Nice to see you back at 4 card PLO!

At 29:50 you folded AT76ss from EP. Was there a specific reason for that?

This was truly amazing series, thank you! Really opened my eyes!

For future I think a few videos reviewing members footage would be nice.

Also a mini series where you show how you study and do a post session hand review and analysis would be very interesting.

Not blocking any pair and not holding A of clubs, I think this is a check in GTO. If the board was rainbow, potting is probably good. Your hand has poor playability on many turns. Potting and taking the pot down right a way does not feel wrong though.

Here is a really good video made by JohnnyUtah

Emty Great video! I have been looking for PLO 50 or equivalent rake structure preflop Monker solution. May I ask, where you got it or did you run it yourself? Thanks!

Great content for Essential plan!

PPT x% ranges are not optimal as they are based on raw equity and not take account for playability. I suggest you take a look at Pokerjuice preflop ranges: https://pokerjuice.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/categories/200116138-PokerJuice-Preflop-Ranges

They can be imported to PPT

I tend to flat here too, which might be a small mistake. I would 3-bet with more connected like AK89ds for sure.

Post | He-Lord posted in PLO: PLOCalc vs PokerJuice

I am looking for a more advanced equity tool for low stakes PLO hand analysis.

Didn't find much reviews on PLOCalc and I am wondering if one has some advantages over another.

Cost is about the same PJ 249€/year and PLOCalc 300$/lifetime.

Any info would be appreciated. Thanks!

If you have a solid preflop strategy covered, I highly recommend Flop Strategy part 1 & 2 by Leszek Badurowicz.

I am playing PLO50 at the moment and decided to step up my game, so I upgraded to Elite for a month. ;) Trying to watch 2 videos a day while making notes.

What series/coaches do you guys recommend? I am trying to learn more about the core theory of the game so I started watching Tom Chamber's series.

Have you played regular tables PLO10 & PLO25 at PS? Can't really hope softer games than that. iPoker and MPN you get better rewards, but games are much nittier. Unibet has probably the best games, but not much action.

Post | He-Lord posted in PLO: PLO 20€/25$ 2016


I haven't played in almost an year. What do you guys think what's the place to play PLO25 now?

I started to play at MPN due to lowered rake and 50% + returns, but the software is killing me. Tables and cards are too small. Also there is no action in european morning hours.

So I guess I have to choose between iPoker and Stars.

Which one do you recommend? Thanks!

Post | He-Lord posted in PLO: PLO Zoom & hotkeys

I've developed some neck & shoulder problems after I started to play zoom. I use a standard mouse.

I tried PS hotkeys, but didn't manage to make a layout that would work for me. Anybody using PS hotkeys could you share your layout?

Thoughts on using Magic Trackpad for poker?

Watch em all!

Yeah, wondering the same thing???

Comment | He-Lord commented on Line check 10PLO

Preflop open size seems too small for HJ open. You are giving good price to ragged suited A high hands etc. to call, which may have folded to a bigger open.

Other than that, I'd play the same if I think villain is not going to bet on the turn.


April 21, 2014 | 4:23 p.m.

Good stuff! More Zoom, please! Yes, do a series covering different stakes.

March 29, 2014 | 1:57 p.m.

I played also LHE and switched to PLO a month ago. So, I'll look forward your blog!

I also prefer stars in every aspect, but the psychological pressure to put volume seems to hurt my learning. So I'll try playing iPoker 10PLO-20PLO and Ongame 15PLO - 25PLO 2-3 tabling for a while and move back to stars when I have some multitabling skills. 

Of course I move back earlier if those crappy softwares brakes my mind.

Post | He-Lord posted in PLO: New to PLO - Site selection

My first post here. Not sure if I should have posted this here or to General poker.

Firstly, wow what an amazing site and what an amazing community! Unbelievable value and so easy to use site!

I've been on hiatus from online poker for a couple of years. I used to play LHE at levels 1/2 to 3/6. Now I started again and sadly found out LHE is pretty much dead. I tried LO8 but I think I'll put my effort to learn PLO as there is much more action.

I watched a dozen of RIO videos and read lots of strategy and hand history posts etc and decided I was ready for some Pokerstars PLO10 action. I try to play 2 hours per day and use at least the same amount of time to learning (videos, revieving hand histories, PPT etc.) 

So far I've played around 6K hands, about 60% zoom and 40% regular tables. I've started to look some stats and it seems that I am paying around 19bb/100 in rake. And of course after reading all the horror stories about the micros being unbeatable I started worrying.

With my current volume I'll reach Gold VIP level at stars. I calculated that if I use my FPPs to giftcards, I'll get around 30 % rakeback.

I have 60% flat deals at iPoker and Ongame, but their rake at PLO10 is absurd 6.67%. So I guess Stars is preferred choice at PLO10

But how about at levels beyond PLO10? Does anybody have data about rake bb/100 at Pokerstars 25$ vs iPoker 20€?

I don't believe that the micros are unbeatable, I just like to make every move to get my win rate as high as possible.
