Re: self reliance -- educating myself in plo

My logic being we flop two backdoor flush draws and a back door straight draw. Also block top set. I'm betting pot for two reasons: 1. for hand protection/equity denial and 2. If you look at hands that likely ship on us here, I think we fare OK against that range. We have 9 outs against most two pairs, are in good shape against 9TJ. And against sets we still have equity. I'm mostly self taught in PLO, minus 2 of Hwang' s books, so again not sure if that's correct thinking or not.

Very fair question.
For one thing there's a small site I know of where a whole bunch of 2k plo sometimes runs like 4+ tables.
It's not that easy to get in volume of 2knl on U.S. sites these days.
In general I think PLO games are softer, fish are worse, regs are worse.
I also am looking to get into more live games longer term and I think PLO will be good to know in this regard.

There are also general life EV reasons where I get bored of holdem and I've found that working on PLO has made me think a lot harder about holdem and actually re-focus attention on my holdem game.

But if you want just one reason...while writing this I looked at the lobbies on one of the U.S. sites:

Re: self reliance -- educating myself in plo

I think increased volume and improved table selection are the sort of general overarching reasons.

Re: self reliance -- educating myself in plo

Yeah I put in a lot of volume on that network so if I saw that kind of traffic i'd be pretty happy, it's definitely not the norm. Altho something to consider as well is those games are pretty reg infested compared to a year ago and have very high rake. Plus those regs are good regs not the usual bad global regs that bumhunt. I know that lobby looks attractive but it really isn't that sexy. Also an extra fulltime reg actually makes a pretty big difference in softness of the games so the games you'd jump into automatically become worse on average by you being present (for me as well).
Just things i'm voicing, obviously you have good reasons for going into plo. I guess this means you intend on playing poker for longer than 3 more years?
