A bit of fun

I'm planning to play a PLO tournament at the local casino tonight for a bit of fun. It's a R&A tournament, and my plan at this stage is not to rebuy but to take the addon if it seems sensible at the time. If I bust early, I will look to play some holdem cash.

I "warmed up" for this last night by turning $40 into $140 on two PLO tables, so that theoretically covers my buyin. These PLO tournaments are generally full of terrible players, so even though I don't really know PLO well I rate myself a modest chance of a good result.

Edit: Looks like the PLO is off for tonight. My partner in crime, aka "SidekickBoy" can't make it. It's probably not a bad thing, since I'm not willing to invest the 5-6 buyins that it takes for a serious tilt at an R&A tournament.

Good luck tonight. Omaha is a lot of coin flips, so aggression can pay.

Be careful of raising with AA preflop as sometimes you are playing with your hand face up. 9TJQss on the other hand, re-pot.

As with all games, the starting hands are the foundation and The Hutchison system is a good basis

Go get 'em.

PS I won our local RSL NLH Tourney last night, woo hoo!

See the edit on the post: Didn't end up going, after my friend pulled out. We'll probably go down to play cash next week instead.
