In Omaha Holdem, you're often in two to one land. Two to one, means you're often not ahead.
You have a one third chance every hand, to lose the hand. Now, let's look at that. Let's
look at a visual demonstration of what that means. Let's deal some flops. Here's a flop.
It's queen, seven, six. Well, at this time I have the better hand with my kings. But,
look at this. Look at this wrap around straight draw. Look at how that plays. You've got nine,
eight, which will make a straight if a five, ten comes off. You've got ten, nine, which
will make a straight if an eight comes off. You get the idea. Ok. Let's look at another
flop. I flopped a set of kings there. And, that's pretty cool. But, I'm still worried
about a gut shot straight draw. Still, if I flop a set of kings in this game I'm psyched.
Most of the time, you will not flop a set of kings. You'll flop something like this.
You're in pretty good shape here. Here's one, queen, nine, five. What goes in the middle
of a queen and a nine? A jack and a ten. Again, it's the straight draw issue. So, you notice
that you will often be behind in this game. Because this game is played on the flop. And,
played on the draws after the flop. You would rather have a drawing hand on the flop than
to flop on a set of kings. Because you can't improve. You cannot improve if you flop that
set of kings unless you get that last king. If you have this drawing hand here, you have
what we call all sort of outs to win the hand.
