I just want to echo all the thanks to Iggy and Felicia for organizing the WPBT H.O.R.S.E. tourney. It was a lot of fun, especially for someone like me who's not a NL specialist.
I thought that I would have an edge in the Stud portions of the tourney, since so many bloggers had posted about not even knowing how to play Stud-8 and such. Sure enough, I seemed to do best in the Stud games, and lost the most money in Hold'em. This was so apparent that I started to worry whether I was subconciously not playing my best Hold'em game, but I think there really were just a lot of very good Hold'em players giving away a lot of chips in Razz and Stud-8. In Omaha, I just folded a lot, as that is definitely my weakest game.
I finished 5 or 6 places shy of a cash, but I made my buy-in plus $10 or so back playing low-limit Razz after I busted out. Fun game. I seem to have developed a new fascination with lowball games, fueled in part by how badly so many people play them. I'm gonna have to deposit in UltimateBet and try online Triple Draw. I am still really busy with work though so no online poker for me this week.
