Untouchable face

Untouchable face - Ani Difranco

two-thirty in the morning
and my gas tank will be empty soon
neon sign on the horizon
rubbing elbows with the moon
a safe haven of sleepless
where the deep fryer's always on
radio is counting down
the top 20 country songs
and out on the porch the fly strip is
waving like a flag in the wind
y'know, i don't look forward
to seeing you again soon

you'll look like a photograph of yourself taken from far far away
and i won't know what to do
and i won't know what to say

except fuck you...

Another tricky Omaha spot

I've been playing pretty snug and winning much more consistently than NLH. What I've picked up from reading part of Hwangs book also also made a big difference. I still find myself occasionally in these spots where I have no idea where I'm at.

In this hand, I have top two but likely not the best hand. I also have an open ended draw but again, likely not the best draw. If in doubt, at the moment I just pull the ripcord....
