Does No Limit Omaha exist anywhere?
I don't understand why this isn't a standard game.
When NLHE took off it became massively more popular than limit and pot limit so couldn't this happen with Omaha.
Do any sites actually offer it?

Yap seems like they have them on Merge as ring games from 0.10 / 0.20$ up to 25 / 50$, but never seen anyone play them, real money games.

Its more of a crap shoot with NLO.. I am pretty sure tilt also offers it but to be honest from what i seen, ppl just tend to shove pf so ur just super gambling. Omaha is more of a postflop game if that makes sense. So the skills comes more into play postflop than preflop.

Strangely enough, NLO H/L is offered at both FT & PS (although at PS it starts at $.10/$.25, while PL & Limit are available for lower. I don't consider H/L less of a post-flop game than Hi only. IDK, maybe Omaha Hi players are more purists, and consider PLO to be sacred or something. :p

lol nlo is not poker. Optimal bet sizing in nlo will just be huge and stacks would get in far too easily considering how close equities are. Forcing people to only raise pot and getting postflop with deeper stacks makes it a much more interesting game.

Too many lead change possibilities in Omaha for NL in my opinion. Not that there can't be in holdem as well, but not nearly as big of swings

Anyone who asks about NLO has never really played PLO...

I would never under any circumstances play omaha no-limit. It would be insanity. And PLO is my primary game now. I also played as high as $100 NLHE at Stars.

You can't compare omaha to hold em in this way at all.

Haha... Yes I would most definitely agree. I believe the higher stakes play money tables of Omaha NL on PS are testimony to that statement.

But, in the interest of concerned Omaha players(I think someone mentioned it earlier), both full tilt poker and PokerStars offer No Limit Omaha H/L in "real" money. However, everyone knows that play money games are more fun.
