This book is helpful/relevant if you're just starting out or have never played PLO before. It helps with the fundamentals, and it is a good reference material to have for new/inexperienced players.

Hope that helps. glgl

Re: ***Official SSPLO Beginners Thread - New to PLO? Try this for quick questions/tips/chat***

Ran my bankroll down and want to do some railing/studying before I put more money on. What stakes should I be railing? (I only play 2plo, was playing zoom but this time I want to play regular 6 max tables).

Should I be railing 2plo tables or 25plo? I figure if I go up too high the game changes too much, lines and plays become more complex and railing won't be as helpful.

Any recommendations for microstakes PLO coaches that cost <$100/hour? Currently winning 10plo, probably beating 25plo but don't have sample size to be certain yet.

Re: ***Official SSPLO Beginners Thread - New to PLO? Try this for quick questions/tips/chat***

In pokertracker 4 why did I lose 100bb in AIEV with 54% equity pre and 75% equity on the flop? Is it something to do with BTN being AI pre?

PokerStars - $0.02 PL Hi (6 max) - Omaha Hi - 6 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

Hero (MP): $2.00
CO: $1.04
BTN: $0.35
SB: $2.46
BB: $2.65
UTG: $1.95

SB posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A 2 A 8

fold, Hero raises to $0.06, fold, BTN raises to $0.21, fold, BB calls $0.19, Hero raises to $0.85, BTN calls $0.14 and is all-in, BB calls $0.64

Flop: ($2.06, 3 players) 6 3 6
BB checks, Hero bets $1.15 and is all-in, BB calls $1.15

Turn: ($4.36, 3 players) K

River: ($4.36, 3 players) 7

BB shows Q T K K (Full House, Kings full of Sixes)

Hero shows A 2 A 8 (Flush, Ace High)

BTN shows T T 2 4 (Two Pair, Tens and Sixes)

BB wins $4.22
Rake paid $0.14

Is a HUD necessary for micro PLO? Or a better question might be at what stakes does a hud become necessary? I just started playing PLO and am currently playing $5PL. Not sure if it is worth the money right now.

Gl, I think this thread is pretty dead. My last 2-3 posts haven't gotten replies in here.

I think the general consensus of replies however would be that short stacking isn't a great idea if it can be avoided.

It's always going to help, no matter what stakes you're at. I'm sure it's possible to beat 2nl without a hud but it will be harder than doing it with one.

Oh I see. Well I wish I could help, hopefully somebody else will be able to though. Maybe try asking in the HSPLO thread then? Regardless of what stakes you will be playing there is probably a higher chance of finding info there for that situation. Of course you'll just have to adjust some of the strat accordingly for lower stakes villains. GL!

I figured this would be the advice. I'll probably end up investing in one but think I'll get a decent amount of hands in before doing so. Thanks!

Thanks Crock, I will give it a shot

In regards of HUD: I think that it is very important to have a tracking software to track your own hands, your own stats and analyse your own spots and leaks etc
Displaying HUD is optional, you can beat nl2 without it I think

Re: ***Official SSPLO Beginners Thread - New to PLO? Try this for quick questions/tips/chat***

Anyone playing on Winning/Ignition? Trfying to decide weather to start a little PLO challenge and trying to decide if I should start at PLO25 or PLO50? I've done okay with PLO live and online at PLO50 in the past. Just really trying to focus on learning and building towards a challange where the main motivation will be bank. Spo..

Is there going to be a big difference in skill level between the two levels?
Is rake going to kill me at PLO25 here?

I play on Ignition, I'd say start at PLO 25 bc of the rake. PLO 50 was the lowest stake affected by the newesh rake increases. PLO 25 however wasn't affected and is at the top of the rake range for the micros sharing the same structure as PLO 5 and 10.

I can't speak for winning as I don't play there but the general consensus seems to be that WPN has more regs and rake back grinders.

Thanks. Last time I did a bit of PLO grinding I had thought PLO50 there was way less rake than PLO25. Granted I don't do much research on my own! Thats what 2p2 is for. I should put a little cash on Ignitiion as well.

I kind of like knowing who I'm playing against at WPN. As I said, its not solely for win rate and I am thinking it might be good to battle against some regs and off the tables look at peoples play with PT4. Think that might be best. My real goal here is to build a really solid skillset and eventually bankroll for when we get the Wynn in Boston as I want to be able to play 2/5 PLO fully rolled and its gonna take some time to get there for me.

That sounds like a solid plan. Good luck with live. I've only played a little bit and from my experience the players are lolbad. I'm sure it isn't much different from 1/2 to 2/5 live. Most PLO 25+ regs would probably kill it, only problem is one hand at a time, and about 30 hands per hour. Also most live games (atleast around me) play 9 handed which is weird after playing so much 6 max.

yes its a ways off. the casino is just being buil i think summer 2018 it will open. there are other games around but nothing really within 45 minutes so I don't like to be wasting 1.5 hours of my day driving somewhere. i got other **** to do. i just imagine given what I am told is a very solid 2/5 PLO game at Foxwoods and what I know are some very juicy high stakes action at local games the amount of degening that will be going on when this casino first opens is going to be epic. i just want to be there for the fun.

thanks for the response and good luck on ignition!
