Best places to play Omaha or Omaha Hi/Lo?
I'm wondering which sites are the best for playing Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo (preferably Omaha Hi/Lo). I'm thinking more about fixed limit ring games, but would also like to know more suggestions for tournament options, too. The best games for making a regular profit seem to be the full ring games with a large percentage seeing the flop.
There seem to be only tiny stakes Hi/Lo games on Titan/Noble/CDPoker - 0.02/0.04, so they're fun to play on, but not really something that you can build up a big profit on.
has a few games going, from $0.02/$0.04 up to $30/60 games. I haven't played on there yet - has anyone played Omaha Hi/Lo on there to be able to comment on the quality of play there? From the lobby info at the moment, it looks like the $0.02/$0.04 and $0.05/$0.10 stakes are loose, and then the next stakes with a full ring game is $15/30, with 51% seeing the flop, which is much tighter. Does anyone have any comments on whether 51% is too right to be readily profitable? The $30/60 is 41%, which I'm pretty sure is then mostly solid players, so I'm ignoring that completely for the time being.
I've played mostly on Paradise Poker and Pacific Poker
. Paradise mainly has $0.50/$1.00 and $1/2 stakes, and with 49%-57% they're around as tight as the $15/30 games on PokerStars... I did OK on those stakes for the most part (they're what allowed me to cash out my initial starting money)... but they're definitely not the loosest games around.
I fared OK on, but I can't compare their games quite so easily since they don't give the %age seeing the flop, which I tend to find an important indicator of a good Omaha game. Has anyone played a reasonable amount on Party to say how they find it compared to Paradise or Pacific?
Pacific so far is looking to be the best one to play at for profit - at the weekend I was finding the $0.05/$0.10 mindlessly profitable, because over 80% were seeing the flop, and I've had profits at $0.25/$0.50 and $0.50/$1, too, but haven't played the higher stakes.
I'm currently playing on there at $0.05/$0.10 mainly, since I cashed out most of my money from there and am building up a bankroll from just $9, so I've had to start at the lowest stakes again. The thing that got me thinking about this was that some of the time (definitely not all of the time), there were full $3/6 and $5/10 games with 75%+ seeing the flop. The total pot sizes were slightly smaller compared to the stakes, but not hugely so, suggesting that the play was almost as loose at those stakes compared to the micro stakes. For reference, the games at the higher stakes seem to come and go - they may be there for a few hours, but there's by no means a decent game going all the time there, but has anyone played the higher stakes who can comment on how they've found the profitability of playing there?
I've looked at 32red (Prima), InterPoker (Cryptologic), and a few others, and established that they don't have any decent-stakes, regular Omaha H/L ring games, but does anyone have any suggestions for sites worth playing Omaha at apart from the above-mentioned Party, Pacific, Paradise and Stars?
On the tournament side I know a lot less - I've fared best at ring games to date (although the most profitable Omaha games actually running on Noble proved to be the SitnGos, and I played a couple of nice tourneys on Paradise), so does anyone have any suggestions for good Omaha tourney sites?
