I went up to Blackhawk Colorado this weekend. I lost about $200, but I didn't think it was so bad. I went to the Golden Gates Casino. I like the Casino and the card room is decent. I started playing on the 2/5 Limit tables and signed up for a 5/5 Omaha Hi/Lo Limit game. I played well on the 2/5 and was up about 30 after playing for about 45 minutes, but then the Omaha table started.

I didn't realize how difficult it was, I never played omaha live before and I wasn't use it to. It was a table of older folks and they like action. I guess they knew what they were doing, but I was lost. Playing online when the cards are always up, I had to look back and figure out what I had. I knew by playing tight, I could last a while, which I did. The table was down to about 6 people because these folks kept on leaving which made me mad, because I knew the only way to win playing really tight was to have many people on the table. So I left after they didn't remove those people's chips.

It's a common practice (I hope) when people leave the table for a long time, to remove their chips. It slows up the game.

I left that game about $50 dollars down and move over to the Lodge Casino. I found a 2/5 game that I though would be fun, but eventually I was down $200 for the day. I was very frustrated, but patient, but I didn't get any cards all the time I was at the Lodge. I swear I didn't get any thing above a AQs all night. My two best hands all night were a AQs, which I continuation bet with nothing on the flop to win and a pair of 4's in the BB that hit quads on the flop, but nobody picked up anything. I don't expect to pick up many cards, but a set or a flush draw would have been nice.

I'm also down online a few dollars. I don't know if I'm not patience or I'm expecting bigger cards.
