NLHE, because he could just constantly shove junk and get his whole stack in as a huge dog. In LHE, it's impossible to torch as many chips in a single hand, and in PLO, it's harder to be quite as big a dog.
If the question were: "In which game does the skilled player have the largest advantage in today's game conditions?" It's probably PLO, since there are so many attractive mistakes for the unskilled player to make.
i watched a guy yest in my 100plo game go from like $550 when i sat to like $1020 or so, we had 2 massive fish on our table and they were just bleeding chips all over us.
think i took around 2 BI myself but he was just destroying, the action in plo is just amazing... people shipping into me with straights on paired/flush boards when clearly im only betting with a house or flush
Uhhhhhmmm but to contradict how sick plo is and how much of a postflop edge you can have, I would say the biggest edge would be NLHE HU cash. Ever seen a bumhunters graph? Some of them just go in a straight 45 degree line.
