Fold pre. You can do that in this game. The turn call was not pretty at all.

Sucks he hit but Pot on the flop and potting the turn is the best play here. You need to charge him, not give him a chance to catch up.

Thanks for the input, pretty much got the same comments on two plus two.......unfortunately I don't have the stomach for deeper stacks:

I know I had no business even playing this pot to a preflop raise, but it still pisses me off!

not sure if anyone cares, but here are responses from two plus two:

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/44/omaha-8/bleeding-death-10-25-pl-omaha-hilo-360504/

http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/44/omaha-8/02-05-pl-micro-stakes-exclusive-361327/

I posted both, but the second link is the one that inspired me to post these. IMO it has an excellent street by street analysis of the .02/.05 hand.
