    The wheel as many people know is a2345 which in omaha high low is the nuts for the low end of the pot and is a decent straight for the high end.

    In holdem however it is just a straight. True it will often be the best hand but it is hardly worth chasing for to any great extent yet twice within the last two days i have faced opponents who have chased belly buster wheels grossly against the odds. In one case i had top pair and a low kicker so folded after 1 guy went all in (mid pair good kicker for 175% of the flop ) to get a called all in by someone with a bellybuster (one number out wheel) they actually caught and won

    against me someone called half there chips against me with a belly buster - and we checked to the river after my bet on the flop - WHY?

    I am not complaining but whilst i can see people chasing to royal flushes (sexy) chasing agaisnt odds to wheels seems crazy
