HoldEm Or Omaha?Friday, January 14, 2011 Mary Anne Velasco
Earlier, I've written about my early poker experience. What I haven't told you yet is that I've won first place during a family poker on Christmas eve '10. Nah. We haven't played with real cash but I must say that winning feels absolutely awesome. I usually end up in last place but that night has just been my night. Just perfect!
After that, there hasn't been any family poker game days so far. It's a relief to know that there are online poker rooms to go to when I feel like playing it, a good way for me to prepare myself for the next match!
Oh by the way, it's Texas HoldEm I play. I've come across Omaha just lately. According to surveys, HoldEm and Omaha are the two top poker games [http://www.pokerjunkie.com/poker-games.html] as of today. Out of curiosity, I've tried Omaha a few times online and have been frustrated everytime I play it. It's too confusing for me. With four cards face down in the start of each round, I get lost most of the time. I guess Omaha isn't for me, yet. I am not giving up though. Will still keep on trying until I finally get familiar with its entire concept. Wish me luck!
