Now THIS Is What You Call Lots of Outs...

aka Yes, Virginia, it's still rigged.

MP2 ($14.55)
Hero ($9.50)
CO ($31.75)
Button ($45.90)
SB ($49.50)

Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Qc, Ad, Kd, 8c.

1 fold, UTG+1 calls $0.50, MP1 raises to $1, MP2 calls $1, Hero calls $1, CO calls $1, Button calls $1, SB calls $0.75, BB calls $0.50, UTG+1 calls $0.50.

Let's review here. Hero has Ad Kd Qc 8c -- for TWO nut flush draws (with limited straight flush potential qualifying the word "nut") AND top 2 pair. Them's a few outs. If only that 8 was a jack or a ten...

River: ($74.20) Ah (3 players, 1 all-in) Here's where short stacking kinda sucks.
SB bets $21.65 (All-In), UTG+1 calls $8.05 (All-In).

Final Pot: $103.90

SB: shows [5c 2d 5d 8s] (a straight, Ace to Five)
UTG+1: shows [7d 7c 4s 4c] (a full house, Fours full of Aces)
UTG+1 collected $51.60 from side pot
Hero: shows [Qc Ad Kd 8c] (a full house, Aces full of Kings)
Hero collected $35.70 from main pot

Why does the SB BET when the board pairs???

I love these reminders of why I took up Omaha.

Answer: People are morons.

And I didn't post it, but the guy with the straight spent the next ten minutes berating the guy with the full house for being a fish.
