I do think other games are more profitable. I play horse, plo, and limit Omaha8.
I believe the hayday for hold'em online is over. Profit centers are getting lower and lower. I am seeing quality play at 25nl online, even shorthanded. Is there still money to be made? yes. Is it as easy as 5 years ago? Not even close.
Pot Limit Omaha has players making mistakes all the way up. 6max is great.
Wynn has been spreading PLO live, but this game has no value for me. Its a 2-5 plo, with tough players. PLO online is great.
The mix games and Horse are really good, but my stud games are not up to snuff.
Limit Omaha 8 appears to be drying up recently online. There is really only one O8 game in Vegas, the 30-60 Bellagio. During the day the game is no good. Late at night is worth it.
Im actually looking at NL again.
So in short skilled players can leverage more skill in other games, both live and online.
