Creature of leisure
I'm sure I'm the "most fish" fish here, but here are my answers. Many are guesses since I'm not at all familiar with Omaha, and not yet up on percentages and many of the terms:

1-8 D
9 A
10 B
11-14 A
15 B
16 A
17-19 C
20 A

I was going to answer A for 18, but based on question 19 changed my answer to C.
