re: Poker & Advice for a PLO noob?
I used to play micro omaha cash as my main game when I played, here's some brief advice:
-I'm assuming your playing .10/.20 but I could be wrong. If you are I would say play tight; tighten your hand range significantly preflop especially out of position. If you want to loosen up make sure its in position, its too important in omaha. You def don't want to be playing out of position with non nut draw hands against people that don't understand the complexities of omaha bluffing
, it'll get you ran over consistently.
-don't get into big pots without the nuts especially if you don't have good reads on your opponents, usually people overplay weaker hands significantly at that stake and you don't want to be in there with them if you don't feel like you can confidently call.
-If your going to play aces aggressive preflop, try to isolate the pot and get roughly 70% or more of your stack in preflop. Other then that it's probably not worth it and there are probably people on here that would tell you not to even do that. Don't get out of control preflop with any other pair. At those stakes I wouldn't even raise other pairs unless you have wide range of other hands you would raise as well. Rockets isn't always easy to read in hold em, but in omaha alot of times its a dead giveaway for rookie players that only raise pairs preflop (which makes it easier to bust players doing this if you spot it).
-I wouldn't do too much bluffing at that level, but generally in omaha the turn is the best bluff card. You want to bluff made draws, pay attention to board texture. When I say bluffing I mean big bets on made draws, outside of that, when your in position in small pots you want to be betting with air more often then not unless its a calling station. Don't be in a rush every single time to get your money in on the flop because you have a made hand, its not always a good idea even when you flop a set.
