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

Hey, trying to teach a friend some PLO but want to give him something to start learning to understand at least some concepts before we start. Could someone recommend some kind of a starting point for it? like a course or series of articles which explain the basics? i had some links but dont know where they are + could be outdated.
thank you

I remember a while back seeing something about a set with the NFD being the best hand to get stacks in on the flop

I play in very fishy micro games, is it worth limping behind with most suited ace+pair hands? What about calling raises on the BTN?

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

So i have started playing plo. Currently grinding PL4 on the MPN network and these are my results so far.

Are there any glaring leaks based on this small sample? Maybe calling a little too much? i notice my aggression by street gets higher from flop to river, whereas most of my opponents aggression is higher on the flop than it is the river. What would be the norm? And what information would villains take from this?

Thanks!

Re:total newbie question outs and card odds in Omaha

Total Omaha newbie here:

C:\Users\Stephen1\Downloads\KK with QJ_ how far behind am i if opp hits an Ace on the flop.png

Re Above situation me w KKQJ and opponent has hit an Ace on flop

I believe I have 8 outs for absolute nuts straight. From my Holdem knowledge I would say the percentage I have for winning given all in on flop is 32% requiring pot odds of 2.2 to 1.

There is also a chance of runner runner 9 and 8 for straight to King - but that would be insignificant?

Where does the extra value calculated by

in the above picture come from?

Thanks for any help.

Mostly play nlhe, thinking of jumping into the 2/2 PLO that runs at a local cardroom. I have played some live PLO in the past and I felt like buying in for 100bb was short compared to everyone else, but I don't know if I'm really trying to buy in for 250 bigs in a game that I know I don't have an edge in. I've been searching around for some threads on live PLO buy in amounts but haven't come up with much. Thoughts?

I would buy in short, even shorter than 100bb. There's going to be a lot of value getting it all in preflop and on the flop. After you are more comfortable, buy in deeper to cover and target other deep stacks.

How wide should you defend the BB against an SB open in zoom PLO with no reads/hud stats? I chose to defend with Qc9c6d2d just now, and while the hand went well (flopped trips and turned a boat against a wrap draw, so gg), I'm not sure about the decision to call pre - was that a reasonable hand to defend with?
