On Omaha

I'm really getting into PLO, watched alot of LFTV videos I had from my old pokersavvy days, and I think his videos on the fundamentals are great. Also watching Pregaming by MajicNinja has opened my eyes to a number of things - 1, if you play better than most players postflop, you should play more hands preflop, because preflop equitys run so close together, you should be putting yourself in situations postflop where you skill advantage can shine. 2 - PLO is a complex game, but its relatively simple in the sense that you still only need a better hand than your opponent (both in equity and actual terms) when you go get to showdown, just like in Holdem. 3 - you win more by making people fold in PLO than in NL, therefore aggression is way more important, and as a consequence position is more important than in NL too.

I've come to realise that while playing super tight preflop is definately profitable in PLO, it is also getting me frustrated in the sense that although I have the best hand when we get it in, and my opponents know that they're likely up against a better hand when they play a pot vs me, they can play relatively easily against me, because all they have to do is picture top range for me, then decide how good their hand is against my top range and gambol knowing when they're behind they still have 40% equity and the rest of the time they're likely to get a fold out of me.. which possibly means they are actually winning overall, considering how much dead money they can collect.

I'm sticking with PLO for all of JULY and hereby announce july 2010 as JOOORHT's PLO MASSACRE MONTH - im gunning for 150hours of play at 50PLO 6max for around 50k hands of win

Cool blog, I'm in a similar situation to you just coming over from NLHE.

+1 about nits being easier to play against because more well defined ranges.

Oh also I def recommend lefty's vids if you have cardrunners membership. Some say he's too straightforward but there's pretty much no better content to build a solid gameplan off.

I recommend his series Two heads better than one and pwning the midstakes to start with

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do think that you need to write more about this issue, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people do not speak about these issues. To the next! All the best!! gta 5 cheats online
