    kind of blue arrived today. still haven't sent these headphones back cause I'm a lazy piece of shit, but on the plus side as long I hold them mostly in place I get both ears coming in.

    gotta send them in the next two days so when the rest of my stuff comes I can really enjoy it... and when I get money in two weeks I can maybe spend it on more equipment.

    Well Alethcar was agreeing with you, and he mentioned Baseball in his post. Thus, conclusions.

    I'm actually usually the one who teaches people how to play Omaha, in an effort to game them before they realize what hands it really takes to win it. Unfortunately, I think I'm a little too generous when explaining the rules, and over-emphasize the "it's called the 'cruel' game for a reason" aspect a little too much.

    Although I usually go back to hold 'em when my chips are low, because it's the safest way to play for me.

    Stud, I fold a ton, because I haven't figured out the betting process well enough. I've watched a fair share of hands, but I still can't really follow. Five card draw is just boring. Anyone can buy the pot off me with that one, because who cares.

    It's a four-person game that's like, 90% luck. Commonly played in Michigan, and like, a couple of other places that I can't remember. You team up with the person sitting across from you, and it's a great game for trash-talking.

    You just have to play Omaha enough. The trick is that hands like 6-7-8-K are actually worse than like 5-6, J-K, because you can only take two out of your hand, so in the first one an 8 you might want is eliminated. Same with suits -- if you have more than two of any suit, it's actually a negative. Just playing a ton and putting together little things like that really helped me determine how to bet pre-flop. For example three of a kind in your hand would be disastrous, and would probably encourage you to fold, because one of the cards you want is out.

    Then, beyond that -- if there's any flush or full house possibilities on the board, and more than two players in the hand, assume someone has it (obviously hoping it's you). Minus those possibilities, it's generally three-of-a-kinds and straights that win it. High pair is basically nothing.

    Yeah, we're on the same page.

    No hard feelings for Alethcar, either, really -- alls I'm really saying is that we're incompatible gamblers. It's good that we've established this early in our relationship.
