We see lots of Omaha games online. We see PLO8, which I call high/lo. So what is best starting hand. I would think it would be AA23
Some might say AAKK. But my hand protects both high & low.
Poker is about evaluating you’re cards, evaluating your spots.
I say this because I see a lot of amateurs & pros playing odd hands.

I think A3/4AK hits the flop more often rather than A2 to lo

A2suited and A3suited look good.

I like A23K. This is my thinking. if an A or 2 or 3, you still have lo covered if there is a low possible.
And I like the AK suited because if there is no low, you may scoop with a straight or flush.
