Re: Pot Limit Omaha 8 by Steve Ruddock

The point is, he never covers when you should play aggressively, and proper aggression is key in PLO8. Often strong drawing hands are going to be nice favroites over the nut made hands on the flop,...

Re: Pot Limit Omaha 8 by Steve Ruddock

I think no information is better than bad information. I think these articles were poor on the whole and will start you off as a very weak tight nut peddler. There were some decent points, but he...

Re: second set (100 PLO8b)

I misread the hell out of the OP I guess. Call it too little sleep and being sick. The funny thing is I vaguely remember making sure he wasn't in the BB before I posted. Oh well, I guess I didn't....

Re: second set (100 PLO8b)

Your hand preflop is a POS. I would fold it almost every time. You got about as good a flop as you could reasonably hope for and are still in murky water. I think against a typical opponent this...

Re: Hand 1

[ QUOTE ]
Heads up I like this play. He's going to need a 4-card hand to have you in bad shape here, and that's just not so likely. You'd rather have a 24 or 23, but heads up this is a fine play...

Re: Flopped nuts with lots of draws on the board...

This is a hand I would bet, but probably not raise with on the flop. I don't mind getting all in or seeing a fairly cheap turn where I would push really hard on a safe card, but I don't want to put...

Re: How to play these Aces? PL$200

I don't think you should have reraised when it comes to you. There are good aces hands and there are bad aces hands. You have a bad aces hand (a good one basically has a wheel card along with the...

Re: A Couple of $25 Hands

I hate to say it, but the spiteful villains at $25 know that a raise to .85 in EP spells Aces, and gives them more incentives to hit their 2-pair.

Re: A Couple of $25 Hands

A dry 2 pair is usually a slight dog on the flop to AA with a low draw. I pot it preflop and I don't care one bit if they call with J975 to hit their 2 pair and actually hit it. They are still...
