The BB and I had to be in the hand on the flop. What was MP2's excuse?
My roll is now back to even, thanks in part to this hand. I've tightened my range a bit, maybe knocking off anywhere from 2-4% of my hands played, and it seems to have done the trick. I'm also folding two pair in a jamfest and not drawing at OES unless I already hold the top end with something else to go with it. I can't say that I want to leave the PLO verion of The Deuce quite yet, simply because there are plenty of players who will make the mistakes I am leaving behind me. I'll wait until I have another five buy-ins at the dime table and reassess.
