kjbdkbdbwedlbedwlbwlbedwlbfwjefewljbfewlkbflkbewffewlknbfewn is what i think i typed after that hand!

Two outered in the biggest pot i have ever played... so brutal.

Luckily today i recovered everything i lost yesterday.

Playing the William Hill Grand Prix on Thursday. My heat looks like this:

HEAT D Thur 19th
1 Antonio Esfandiari USA
2 Ram Vaswani GB
3 Keith Hawkins GB
4 JP Kelly GB
5 Sean Murphy IRE
6 Ben Grundy GB
7 Shelley Mullett GB Qual
8 Sami Yusuf GB Qual

Looks like it could be a fun heat with serial bluffers Ram, JP, Camel and Antonio in the heat.

Best of luck for Thursday, some good players in that heat!

I've been looking at getting started in Omaha and wondered if there are any books or articles that you could recommend for a total novice. I know the rules etc but am unsteady on what would be counted as a good or bad starting hand etc.

Any pointers would be massively appreciated.

There's a section on Omaha in Super System 2, but I'm no expert so can't tell u if it's any good...

Who on earth is that duhfin???

What a loon, so sick.

No idea who Duhfin is but i hope he comes back soon.

Regarding Omaha books. I have only read TJ Cloutier's Championship Omaha which was ok.

Rolf Slotboom's book has had good reviews, and you can find details of how to buy it on his website.
