      Hi Philiveyfan,

      Although I am not an experienced PLO player I do know that 20bi's is definitely too aggressive. Generally PLO has ALOT more variance than Holdem and huge swings are super standard.

      I would suggest playing PLO25 with this bankroll. If you are currently pwnign holdem and want to move to PLO and play similar stakes I would suggest playing holdem until you have $5k and then moving to PLO 50 and taking shots at PLO 100 when the games are good.

      Good luck
      Patrick

      Hey there philiveyfan,

      First off, are you a beginner that has a large Bankroll, or you've built this up?

      If you are a Beginner then I'd suggest PLO25 at Max. You would still have alot to learn and would be far beneficial if you were to learn at a lower risk!
      If you're dominating PLO25, move on up :)

      Best of luck at the tables!

      Congrats! :D

      In that case it would be better to stay at the lower limits until you are ready.

      PLO = Pot Limit Omaha (We guessed this is what you're playing as its most popular?)

      The 25 stands for the BB of the game. So $0.25 :)
      50 = $0.50
      100 = $1

      And so on ...
