***New Small Stakes PLO Forum Rules*** NB: ALWAYS SEARCH BEFORE POSTING THREADS!!!

Welcome to the new PLO Forums. Due to increase in traffic the PLO forum has been split into a Small Stakes and a High Stakes forum.

The original PLO forum is now the Small Stakes forum so any archived threads should be in there.


Limits
1/2 and lower will post in the Small Stakes Forum
2/4 and higher will post in the High Stakes Forum



Posting Rules
I. Be respectful to other posters.

II. Give good advice. Give reasons. Explain yourself. Explain why you think the way you do.

III. Don't post hands in the LC thread.

IV. Please try to limit threads you start to no more than 2 per day. Instead, reply to other people's threads. Ask questions. Grunch. (See below.)





Posting Guidelines
I. Put the limits in the title of your thread:

Good Examples
2/4 HU NFD+Mid pair
10/20 FR 5-bet min raise bluff


Bad Examples
400plo what should I do?
Tricky spot with top two


II. Be sure to give reads on any players in the hand.

III. Do not post the results in the thread or even post action past the point in question.

IV. Gives us YOUR thought process. Tell us what you think about the situation.

V. Convert your Hand History!!!

VI. If your question is primarily about whether or not to go AI or call an AI, you are highly encouraged to run a propokertools simulation prior to posting. If you are still unsure after doing so, then post.





PLO FAQ



What is a "Grunch"/"Grunching"?
A well respected 2+2er, The Grunch, once made a post encouraging posters, particularly newer posters, to respond to an initial hand posts without reading the responses. The point of this is mainly to encourage original responses not influenced by the opinions of other (often well respected as established) posters. It also serves to create a wider variety of responses. New posters are strongly encouraged to Grunch, as it really does help them improve their game.

That being said, there's much more to learning from the forum that just posting blind responses of how you'd play a hand. One, obviously, is to come back to the thread and find out why your answer differs with the answers of others. It might be that you have some sort of important misunderstanding about a poker concept. Ask about it, and make sure you get a thorough explanation. Alternatively, you might have it right and should step up and explain your reasoning to the benefit of all. A good back and forth dialogue is what makes the best threads, not an endless string of people giving the same answer.

Additionally, while this is a great way for new posters to get their feet wet around here and to mark their posts as someone who's trying to learn rather than give answers, it may not be best as you start to get better at being able to answer hands without biasing yourself with the opinions of other posters. As you get more comfortable around here, instead try reading a hand post and think of your answer before reading any replies. Then, once you think you've worked it out, read the thread and see what the forum has to say. If they agree with what you thought was the right answer, you can skip posting your answer and move on to the next thread. If they disagree, try and understand why. Respond to the thread if you have something to add, someone to correct, or if you still need clarification.

PSA: NSFW Pics aka How to not get banned

I've posted these before, but here are the rules for posting NSFW content:

1) No female nipples, male or female genitals, or bare asses are allowed, ever/anywhere. Spoiling them does not make posting them okay.

2) If something is NSFW (not safe for work), it must be in spoiler tags. If you are unsure if something is NSFW, it's probably better to spoil it just to be safe.

3) If you link to something that is NSFW, it must be marked as such.

4) Not spoiling something that is NSFW or posting any of the items from #1 will result in warnings, infraction points, or banning depending on the severity of the offense and the user's history.

Please PM me if you have any questions.

~ PIC POSTING RULES ~

As I'm getting old and grumpy, I wanted to reinforce to pic posting rules which are in place and can be found here.

We are getting an increasing amount of post reports based on female pics in the LC/BBV threads. I think it's better to err on the side of caution and put all female bikini, lingerie and similar pictures in spoiler tags. Small inconvience for you as a poster, but it gives everybody a "safer" forum experience. And if you are as hungry for a good sideboob as I am, it's a small task to click the spoiler open when the time is right

Thanks for understanding.

I wanna elaborate on the bare ass/female nipple ban a bit:

See-through clothing is not sufficient to make pics allowed, so avoid stuff like this:

NSFW!!!

Honest mistakes are exactly that and many cases are debatable, but don't go on a spamming rampage, or else...
