I don't remember if I posted this or not. I took these notes from the PLO Quickpro program KasinoKrime made. It really has a lot of good information. Don't believe me?
I was playing on Carbon at 10/25 and ran into this player and we kind of got into a cock measuring contest and challenged each other to HU. Well, we ended up skyping and apparently he took 4th in the 10K horse WCOOP a few years back but didn't manage his money too well and is now back to square one. Even Trap Stars have to grind back up from the micros! Think about it, this guy made almost a mill playing cards and now he has to play micro PLO, which he said is extremely profitable.
We've decided to join forces and break down the play at those stakes. Stay tuned for a video series......Not really but I'm sure it would make a good on. Anyways, he said that he uses the PLO Quickpro program for his PLO information and his backer does too! It won't be long before it's the #1 PLO resource on the net.
Even the regs make huge mistakes playing PLO. It's not like NL when you run into a good player you get frustrated because he or she never gives anything away. In PLO the equities run so close together and everyone is just learning it that everyone has a really good chance of being good. Johnny (KasinoKrime) told me 3 years ago that PLO is the place to be and some NL players are just now realizing that. There are some general rules that will help you with pre flop hand selection. As always position is everything and even more so in PLO. You can really get out of hand in the HJ and Button but in the SB and BB play like a super nit.
You can even run like god! I have a few examples of this. I forgot the guys name but he was the talk of that website where they track peoples earnings. I guess the story goes that this guy would deposit $500 at a time playing 50-100PLO and would bust it. About the 6th time he does this he keeps stake jumping and runs it up to a cool mill!
On a smaller scale by buddy Tyson who doesn't play much poker but hangs out with us degens deposited $50 on Bovada. Tyson is a sharp guy and does a lot of work. He is KasinoKrimes best friend so I'm sure some of that PLO wisdom has rubber off but he's never really put any type of volume in.
Anyways, he wasn't on there to grind, just have fun so he kept jumping stakes and ran $50 into $1400 playing $50, $100 and $200 PLO! If you can grind up to 100 and 200PLO and be decent you can make a nice side income. It's just so soft. Tyson also entered the weekly 100k and took 4th for $4900! Not a bad week for him.
On Carbon theres NL Omaha. Players go crazy and look for any type of draw to run it. When I grind up to about 5k I think I will make 50PLO my main level and just bum hunt 100PLO and 200PLO. I can't wait! Hopefully I will work out all my major leaks by the WSOP
Heres the link to the article I put onto my blogger account. I may have posted it before but I don't remember. It got mad props on 2+2! The notes don't do it justice. I would jump on to Quickpro. It's worth every penny and then some
