      Hi guys,

      I'm wondering, can anyone explain to me why I only have 22,5% EQ in this hand?


      $0.50/$1 Zoom Pot Limit Omaha Hi

      Hero (BTN) ($102) 102bb
      SB ($103.51) 104bb

      It's PLO what do you expect with one overpair and no real draw and without paired card vs so many players

      Why? Because it's Omaha. :D

      One reason is that UTG is blocking your outs for set, flush and straight. If you change his K to Q and clubs for hearts, you're on "pole position" pre-flop with 30% equity.

      Yeah it's hard for "blanks" to hit here ott and otr, and your outs are blocked as well :)

      I didn't think that against two crap hands and only one reasonable rundown it was possible to drop well below 25%
      Just because of a handful of blockers, that's pretty sick.

      Its like so difficult to be a gigantic favorite in omaha. It is a really frustrating game most of the time.

      In multiway pots, yes. In HU pots you can dominate your opponent more easily.

      And as the big hands are easy to play, your edge has to come from the other spots.
