    Et tu, PLO?

    Normally I avoid the tragic 2-outers of the hold-em world by playing pot-limit. However I can't get it in good enough sometimes it seems. I hit a 2-outer just to turn around and get 2-outered myself on the river.

    That type of scenario has happened to me too. My pair flops a set and the guy with Aces calls and hits a bigger set. It sucks. Sometimes they turn Aces though.

    It's always an interesting ride online...Even when you flop the nuts, there's always a good chance that you'll get runner runnered.

    Thats unfortunately why it is called flopping the nuts and not the nuts...

    i play a lot of PLO and this happens regularly. it sucks but on the same token because you can get involved in a lot more hands like this where you are pushing in way ahead in PLO , as compared to holdem, you therefore see a lot more action hands which allows the 'long run' and statistical variance to even out in a shorter period of time. it s all about BR management and playing as many hands as you can so if you do in fact play with a positive ROI, it will bear itself out.

    Thats just part of the game. You can't predict whats going to come. Shake it off and go on to the next hand.
