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

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

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies oakland athletics jersers have stepped up their detroit tigers jersers managerial search.
On Wednesday, sources said the Phillies are interviewing three internal candidates this week.
Juan atlanta braves jersers Samuel interviewed Tuesday, Jorge Velandia interviewed Wednesday and Dusty Wathan will interview before the weekend.
The Phillies are baltimore orioles jersers expected to begin meeting with external candidates next week.
Samuel, 56, has been a Phillies coach since 2011, including serving as third-base coach minnesota twins jersers since '16.
He is highly regarded and served as interim manager of the Orioles for 51 games in 2010.wholesale baseball jersers
Velandia, 42, is a special assistant to Phillies general manager Matt Klentak.
He fits the mold of the young, energetic, analytically-inclined candidate the Phillies seem to be seeking.
Wathan, 44, is the Triple-A new york mets jersers Lehigh atlanta braves jersers Valley manager.
He is a rising star based on how he has kansas city royals jersers developed most of the team's talented young players and prospects.
It is unclear if the Phillies have finalized their list of external candidates, but names like former pittsburgh pirates jersers Tigers manager Brad Ausmus, Red Sox bench coach Gary DiScarcina, Astros bench cincinnati reds jersers coach Alex Cora, former Mariners bench coach Tim Bogar, former catcher David Ross and White Sox bench coach Joe McEwing miami marlins jersers have been discussed.
Certainly there are many others.
Orioles manager Buck Showalter remains the biggest name connected to the Phillies' arizona diamondbacks jersers managerial opening because of his history with Phillies president Andy MacPhail and Klentak, but sources said there is no chance of Showalter coming to Philadelphia.
Showalter is under contract through 2018, and there is no hope Orioles owner Peter Angelos will let him out of his deal.
Former Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
and former bench coach Larry Bowa also are not candidates.
While Amaro is regarded as a managerial candidate, he doesn't make sense pittsburgh pirates jersers for the Phillies.
Bowa is expected to remain in the organization, but not as a member of the big league coaching staff.
The Phillies have had no shortage of suitors since they announced on the final weekend of the season that former manager Pete Mackanin has been reassigned to a front-office role.
Most in the industry see the Phillies as an organization on the rise with talented, up-and-coming players on the big league roster, a deep farm system and an owner that is ready to spend millions to fill the holes they cannot fill internally.
MacPhail said last week that he hopes the Phillies find their manager before the GM meetings, which begin Nov.
13.But it is not out of the question the Phillies can find their man before the end of the month.
Todd Zolecki has covered the Phillies since 2003, and for MLB.com since 2009.
