I cannot let the great game of Pot Limit Omaha be neglected anymore here in the YouTube poker world. Inspired by the mass amount of No Limit hands being shown off here on YouTube I have decided to show everyone about the glorious game known as PLO.
In this infamous PLO hand Patrik Antonius and Andrew Robl get all in for a $260,000 pot and run it 4 times. Many people have called this play by Andrew Robl completely terrible but how terrible was it??

Hey good shit . PS do u think ACR is fixed ? When ever i play 10. 25 cent and 50 cent 1 dollar im successful and run my bank roll up from $130 to $1500 in one night often but 9 times out ill get bored and put a 3rd or even half my bank roll i to a room and every single time i will flop 3 if s kind and get felted the guy will either hit a straight or a flush it happends every single time i did an experiment and even predicated the out cone was delt AA K 7 flops A 8 9 im like let me guess the guy has a striaght draw the guy pots i re pot and he shoves 2000 on a straight draw and rivers it
It looks extreme in a big tv pot and running it 4 times. But catching runner runner straight flush cards vs a made hand(quads or boat) in nl he is very much more unlikely to happen and most experienced regs have had that happen to them at least once online. Almost ten times less likely a scenario than this. I think that has happened even in wsop main at least once.
hey joe i am a nlh player and when i am trying to understand plo spots i have a tough time to see what a BALANCED RANGE looks like, i mean in this case robl should have in his range some bluffs when he gets all in or not? if yes what type of hands can he use as a bluff. i mean what is tough in plo is where do you draw the line between semibluffing and bluffing, like you can have a hand with 31% equity like robl has, is that enough for using it as a semibluff or he needs 40% or maybe 45%, but then when equity gets between 40-50 you can also call, so this is so hard to draw a line between those equities.
what's the chance of less than 1% situations happen all the time? i guess is far less than 1%, close to 0 still it may happen to you. you have to be 100% sure the game is not rigged to play it, even the smalest chance like less than 1% is not affordable. cause one thing is losing an amount of money, other is "working" hours and hours of your short poor life to turn it into rake... no no no i got you...
I also asked Robl about Patrick's needling "good re-re raise" and he said yes he knew what Patrick meant and wasn't insulted.
Not trying to troll. Just wanted to share because I never thought I'd stumble upon a breakdown video of this hand (because it's such a bad play IMO! What's to break down!).
I don't care if the reader here believes me or not (and understand there are plenty of trolls on the web): I went up to and spoke to Andrew Robl personally about this hand in Vegas during the WSOP 2010 in the Rio on a player break after introducing myself because I saw this video on the web and didn't understand why a pro would make this play.
I asked him about his decision to shove in this hand. He remembered the hand and the shove and said he did it because he was tilting, was looking to double up: plain and simple. He knew it was a terrible play and admitted it.
He autographed a playing card for me and then left after talking to me for about two minutes. Nice individual.
since you said its a famous hand and they ran it 4 times, I thought they might run out of cards. I didnt check how many players were playing, but I thought maybe 9
52 cards in deck
So 9 players 9x4= 36
flop = 3
turn = 4
burn cards= 9 (1+4+4)
= 56 cards.
If they were with 9 players they would come 4 cards short haha I thought it was interesting enough to mention
There was less than a 1% chance that Robl would get all 4 pots if my calculations are correct.
Total number of possible outcomes = 41*40 = 1640
Outcomes that Robl wins = 516 (if I have calculated correctly)
Roble wins all 4 = 516/1640 * 515/1639 * 514/1638 * 513/1637 ~ 0.97%
The corner screen with your face on it should disappear when you're not talking, other than that good stuff. Lot of people out there don't know the spots that regularly come up in PLO, so there's a definite need for that content. I think the average player needs to feel more knowledgeable and/or comfortable about PLO before they go sit in a game n gamble with regs.. Id love to see more players brought to the game. Keep it up Pops!
Good for you Joe...promoting the great game! :) One of my biggest lost pots of all time to date was a 'running it 1 time' pot where opponent was all in on flop with .24% equity (1 quarter of a percent haha). Me QhQcJd10d...all in after flop of Qs8d9d...opponent flips over Qd9h8h6c for .24% equity.......turn 9...river 9! haha...never forget it! Love this game! And this hand has always been an entertaining favorite!
