Page 2 - This is a discussion on Pot Limit Omaha vs No Limit Holdem within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; PLO is a fascinating game - but many players don't know how to make that transition. Here are some tips:
Pot Limit Omaha vs No Limit
Can't say much about Omaha, Still in Holdem. But maybe after I become more experienced I would like to learn some Omaha.

Not just PLO - but any PL game is a great way to start for anyone if it their first time playing poker .
It helps you learn your hands as it is a slower game , and you can bet and not have to worry that others are going to keep pushing you into calling more then you want to bet.
PLO actually is fun as it gives you more outs then you would have with NL poker.
( I have even played PL Holdem to )
I like Omaha and enjoy any chance to play it - even if I don't do well in it . I just have fun period.

I'd pick No Limit Hold Em over Pot Limit Omaha any day.
I've only played PLO a couple of times and just couldn't make of it. I understand how to game goes, I just cant get used to it. At times I get mixed up playing PLO.
I have no problems with No Limit Holdem. I play well , I play good, I get money from it …….
So Holdem over PLO !

Transitioning from one game to the other is not necessarily easy. I truly enjoy the both games but have Omaha requires a higher degree of discipline and focus in my opinion.
Since everyone is holding more cards, player have more options. When you have something like two pair or even a set with a board that has possible straight and flush options the odds of someone completing the straight of flush hands increases greatly when compared to holding just two cards in Hold Em.
If I had any advise to give, it would be about pot control. If you hit the nuts on the flop it might not be the nuts on the turn still, and probably won't be the nuts on the river. So, don't get all raise happy because you have what was the best hand after the flop. There are still two cards to come Omaha is truly a game of draws. The nut hand is likely to change on every street.
Also be careful when playing straight and flushes against a paired board. A paired board in Omaha generally means full house.
Avoid counting possible dead cards as outs. For example, if a card can give you the nut flush but would also pair the board yielding a possible full house should not be counted as an out. It is likely someone out, but probably not yours.
Do some research and be prepaid to jump into the action. It can be fun and profitable. The games are different, so adjust accordingly.

I do enjoy playing Omaha, especially hi/lo. Sometimes if I am having a rough run of luck in NLHE, a short break from that with some PLO8 gets me out of my funk and back into the groove. I do mostly play more NLHE because of the ease of finding a game.

About Plo and NLH experience
I am playing PLO and NLH. Tournaments mode - only Holdem, but maybe will implement Omaha tournaments in my schedule also. Can say that swings in PLO is alot bigger than in Holdem, big wins or big looses) You can get alot action in Holdem too, but in PLO big bots are almost in every hand, especially when people love to gamble with medium-power hands )
Enjoying both games. Who didnt play PLO yet - you should try!

Game: Holdem Omaha
Sometimes I play pot-limit Omaha. I really loved this kind of poker for a long time. The only problem is that I can play it only on the Internet.

So many people play Omaha like they would Hold'em.
You should never push preflop it's the flop that determines your hand. It's not unusual for a full house to be beaten by larger full house or quads. Since you get four down cards and can only use two, look at them as couples and count your couples, pairs suited connectors. A good starting couple in Omaha 8, is A-2 suited. I love when I get that one.

Actually, I have to tell you, that I had times, when I was really messing around at usual NL-Holdem games, I started freerolling at PLO at Full Tilt. And somehow I was winning there and I learned to love this game. I was often among the last 10 players,
Unfortunately I did not dig further to this game and I think meanwhile many others are much more advanced in this game, because time passed and times changed. There are people who pretty much know, what they are doing in Omaha. Nevertheless, I still play from time to time some freerools...
But there is one thing, that I just can't do, mixing up Omaha with other games. I am just not able to multi-table with one Omaha table beside. It makes me complete crazy, altough I think, this kind of game really has its own attraction and I would like to dig deeper. But then I can play only one table.

I like the variations of Omaha. When online poker was booming in the U.S., I was playing everything available. Badugi, Razz, Stud , Omaha.

Hello there.Each game has his own beauty .Pot limit omaha promises to give you emotions and big action....A lot of time from Nutts flop you can loose and the opposite thats why you cant just check a flop at omaha if you are nutts.I think you need to gain skill and practise more in order to be a good player at omaha than at texas holdem .Good luck for every player at each game .

I like to play Omaha, it takes a bit more, because it can turn fast that the best hand until you've lost it, have to play in another way.
Test for it is very fun, but start with low efforts.

PLO is definitely my weakest game, but I'm working on it.
I've never played PLO live before.. My short term memory is so bad, that I think I'd be looking at my cards every 15 seconds to see what I have and what's changed after the flop, turn, and river lol.

Omaha's no less interesting than hold'em. It's even easier for me to play it, because it's easier to choose the one with which to play from 4 pocket cards.
