Omaha=community service

Unfortunately Omaha eight or better is making a bit of a comeback. Kind of like stud I was hoping they would all die off eventually. Today is no different, a mid limit Omaha 8 games starts out with the first hand being a split between the 1 and 2 seat. The 2 seat tosses me a buck and it lands in front of the one seat who promptly spills some chips next to my dollar, as I go to grab it, he says you can have that. I said “oh that was my tip from that guy”. And I think to myself thank you for tipping me my own dollar, as he stacks up his chips of course he doesn’t tip. I’m thinking hmmm I wonder if maybe he thought he tipped me. We continue on with our tables average age of 65+, the one seat raises the river on a 4club board with only an ace of clubs and proudly says “flush”. I try not to be a smart ass because these guys are hanging on by a thread as it is. I said “sir you must use 2 cards in your hand” and of course he lucks out on the low with a live ace for low. The play is fairly slow as usual and along comes a 4JJ48 board, our one seat raises the river again, and shows 67AA and declares 67 low, the winner had 8’s full. WTF, I again politely explain three low cards on the board must not be paired. He continues on and backs into 2 scooped winners and of course doesn’t tip, but if someone throws me a dollar I’m sure he will tell me I can have it. At this point I feel like I’m volunteering at the nursing home trying to deal the game there. “I’m sure your children are coming to visit this weekend Mr. Robinson”, “please don’t eat the button Mrs. Johnson” . So if I ever get sentenced to community service I put in a few hours every week, maybe the judge will buy it.
