Not Another Second

OK, this one was just torture. I won't bore you with the whole story, but this is like the eighth or ninth Omaha tournament I've ever played, first place $692, second $425, and this was the first (and last) hand of heads up play . . .

For those of you who might not be well versed in poker and reading hand histories, I had aces against her jacks and she flopped the nuts. I am sad. Really thought this was gonna end the year long drought without a win. It's my second runner-up finish in about 60 hours, too, both ending in bad beats.

I don't know about torture. You could consider just calling the re-raise and seeing a flop. You are only the 66% favorite here. That's great, but not a lock by any means.

Oh, I know -- certainly nothing's a "lock" in Omaha pre-flop, but it's more torture because I haven't won a tournament in a year and I've now had I think five second place finishes in the past six weeks and here I had a perfect opportunity to cripple my opponent on the first hand of heads up play and breeze to victory, so it just sucked for me. Also, look at that flop. I would have rather she spiked a jack, but nope, with AA I'm drawing almost DEAD after that flop (dead to runners for a full house). Felt like torture to me!
