I only loosely know how to play PLO.

Standard?
It's way higher variance than limit and nl hold'em so seems possible. I've also heard ability of the typical player is much lower, super fishy pool.

+1

Also, plo plays much bigger than nlhe and the stakes hf played were high (esp w the 3rd blind). 2/2/5 plo is like 10/20 nlhe or 50/100 lhe, Iíd guess. A lot of the variance results bc the preflop equities run much closer in PLO. Postflop, getting it in against a somewhat reasonable player and being greater than a 2/1 favorite is rare. Knowing these things makes me feel a whole lot better that Iíve prob lost more at plo than any other game haha

The few times I've played there is much much less preflop aggression at PLO cash vs. NLH.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

QQ, AQo x2, TT, AKs, AJs all didn't pan out within one hour. I might've misplayed one, the rest just ran bad. Crashed down 30 BB after a big heater last session.

I'm having a hell of a time trying to deposit on ACR. Regulators telling me I have to go play a bigger higher variance game instead of playing online is like making cocaine legal but keeping weed illegal.

.... oh I actually have an irl friend who can do that too. Sometimes I miss the painfully obvious.

In other news, I got my old account back. DrHoldem no more, now back to Reaper! DougL is the man!

No third blind - these games are all 1-2 or 2-2, but it is $5 to call PF or max raise is $15. Definitely more action and variance, but doesnít play as big as you
are thinking. Probably between 2-5 and 5-10 nl and 10-20 and 15-30 lhe pot size wise.

Same rules as Arizona SL games or true PLO up there?
