING favorite when the money goes in...I mean since you shortstack it's probably not a stress on the bankroll, but it seems like its a high variance, low EV way to play the game...Yeah you'll have your days where you win a ton of money, hold your 60:40 edges for full pots, hold your 55:45 for whole pots, but that has to eventually even out...Seems like too much flux on the bankroll for very limited EV...
