Glenn has been playing some Omaha lately. I haven’t been playing much poker, but I was bored the other day and said I might be up for PLO. I signed up and noticed that it was PLO8 (which I like much better, FWIW, as those who know me can affirm). I figured that it was simply a one off, but when I looked a little deeper, I saw that they were all PLO8. So I mentioned to Glenn, “Hey, this is PLO8. Do they switch tourneys every other night?” He replied, “Oh, that’s not PLO? I didn’t even know!”
This coming from the guy who won the thing.
It has always been this way with Glenn and me. I am hyper aware and pay attention to everything. He pays attention to virtually nothing and is STILL a much better player than me. All-in-all, I think we make about the same amount of money playing poker, but he doesn’t have to play much at all to win, nor work hard at it. Boy, am I glad we just play for fun and not profit!
