The guy with aces whined for 20 minutes after this, up until the point where he was eliminated. The player with trip 10's had a few choice words from the rail too. Personally I thought it was great hand to play against a player I suspected of having aces. There's a flush out there I know but I figured I was going to be getting 3 to 1 on my money and it was worth a gamble.
Donk play or standard?
When I ran the odds afterwords, I was only a slight dog on the flop, 48 to 42. Aces were a huge dog obviously.
I think this is pretty terrible...not as bad as the guy with AA played it, but bad enough.
You're odds are right if you KNOW nobody's got a flush draw...which I would always assume based on the action.
So you've got 9 outs to your wrap, which more than matches the price laid by the pot. Figure in the redraw outs to a full house and a flush, and you don't.
But that's OK. Keep figuring nobody ever has it. I'm not even sure why you asked about the hand if you're convinced you played it fine.
Hmmmm...it's not pretty but I'm not sure as bad as others think. DaBears hand may as well be turned up; particularly in a $5 PLO donkfest. The other dude is clearly calling after he leads at pot. Have to assume that his hand is at least a set and/or a combo draw that is at least as strong as yours. I would be much more comfortable with your hand obviously if you have a flush draw to go along with the wrap.
Generally, however, getting all your chips int he middle at 15/30 with no backup draws is pretty spewtastic.
You could have done better here by not playing 9765 at all; when coming in with this type of rundown, you don't want to have the gap be at the top of the sequence. I'd much rather play 9874, though it's a double gap, because it's on the bottom of this rundown.
On this flop, when all the money goes in, do you really believe you're getting the right price, based on what the opponents are likely to have for the way they're playing? A thirteen-way wrap, with two other players, and you having no diamond draw, can come to no good at all in general. The only reason you have any equity to speak of in this pot is because neither of the other players had the flush draw. Give either that much, and you're toasted.
Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it.
FWIW, here is my reasoning. In this tournament you only start with 1500 in chips so you can't wait around for the perfect situation to get your money in. Limp in a few times raise a couple of pots or call a couple of raises, miss the flop and and you start to get short. So many times i have raised up hands like double suited aces with broadway undercards, or a hand like KQJT, completely missed the flop and had to toss them. The idea situation obviously would be to flop the nuts and have a draw to an even better hand but that doesn't happen a lot.
When dabears raised it up before the flop I'm reasonably sure he has aces. The hand I had is the type i want to have when I think someone has aces or kings or broadways. It's not perfect but it is good enough to suck out a hand like that and it's easy to toss if I miss. I know from experience in these low buy ins that many players will raise their aces even when they are not suited or only one is and their undercards are crappy. Some players will raise with 3 aces. I am considering all this when I call. As far as i'm concerned, aces suck ass is Omaha and are commonly overplayed. I'm guilty of this too at times.
When the flop comes with 2 diamonds I know there is only 8 outs max to the flush because I have one. I also know that when player one pots it he doesn't have to have a huge hand or draw to do this, but I'm not dismissing it either. It's possible he made the nuts or any set, but possibly even 2 pair or something like KK with or with out the 2nd nut flush draw or worse. Player 2 shoves all in so he either likes the flop too or thinks his aces are still good. Basically there is a couple of cases where I am going to be in really bad shape but still almost getting the right price and quite a few where I am getting more than the right odds to call. I don't like a set with a flush draw, unless both players are drawing to it. A flush draw with the straight draw to go with it sucks too but again from past experience I know neither player has to be that strong to do what they did so I was willing to gamble.
One last word. I just sucked out of a $33 buyin on the bubble. I have middle pair and a wrap my opponent has top pair; jacks, and pocket 7's and a 2, no flush or straight draw and bets this terribly weak hand when we are playing 5 way. That hand isn't worth seeing a flop with let alone taking a stab at the pot but this is a donk god. Anyways i shove what's left of my chips. All I need is another pair, nevermind the straight draw and i got him but I miss and jj with 7 kicker holds up.
That's why I made the call i did in the other game, knowing that a lot of the times this is what you are facing.
