I played around 200k hands of PLO now and I think I improved my game a lot. I still struggle to find the right approach to studying. If I review my hands it feels like I am not really learning much as I lack an objective perspective on the hand.
What to you guys suggest is the best way to study PLO?

Dont turn your points into cash just to have a larger number in your cashier, that makes no sense at all! Your points are basically money, but if u convert them at a lower rate when u dont necessarily have to u are giving away free money. Unless u cant buy into the tables anymore u should leave them where they are at.
Actually it is hard to make a living if u are not sufficiently rolled cause it will likely destroy u mentally unless u are some kind of emotionless robot human thing (which u might be but most of us arent).
I dont know ur situation or surroundings but I think the best way would actually be looking for a part time job to cover most if not all of ur vital living expenses and grind out the rest of the week till u are stable regarding ur roll.
The other way is to just burn the ships and go manmode, do whatever it takes to get there and become a champion!

I can give you detailed information about how I do it which might be helpful to you. But first I have to ask you a few questions:
What are you doing after 9:30?
What are your goals towards Poker?
Are you willing to do "whatever it takes" to reach those goals?

Regarding preflop I am not happy with a call here, the reason is ur hand does not do very well in multiway pots if someone behind you comes along for the ride or squeezes. I would rather 3bet or fold (fold might be on the tighter side)
On the river this is a clear call in my opinion if I have no read on my opponent. If he is at least half decent he would not be calling anything but JJxx, J9xx or 98xx if u shove. If he is a huge fish or I have decent reads stating he is capable of calling light to river shoves I will be inclined to shove.
I think u might as well consider raising the Flop cause there are many turn cards that may hinder you to get full value on ur flopped boat since u wont have the nuts anymore and u lose the ability to shove the river against a decent player. But I dont mind a call here either.

Hey guys! I had a pretty
interesting spot in an 60 Player 50€ buy-in online MTT yesterday and I
am intersted to hear your guys opinion about it.
Its fairly early in the tournament, 10 Players at the table blinds just switched to 100/200, starting stacks 5k.
I am sitting in the CO with 88 (stacksize 5300ish). Folded around to
late MP who raises to 450 (stacksize 7000ish, fishy player), HJ flats
(stacksize 5000ish, also fishy), I flat, the button squeezes to 1300ish
(fairly aggressive reg), blinds fold.
late MP takes some time and calls, HJ calls as well.
Now here is my thought process. Calling would be standard option
here, there is no way I am gonna fold. I decided to shove, cause I came
to the conclusion that the button is fairly light quite some time and I
expect the two weaker players to call pretty light here as well. I was
only worried that the reg on the button woke up with a hand. I know it
looks exactly like I have a mid pocket which I wind up having but I
figured it would still be a good spot to pick up dead money. If all fold
I win about 4.4k which means I am basically doubling up. Also the
button will have AK/AQ a lot as a big part of his value range as I
expect him to squeeze TT+ AK/AQ for value. I am not worried about the
I think my play is on the aggressive side but fine in terms of mixing up a bit.
What do u guys think?
P.S.: BU woke up with Aces (obv) and the initial raiser had AK
