200/400 PLO

Well i decided to give it a crack which you may have seen if you read the comments in the last blog. I had manage to spin my roll on full tilt up to a six figure sum so decided to give it a go. So far after 3 sessions and 1353 hands i am $129000 up. In a game that size its not a significant win, but as i decided to have a shot with a limited bankroll i'm happy to have made a good start. If i lose what i have on full tilt i'll go back to my normal games.

I actually think i have been running badly as well. Especially against David Benjamine. I have been playing the capped pot limit Omaha 200/400 as well, and in one session last night i played 6 capped pots against him (cap is set at $16000 so $32000 in every pot). In each of them when the money went in i was at least a 38% up to 71% chance to win and lost all 6. My tracker says i am down $150000 to Benjamine so far... and $40000 to Ivey (see hand below)

Played a huge amount of big pots here are a few of them!!

lol at the railbirds!!

Awesome, great to see you doing so well. What do you feel your edge is like in these games though, too soon to tell I guess? Also how does the capping affect the dynamics of the game? Keep it up!

Incredible stuff Ben. You have the heart of a Lion and balls of a gorrilla!. Good Luck m8.

here's a tip: don't play with durrr :D

Milkybarkid said...

yeh its too short term to work out the edge i guess. I definitely am confident that i can do well in the game but the bankroll is a bit restricting if i start badly.....

I liked the capped game. it requires a different strategy. Alot of players raise preflop and then continuation bet the flop, which i don't think is the best way to play a capped game because you become too pot committed.

Still got some money in full tilt so will try again when the game looks good!

Nice play. I found the hand is easier to follow like this:
