I play a lil 6-8 handed game 6 days a week. Many calling stations, so tough to bluff. I really need to master the math.

Jeff hwang first book . " big play staretdgy " is the best book for starting plo that I have seen.

There are some crappy books out there as well...will iam jokush has some thoughts in his book that are donkiesh.

You have to read some quality books to understand how to think and play omaha.

Jeffs second book is excellenty but 700 pages !  the first book is enough to get ya going good:}

 Last night, I saw some weird shit. I have Ad 6d and 2 other cards. Flop comes 9d 10s Qd. It's a .25/.5o game. Betting went 2, raise to $5 to me. I call. Original bettor raises 25. Guy who bet 5 tanks and shows guy to the left. $25 bettor guy erupts. Guy folds and I fold. Guy folded had the NUTS, but said, "I didn't like it". WTF

On a side note: it's a friendly game and guys show each other cards all the time. Every now and then, someone gets upset though. Maybe a rule should be made.

I deal a 2/5 hold'em game 3 times a week, but saturdays is omaha rotating between high and 8. It's literally a donk fest. I've noticed that people who are normally semi-solid holdem players can be HORRIBLE in omaha. They all play too many hands. Its a 10 handed game and avgs 6 to the flop at least. I swear it plays like a .25/.50 game on the internet, but there is easily 15k+ on the table at any time...its ridiculous really, all they do is pass money back and forth while paying rake


wow im really stoned this is by far the longest mindless rant i've ever written on a forum hahahahaha

A bare nut straight is not much of a hand in omaha... especially with a flush draw out.

There is a 60% chance the board will eiother pair and or put up a flush card.

correct playt usually is to check fold with any bet and raise on flop with just a nu8t straight on many boards.
