Tell me how he didn't pump it up on this one. Who could refrain?

However, now that I think about it a bit more, the real question might be why I let the flop slide. I was slow-playing. Silly me.

I was so utterly impressed, I complimented him. Unfortunately, I don't think he understood English.

Disciplined or weak-tight and missing alot of value bets? :)

Don't know why he didn't bet more but, I guess, my question is why didn't you bet more on the end? I imagine he would have called pretty much whatever you bet, right? Did you not think he had quads? Just asking, I hate betting minimum amounts and then I see their hand and know that they probably would have called anything...You seem to be doing quite well at PL Omaha. Keep up the good work!

So much value was missed on this hand. It's rather tragic. And then to have sucked out on the river...

I considered that he might have quads, just because this is Omaha. Yet, with the small reraising, I figured more likely pocket Queens or some such thing, which, now that I think about it, doesn't make much sense.

I had never been in a hand where it was quads vs quads, either in HE or Omaha.
