I have been running well.
Well, I have been running. I got taken for 5 bucks by a girl; that wasn't cool. That was one of three SNGs that I lost in New Braunfels this weekend. I also lost $32 in HORSE (actually, it was HORS). But I rebounded well in Poker League III by winning $216 on Sunday. Pile that on top of a $90 in week #1 of PLIII, and I am up $306 in PLIII. For 2007, I am up $637 in Poker Leagues due to a big run on the end of PLII plus the results to date of PLIII.
There is one big reason for the results: Omaha 8.
It is unbelievable how easy that game is when you actually play O/8 and don't play Holdem strategy in an O/8 game. My ability to eke out much more in Holdem is limited and waning, but O/8, well that is the new frontier for me.
By frontier, I only mean the opportunity to win in the Poker League; I would get slaughtered in Vegas in O/8. I am still, on an absolute basis, better at Holdem; I am just relatively better in the Poker League at O/8.
But enough about me...
KTL is the new Razz God. All bow down to the Razz God. Personally, I couldn't spell Razz if you spotted me two or more Zs, but KTL could. PLIII plays at my house next and we will play HORSE. I will fold for R, but play HOSE hard.
