I play 95% tournament poker and I am just starting to dabble in PLO. Does anyone have any tips for someone making the transition.

Thank you for posting/

Starting hands are so much more important in PLO than NL especially in 3 bet pots.

JhTh9c8s is so much better a hand than TT99r when playing multiple villains in big pots.
AKKTr is a better hand in a 3 bet pot than KKTTr etc etc etc.

V tendencies also play a big part in hand selection -hands we would 3 bet in 200PLO we would fold in 50PLO.

Luuk Botter has some great youtube videos he is a coach on Jnandez's team- check out Jnandez low limit videos- PLO low limit and high are 2 very different forms of PLO.

There are some twitch streamers who do coaching streams check those out. Jnandez does as well.

Hope this helps

Welcome to the best game brother!

Biggest mistake I see in Holdem players moving over is playing hands that all 4 cards don't work together, but it looks like a good Holdem hand is in there. AK94 is hot garbage, T987 is nice.

If you're playing a pair you're looking to make top set, and break a smaller one. This game is about the river and making the nuts versus second or close to second nuts.
