A Welcome Victory

Dunno really what change it will or has to my attitude yet im totally and utterly drained after 48 minutes HU omaha.

Game was $100 32 players interpoker platinum club exclusive game so some top players in it, payout was $1880 (im probably about even for the month now). I had some awful luck early in 2 pots and was left on 25% starting stack. Fortunately i got the reverse luck to get back in and seemed to pick the right spots at the final table to make it HU.

23k vs 40k to start so i was prepared to gamble even though blinds were only 150/300. 4 hands in and opportunity came, see below:

Game #6210664684: Plat $1.5K added PLO (ID5795971) $100+$0 - Omaha PL (150/300) - 2007/11/08 - 21:08:26 (UK)

Returned uncalled bets 10,800 to animalgod
----- SHOW DOWN -----
animalgod: shows [7c Ah Ad Tc] (A Straight, Ace high)
animalgod collected 15650 from Main pot

Would luv to know what he held, obviously the lower flush or a good set but knowing he didnt have the nut flush i decided to play it strong and gamble. That pot really won me the HU as i chipped away after that and was in 35-40k region for ages before the blinds went up and i won a few pots in a row to hold 53k vs 10k before i won the first preflopper we had.

Like i say not gonna go over the top about this win its only 18xbuyin but it could be the change of course i needed in my head and at the this space !!!
