Yes use Hutchinson
method for starters and play tite and you will win at a loose table.
Bobby Baldwin chapter in SuperSystem2 on Omaha 8 or Better (same game) is an excellent read by a world champ at PLO8.
Hwang is PLO not 8 so much don't waste money on him.
Stick with good starters and position and play ABC percentages against loose table, you cannot lose unless god hates you
Remember the Platinum Rule also as described by Todd Brunson in same book, is essential in Stud8 and important also in PLO8.

Excellent advice, study percentages and EV same as u would in HE or PLO. And play them.
Most info u need to put together a skill set for yr game w Homer and Barney is available online, I would not rely on any one book. And remember, most PLO8 players new to things have no idea what we are talking about
