Poker Ramblings of cmitch

Yes, I haven't posted in a while, but I'm not going to make any excuses.  I've been busy with work and family life and just haven't found the time or felt like posting much.

I am going to be out of town for most of the next month or so and figured that I can probably use what little down time that I have in the hotel room to learn how to play PLO cash games.  I'm not talking about just watching a video or two and them jumping in and playing.  I'm talking about trying to really learn in depth how to play PLO cash - watching several videos, reading as much as I can and running some simulations as I gradually start playing.

Who knows, I may not even like the game at the end of the day, but I at least want to give it a shot.  The variance may drive me insane, but I won't know unless I give it a try.

So far my plan is to start with the following:

- Watch the DeucesCracked Solid State PLO series (all 8 videos) by DJSensei and delcrossb
- Read the Jeff Hwang's first two books (Pot-Limit Omaha Poker and Advanced PLO Vol. 1)

I'm not sure which video series I will watch after that.  I'll probably scan through KasinoKrime's (coach over at DC) extensive notes that he took while watching the different PLO video series and see which one seems the best.

I'll post my results (both good and bad), questions on hands, and other random PLO thoughts that pop into my head over the next month or two.

Any advice on resources (videos, books, blog posts, forum posts, etc, etc) would be appreciated.  I'm probably not going to hire a coach for a little while, but let me know if you have any experiences or know of any good PLO coaches.

  2. The Hwang books are very good, but be aware of the game's he's mostly writing about. 100BB online games are different and require some strategic adjustments from what he's mostly writing about: deeper live games.

    I look forward to hearing about your PLO experiment.



  3. Let me know what you think. I am playing those games too. I am doing the "learn from your mistakes" method as usual. Would be interested in hearing anything you have to say about strategy and the like.


  4. i can't even spell PLO, gl with it.


  5. GL GL GL! If you want to talk about coaches, let me know. I have some contacts.


  6. Hwang's first book is ok if you're wanting to learn the very basics but it is geared towards deep-stacked live full ring Omaha.

    I've justed started readung the Advanced Vol.1 and so far I like what i have read. GL learning LOLMaha!
