Archive for Pot Limit Omaha

I’m currently working on teaching myself Pot Limit Omaha online, multi-tabling the $1-2 stakes. Since I’m also working on increasing the number of tables I play at once (up to 20), I have also taken to “short-stacking” the games, which makes my decisions easier.  That’s not to say they are easy, by any means. PLO is an extraordinarily complex game, as the following hand I played recently illustrates:

Inducing River Bluffs — Pot Limit Omaha

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Inducing River Bluffs — Pot Limit Omaha

Sometimes the best way to win a big pot from your opponent when you know you have the best hand is to check to him in the hope that he will bet, rather than bet the hand yourself.  This is definitely the case when you have reached the river and you put your opponent on a busted draw.  Since he doesn’t have a hand to call your river bet, your best play is to check to him, and hope your display of weakness induces him to bluff.  I played a hand online today in $1-2 PLO that illustrates this concept.

Beware the Freeroll! — Pot Limit Omaha

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Beware the Freeroll! — Pot Limit Omaha

I’m currently playing a little $1-2 Pot Limit Omaha online.  It’s a little smaller than I like to play (although it’s much bigger than $1-2 NLH, because of how frequently you get all-in in Omaha), but it’s a perfect level for me to splash around in as I learn the nuances of the game, and still manage a decent win rate.

Here’s a fun hand from the session I played online yesterday, that illustrates the danger of giving your opponent a freeroll for big money in PLO:     Read More→
