  • PLO improve skill??

    I started to play Pot Limit Omaha ( PLO ) cash game a week ago because i wanted to earn FPP n VPP for the PSO open league. I started with min buy-in 0.80 coz i m really new to PLO. In my surprise, PLO is really a fun game, so i started to grind for few day n started to making profit more than i made at NL .01/.02 as well as the FPP.

    So i continue my routine n play around 2k hand per day with 4table at a time sometimes 6table, here came the interesting part, since i played PLO i think i also improve my skill on NL Holdem, I feel like PLO teach me patience, pot control, variance, and etc.

    So my question is, "Did anybody feel the same way? or its just that i run good at the moment?"

    Hope to hear from y'all, pls share your experience...

    Yeah, tell me how you're doing in a couple of days. Every time I tried a new game or new stakes I thought the same thing. Then it hit me in the face. In my opinion this is more than variance, but let's leave it to that.

    Really, keep us posted on what happens after 50k hands. Good luck!

        Just wait until you come across the shove monkeys who will raise, raise, raise, and never lose. These guys win every hand.

          I have come across those already, and it is very true indeed. They raise and reraise preflop with absolutely nothing, but somehow on the turn or the river they hold the nuts.

          Anyway, first and foremost, PLO has shown me what a limited and boring game NL Hold'em really is.

          Well, It's not really boring and limited, but compared to PLO, it is.

            I have to agree with you, when I could play here I made more profit playing PLO than I did at NLH 6 max tables. Not sure why that was. Keep up the grinding and beef up your BR umbup:

              Trust me, no doubt ive seen these player on the table ton of time... there's always a way to play these guys, coz its LIMIT omaha, fold post flop if miss, if hit, then let them hang their self.. haha

                the reason ur finding it easier to win at PLO than at hold em is because in PLO, there are so many draws out there that whole stacks are going in the middle more often on the flop and the turn. there's a lot higher degree of variance, and if ur constantly getting it in with the best of it, you will be winning more...but if ur having an unlucky day u could potentially lose a lot more as well. it is a draw heavy game with little bluffing, and preflop play is not nearly as important as it is in hold em.

                  after a long session of PLO, it isn't nearly as much fun to play holdem. i keep waiting to see four cards draw, but they never do....duuuhhhhhh lol anyway, PLO is more fun b/c it is more of a gambling game than holdem. rarely are u more than a 2 to 1 favorite over any hand post flop in PLO, so the money tends to go in a lot more often. in holdem, whats the best u can see? a bare top set vs. nut flush/open ended or double gutter straight draw? in omaha u can have 2 flush draws and 6 ways to make a straight, all in the same hand...a bare set gets burned

                      The much hands you make is depended of your concentation at a session.
                      When there is no concentration and motivation in your game, you better stop the session.
                      When you feel good after a session, you made enough hands, for the next session.
                      Know that you have a lot of years to improve your game over and over.

                      It is not a question to make as much as possible hands as quick as possible.
                      It´s the learning process fromout motivation and concentration in your game, that improves your game. Watch back intersting hands you have just play regularly.
