I disagree I have been learning to play the 8's or better games (pot limit omaha 8 is proving costly though)
It gets really boring just playing the same game all the time, variety is the spice of life and there are always micro limit/play money tables to learn how to play on.
We will be running different game freerolls
at somepoint, which in turn will lead to a HORSE tournament. Thats a mix of Holdem Omaha Razz Stud and Stud8.
So getting some experience under your belt will make things more fun and then if the others where you are start playing any other variation, then you will have a nice head start on them ;]
