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
PokerStars
6 Players

Stacks:
UTG (\$400.02) 400bb
UTG+1 (\$587.99) 588bb
CO (\$179.72) 180bb
Hero (BTN) (\$102) 102bb
SB (\$103.51) 104bb
BB (\$95.89) 96bb

Pre-Flop: (\$1.50, 6 players) Hero is BTN
UTG raises to \$3.50, 1 fold, CO calls \$3.50, Hero calls \$3.50, SB raises to \$18.50, 1 fold, UTG calls \$15, CO calls \$15, Hero raises to \$93.50, SB goes all-in \$103.51, UTG calls \$85.01, CO calls \$85.01, Hero goes all-in \$8.50

Flop: (\$413.53, 4 players, 2 all-in)
UTG checks, CO goes all-in \$76.21, UTG calls \$76.21

Turn: (\$565.95, 4 players, 3 all-in)

River: (\$565.95, 4 players, 3 all-in)

Final Pot: \$565.95
Hero shows

SB shows

UTG shows three of a kind, Deuces

CO shows

UTG wins \$563.15 (net +\$383.43)

Hero lost \$102
SB lost \$103.51
CO lost \$179.72

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.

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.
