Omaha 8 can be a complicated game, if you are unaware of how to win. There is a kick to this game - there's a low pot. A low pot is made up of five different cards, ranging from ace to eight. There isn't always a low pot, but there is always a high pot. This is the game where crappy starting cards can take down half the pot. It's almost always a good idea to raise with an ace and a two, in your hand. Now, let's say you are holding an ace, a two and a three. This hand is much more powerful than just an ace and a two. You can always raise with this starting hand. This hand is much stronger because it allows you to have a chance at the low pot, if an ace, a two, or a three were to hit. You can never lose a pot with an ace to five straight. However, you have to be careful in this situation. It won't always happen, but it will happen - being quartered. This means you share the low or high pot with just one player, and he/she would win the other pot, entirely. You are beaten once and have tied the other hand, so you are left with a quarter of the pot. There is no way to avoid this. Sensing this is almost impossible as well. Choose your starting hands wisely.
thanks for the advice, i appreciate.

Never play all-in on preflop with only a low combination, you can only play all-in if you have a few blinds left.

Omaha 8 help and advice
your best hand in PLO8 is AAK2 or AA23 at least you have a good chance on hitting a winning hand.with a high and a low hand. it's better when your cards or suited more chances to win. the low hand you don't have to have a straight to win has 3 cards on the table are below and 8. if you don't have an ace and a two in your hand if a two does not come up on the table. you might not win.
