I recently played PLO. The game is non-standard, but I really liked it. What do you like best ?

PLO is the second most popular game online so I wouldn't call it a non standard game.

The ting I like about it that players are often worse at in than Holdem.

The thing I hate about it is that since equities runs closer it is often a very high variance game.

Have a much bigger bankroll for this game than NLH,

And don't play it if you easily tilt. Because people will be drawing out on you a lot.

Hi.
Of course I like the Texas Hold'em most of all, but sometimes I also play Omaha or Horse.

I always prefer texas holdem but it does not bother me to play the omaha when I am the possibility. The most important thing is to have fun playing poker.

I noticed that PLO gives more action, because when drawing you have 4 cards on your hands. My chances of winning the Bank were more frequent than at hold'em.

I prefer Texas Hold'em. I do not like Omaha. For me, Omaha is more complicated than Hold'em.

I'm a fan of texas holdem. Other versions of poker are less interesting to me.

There both great games, but polar opposite ways to play them. In holdem tight is right and being very patient waiting for big hands seems to be the way to go about things. In omaha you can play many more hands because there is so many different possibilities having four cards in your hand, so your basically play way more hands pretty much looking to make a nut hand to get paid. I love both games but i find omaha way harder to figure out and master because there is a lot more gamble in it. The there's omaha 8 or better which is a absolutely crazy game but sooo fun to play. I love omaha.

I prefer Texas hold'em. Whenever I read and watch videos is about Texas hold'em, I rarely play PLO.

I like Omaha's pot limit better. You can collect more combinations. And more interesting. But Texas hold'em is interesting to me because it is unlimited. If Omaha is unlimited, I'll choose Omaha.

Omaha is significantly different from Hold'em primarily by the ability to bluff large, having a nut blocker. In hold'em, such bluffs work much worse. But in general, these games are similar.

Hello. It's easy to get hooked on PLO. I particularly enjoy PLO-8. For example, I've been playing PLO-8 at least three times a week for the past month or so.

I love PLO (Omaha in general) but the style of play has changed rapidly in recent years as it has gained popularity.

Just a few years ago PLO was played in a more deliberate and measured way (particularly in top flite tournaments). Quite recently PLO got traction on TV because it was/is promoted as a wild game. I remarked on this before regarding PokerGo's coverage or streams from the Kings Casino.

They feature wealthy and wild gamblers who frequently plow all in pre-flop and fight for huge pots. This bears little relation to the game I was first attracted to. Some might recall a short while ago content providers would not feature PLO because it was regarded as too complicated and too slow.

In fact Brent Hanks of PokerGo exposed a certain level of ignorance regarding PLO very recently. He both formats the Poker After Dark sessions (which have featured some of the high roller mentioned above) and is occasionally drafted in to commentate, as he was for the British Poker Open in London last month.

After featuring (pointedly) the likes of Leon, Aussie Matt and Rob Yong in a few wild and swingy PLO sessions on Poker After Dark, Hanks seemed confused during commentary for the British Open PLO play.

Surprisingly (as it seemed to appear to him) the players took the game seriously.

I never tried the PLO but I think the simple NHL or PHL can be boring earlier like the PLO. I play NHL for many years.

For me, NLH. I like how betting styles, patterns, and amounts can determine what someone can have.
