Last Omahan standing

I've made no secret of the fact that Pot Limit Omaha is my least favorite poker flavor. Last night, in the second sit and go 8-game I played, I actually won when that was the flavor, making me the last Omahan standing :-) I knew this had to have been a rare occurrence, so I did some digging to find out how rare. Here are the numbers: out of 65 sit and go 8-game tournaments, I've won 17; of those 17, the flavor of the final hand has been Pot Limit Omaha exactly once.

The way I won was instructive; my opponent was betting heavily every hand, and I was folding. Finally, I got a premium hand, got into a raising war with him, got him all in, and crushed his pair of deuces with my three of a kind, queens.
