Trying to forget this hand....

After my posting the other night i had a very interesting session on the Omaha £10/£20 table.

I managed to win another £10000+ pot with just two pairs after i had bet with 89TQ on a 467 board. It all went in on the turn when the Q came. I made a £3000 bet hoping my opponent would pass and he called with 47 and the river came a 6 to give me a better two pair. I managed to get up to £27000 in front of me then i lost a £20000 pot i am still gutted about. On a flop of 58K rainbow i called a £200 bet from a player with 677Q. Turn a 9 to give me the nuts plus the Q flush draw. I check knowing he would be bet again which he did £600. I reraise another £1800. He reraises again £3000 more and i set him all in for another £5000. Total pot around £20000. He shows TJJK with a Jack flush draw which is of course dead to my Queen flush draw. River a black Queen to give him a better straight. Switched my computer off straight after that as i was in total shock. I had been beating up on this guy for hours and had taken about 10k off him so he got his revenge big style. Still won £9000 but it felt like i had lost.

I have decided to definitely play in both the WSOP main event in July plus a couple of the warm up events. Tempted by the $10000 PL Omaha but my tournament Omaha play has been bad of late so will need to address that if i decide to play. Will probably play a satelite for it. After that i am going to play in my first WPT event in Paris.

Am having a few days away from the tables online. Partially because i am gutted about that £20k pot i lost and i am moving house at the moment so am very busy with that. The posts will become frequent again soon.......

Ouch!
As a bit of a novice I'm sheepishly asking for any advice in making my first strides in the mean streets of online pokering.

Any tips are gratefully received.
