O8 Book Advice

I've always been a No Limit player but I've recently started playing O8. What are the most helpful books on the subject?

Re: O8 Book Advice

If you´re talking limit O8, you need look no further than Ray Zee´s High Low Split Poker for advanced players. Two books in one as it also covers 7 Card Stud Hi Lo.
For Pot Limit, there is a good chapter in Jeff Hwang´s first book.

Re: O8 Book Advice

If you are looking at Limit, Lou Krieger and Mark Tanner has a decent book
For pot limit, there is also Dan Deppen's book.

Jeff Hwang's chapter is quite brief - there is not a lot of great info on PLO 8 books available.

I think Deppen is the best. Pretty crazy how he analyzes and approaches the game. I split reading this book on the high and low end of the day.

Zee's book is outstanding.

There was I video I checked out years back that featured Mark Gregorich and that was decent.

Bob Ciaffone's book is very concise and worth a look.

The LO8 section in Super System is excellent.

If you're grinding low fixed limit o8, I'd recommend Mike Cappelletti's book How to Win at Omaha High Low Poker http://www.amazon.com/How-Win-Omaha-.../dp/1580421148

How does Dan Deppen's book stand up to 2017 games?
