graph so far at nl25, a bit of a hot run yesterday.
i will also start some nl50z with $280 bankroll and see where it goes
important stuff that I learned:
multiway pots in omaha are a lot more tricky than in NL, basically you just have to count the total cards that are in play and realize how much the handstrenght requirements goes up
rainbow hands preflop are kind of bad and should not be played.
KKxx with totally unconnected cards should be folded preflop in UTG/MP/CO
right now I'm playing around 20 vpip which I think it's OK given my skill level, I still have to look every time at my hand and the flop and count my outs or try to figure out how strong I am

Hey guys, what's up
I decided to open up a thread there, as I did almost 10 years ago when I was a total beginner at NL and playing at the micros and to be honest it kind of gives me the same feeling I had back then being new to the game and I am very excited to update this thread regularly and share with you guys my experience with learning PLO. I decided to open up the thread here on RIO since I will watch a bunch of PLO vids from the site's owner
I always wanted to learn PLO for years but every time I started learning it was such a massive confusion and a big headache that I never managed to follow through with it and remained at NL-FISH level on this game. That's going to change in 2019 and I WILL LEARN PLO and I will move up in stakes, hopefully play some nl400-600-1000 as a reg??? mmm that sounds so good since I actually fired up some 400 tables and lost more than 150bbs at nonsd on a really small sample (i really don't know what i'm doing) but overall was lucky to be over aiev and win a bit
basically all I currently know about the game is some common sense preflop stuff and some postflop total random things I picked up over the years randomly watching plo
a small list of things from my PLO 6-max game:
- Fold trips preflop, disconnected hands and low cards.
- fold small pairs and small suited hands as you will get coolered postflop by better stuff
- fold medium pairs even up to QQxx if other cards suck
- KKxx open every time from any position???? not sure what to do with kinds
- always 3bet AAxx but not stackoff randomly postflop if dangerous boards come ip
- double suited rundowns are a very strong hand preflop
so this is the level I'm at.
I have $100 on stars and I will start playing PLO25z, trying to run it up from there and make a challenge for myself let's say run it up to $10k? i guess that will be solid proof I'm somewhat of a winner in PLO
I will come back later and post some hands I played, would really appreciate some feedback
