IMG 7661
We're not pointing any fingers but we heard some people suck at PLO.

Stop sucking at Pot-Limit Omaha by learning to play tight and play in position in the latest episode of our beginner PLO strategy video series How Not to Suck at PLO.

A lot of the people you'll meet at the PLO tables made the transition from No-Limit Texas Hold'em and chances are, the same is true for you.

The bad news is that if you approach a game of PLO based only on what you know about Hold'em, you'll find yourself in some confusing spots.

The good news is that this video series will show you how to avoid the most common pitfalls, and how to take advantage of PLO players who are too loose and play too much out of position.

One big misconception among new PLO players is that because you have four hole cards, you can play way more starting hands.

It is true that in Omaha the preflop edges are much smaller than in Hold'em -- no hand is that big a favorite over any other hand -- but that doesn't mean you should be playing every hand you pick up, especially when you're out of position.

What You'll Learn in Episode 2

In the second episode of How Not to Suck at PLO, you'll learn how to evaluate starting hand strength in Pot-Limit Omaha based on three main criteria: Connectedness, whether the hand is suited or double-suited and how big the cards are.

We'll also provide you with a rough chart outlining the kinds of starting hands you should be playing from different positions.

The truth is, there are so many starting hands in PLO it's better to be able to evaluate a hand's strength based on those three criteria we mentioned, and other factors like position, how many players are at the table and the kinds of players that are still to act in the hand.
