Default IMPORTANT Lesson in Omaha 8s or better

So I just got done playing acouple $2 sngs,which by the way I got a 1st and 2 2nds, but I had a hand in one of the Omaha 8s or better sng that is worth noting because it shows an important concept especially if you are new to 8s or better. Unforturnatly I wasnt paying that much attention to this sng at the time and played this hand horribly, try not to laugh at me to much .

Full Tilt Poker Game #1588530197: $2 + $0.25 Sit & Go (11552655), Table 1 - 150/300 - Limit Omaha Hi/Lo - 0:02:47 ET - 2007/01/13

Acorn84 wins the high side pot (765) with four of a kind, Sevens
roostnu wins the low side pot (765) with 7,4,3,2,A
Acorn84 wins the high main pot (533) with four of a kind, Sevens
roostnu wins the low main pot (532) with 7,4,3,2,A
MISSY HERE stands up

The first mistake I made was not raising on the turn to get more cash in there but it wasnt has bad because I pretty much had the nuts since I had the A2 and was going to pop it on the turn if he bet out, the problem was on the turn when the 2 came off. I made a huge mistake checking because now i had no low draw and gave the guy a free shot at half the pot, which unfortunatly he won.

This is the central concept of omaha 8s or better, your goal is to scoop pots. When you have a made high hand it is very hard to slow play because you have to make sure no low hand is possible. What i should have done is bet out on the turn when the 2 came, even if i wanted to slow play my hand because i could not give him a free look at the river.

If you only learn one thing about 8 or better i hope its this concept
"I can read you faster than I read books"

Default I do the same!

I know what you're talking about here, I do the same thing.

My one main strategy in any Hi/lo game is to play for the lo pot.
You can always catch a high hand anyhow.
Unless, of course, you roll-up, which is always a disaster for me, as I always lose.
