      I am wondering if there are any good reads on Omaha. I always see extensive lists on Hold'em but I want to have a bit of a dabble in other games. I may try looking for a book for 2-7 too. I do like to read the odd book rather than just watch coaching videos, keeps a bit of variety in me bettering myself as a player.

      Any good suggestions? :f_drink:

      Best book i read was the one from KasinoKrime, i don't remember the name of it. Should be easy to google tho. Also if you have 2k to spare you can get the one of Tom Chambers

      PLO Quick Pro Manual is $300. That's a **** load of money for one book imo.

      Well the chamber's book is 2k i think. It's like buying diamond status for 1,5 months. So i guess the price is in the eyes of the beholder. The question of OP was about good books on plo, not cheap/free good books on plo :D

      2K book is beyond anything. :D

      I have no doubt that the PLO Quick Pro Manual isn't a good book. But $300 for a book is a lot. And just in my opinion, when you sell something but don't show the price, it's not "good manners".

      Why read books if there's so much (cheap) info on the internet?

      Because books have the information available always and easily. And some learn better from reading a book than reading from the screen. In internet the information is often all over the place, and you have to gather the pieces yourself and hope there is no false information in those pieces. In a good book (referred by other players) there shouldn't be a lot of false information.

      I am reading The Big Play strategy from Jeff Hwang and it is awesome. Especially the part about straights.

      Any other recommendations?

      I believe there is not much material around about PLO, one more good reason to rely on Skodljivec and Kyyberi's material on Pokerstrategy :-)
