re: Poker & PL Omaha H/L hand history audit?
Im not picking on you but some things are wrong here. Part 2 is wrong here any A2 hand is not good. A hand like A2KQ double suited is good or A234 or something like that but do not run any A2. All your doing with A2 is giving the potential that you will split the low and pay off the high.
I love omaha which is why im playing a mixed game in wsop
. Be very selective of your hands and play hands that have good chance to scoop. Play for the high and if you get low also that is great but only play hands that have good potential and be able to let them go if they dont hit.
Do not run low pairs because even if you flop set there is good chance you are still losing....also A2 hands can become counterfited real easy. Im trying to find this link now that will help you all alot written by a great omaha player. ok im going to type something out, its long.

1. Play hands that have a great potential to scoop the pot. There's nothing worse than flopping a broadway straight with the ace on the board and then someone catching runner-runner low cards to take the low half of the pot.
2. Any hand with Ace-Deuce is great because it will more often than not give you the nut low, however there is also a good chance of getting counterfeited on the low if an ace or deuce hits the board..Always play hands like Ace-2-3-4 that way you have counterfeit protection towards the low..
3. If you hit an underfill boat at a full table a good majority of the time it's no good..Don't get to war with a hand like deuces full of 6's or 3's full of 8's..You will lose big pots that way..
4. Never play hands like 4-5-6-7 or 5-6-7-8 because even if you hit the flop hard it will consist of all low cards giving another player a chance at half the pot.. It's just not profitable to play these types of hands because scooping the pot will nearly never happen..
5. If you flop a set you more than likely have to pair the board to win..A Set just will not win many pots in Hi LO
That's about all I can come up with now..I have been playing Omaha Hi Lo nearly exclusively now for the past two months because it's just a much more enjoyable game to me.. All the cool kids play No Limit Hold Em and i've never been one to follow the crowd all that much..I want to become a more well rounded player instead of a one-dimensional Hold Em player..Let me know if you need any more advice, I'm happy to help with what I've learned so far and I too hope to learn even more about the game myself..
