Re: AA should be easy, right? Two hands 100 6max

Hand 1 make it 45 or all in pf. As played I push flop. You will see JJ-QQ fold and AK call more often than KK I think

Re: so im starting to play poker again

Really really fishy. But as Xorbie said it is soo much different than Hold'em. I am actually a PLO player that is now learning NL since there aren't any real mid-limit Omaha games. You can play up to...

Re: Turn Play...

I would have folded the flop since there were two others behind you. You have only a pair with a gutshot and a backdoor flush draw, and it is very possible with a K on the board that someone was...

Re: should you worry about the straight flush?

This is a no brainer at 100bb 6 max. As said if you both had 200+ bb stacks it would be better to just call

Re: Am I a moron on this hand

Is betting on this type of flop a standard line for you? I would stray from bluffing too much on paired flops with a flush draw as you are usually going to get trapped far too much at this limit

Re: Omaha High tourney at Caesar\'s Palace

Bahh, I just left Vegas. Best chance for a game is probably the Wynn, there were 8 or 9 on the list for PLO last Friday but I was meeting some people and didn't have time to see if the game ever got...

Re: Deep Stacks PLO tournament 18:15 ET

I have been meaning to play this but always remember an hour after it started. I finished pretty deep in a Hold'em one and it easily took 9-10 hours

Another problem with seaking small edges is that they are very hard to judge in PLO and in fact you may be taking a series of slightly -EV shots instead. Which is the worst of all...

Re: Raise or Fold?

Given the way you played the hand a fold on the turn is in order.

Re: 3bet flop or see a turn? 25 PLO

If the board were not so draw heavy then I think a smoothcall would be in order since you have position. He would bet out on a brick turn and then you can raise, rarely in this circumstance will they...

Re: A question of bluffing in a nut-peddlers game

Against a known rock/nut peddler you can often call with weakish draws and then bet them off a hand when a different draw hits. The keys here are you should be in position and also need to know your...

Re: is omaha H/L easier than omaha High (pot limit)?

For me PLO8 is more straightfoward and less variance. Often, a terrible beat is chopping the pot due to a 2 or 4 outer instead of scooping or getting quartered instead of doing the quartering

Re: Bankroll for Party $2k PLO

I don't think there's any problem taking a shot at a higher level if you were winning at a lower level, the problem with Omaha is that there is such a big jump, so its hard to take shots at the 2k...

Re: New to this, is this an acceptable line (PLO100)

I would be wary of checking on the river, alot of times you will get someone who raises with the non nut flush on the turn and then checks behind on the river. I would probably pop it back a bit on...

Re: Pot Limit Bankroll

Stars usually has 4-5 $50 games at some times, and they are almost always good. Pokerroom also has some great .50-.50 action and Tilt's $50 games look pretty good as well

Re: Stars Deepstack PLO Tournament

Yes, it is bi-weekly I think. Check the Stars schedule but I believe they run a $20+2 at 6 once a week and a $30+3 at something like 2 or 3am EST once a week

Re: Trying to get a PLO game going at Lucky Chances?

For me $300 would be a far too small for the max buy in. The live games I have played in have always been pretty deep stacked (not live Omaha) so I think you would need at least a $400 max (100bb)...
