      Hello everyone,

      I never heard of bad NLH player that switched to PLO and made better at this game, but I am willing to take a shot. I began to read PLO from scratch and I find it very useful because I had no ideea about the game (like starting hands...). Some might say that it is too old stuff, it is more for FR tables and so on, but in my opinion it's more than enough for micro stakes.

      I will invest $100 for this experiment wich is 50 buy ins for PLO2 and I will be playing at 6max tables. For start I will be at regular ones but I might switch to zoom ones at some point. The bankroll management scheme that I will be using is the one mentioned in the book, 50+10.



      I have no ideea what should be a mediocre to decent winrate at PLO2, PLO5, PLO10, PLO25 to have some kind of clue how it should go after I play a little bit of this game. If someone can help me with this it would be great.

      I will edit this first post at the end of each month, with stats and graph and a few words about how I felt at the tables.

      Good luck all! :f_drink:

      Goals until the end of February:
      1. Take my first shots at NL10. (bankroll 350$)
      2. Go to the gym at least 4 times a week

      JANUARY OBJECTIVES:

      :diamond: get as much info as possible from PLO from scratch into my head
      :diamond: watch videos with PLO sessions
      :diamond: study PLO hands discussed on thread "Hand discussions for Omaha"
      :diamond: play around 30.000 hands
      :diamond: move to PLO5 asap

      I am playing on PokerStars. I have to get used with big swings and keep calm at the tables no matter what.
      First session at PLO2 went ok:

      Hello!

      First a typo - you want to move up to PLO5 asap :f_wink:

      My thoughts to your hand:
      I wouldn't check-raise against four other players without the nuts and/or the possible nuts on further streets. You didn't want to protect the hand therefore I would try to keep the pot small. You wasted literally 17BB on the flop and the turn would have been around 40BB smaller ($0.34). This would save money one the turn, and after getting reraised you can expect that someone is free rolling.
      But to be honest - I don't know how much I would have lost.

      Good luck for your journey!

      Flop: pot donk/ call single raise, turn pot donk shove any safe turn.

      I got so used to "NL" term that I automatically right it down. :) )

      Regarding the hand posted above, I was almost sure that someone would have bet on that flop giving me the opportunity to pot it afterwards having the nutstraight at that moment. On that turn potbet standard for me I suppose and the river is what it is. :)

      Are you folding on that flop after multiple raisings in front of you with nutstraight?

      The graph from today:


      Man, sometimes I have no ideea what to do with my hand and I just fold it. I need to study alot at this game because I suck big time when I get 3beted, actually I have no clue what to do whether I 3bet or I am being 3beted. Another problem I have with AA hands that have bad cards along with them.

      It might be a dumb question but OOP it's a must to 3bet AA with weak cards against whales? Or should I do it only IP?
      I need some advice with this hand:

      Here is another one with the same guy mentioned before but this time OOP:

      ***********************************

      Somehow I am loosing alot of pots in witch I invest 20-25bb. Most of them are pots that I 3bet preflop and give up later. I have to check that out a little bit.
      Here is another hand that I had no ideea how to play it postflop:

      Hero mucked A Q A T and lost (-$0.41 net)

      At that moment I just thought "lets make a small bet after the 3 checks and see what will happen with the intention to fold if someone raises". I followed the plan but I doubt that it is ok what I did there. What do you think?

      Today I decided to play at the ZOOM tables of PLO2. I played only around 1k hands but the feeling is that the opponents are tighter than at the regular tables.
      Here is the graph of the session:

      And here is another hand with AA that I guess that I played like shit again:
      Poker Stars, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Omaha Cash, 6 Players

      SB: $3.26 (163 bb)
      BB: $2.32 (116 bb)
      UTG: $3.07 (153.5 bb)
      MP: $2 (100 bb)
      Hero (CO): $2.21 (110.5 bb)
      BTN: $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A A 8 2
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.07, 2 folds, BB raises to $0.22, Hero calls $0.15

      Flop: ($0.45) 4 2 9 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.28, Hero calls $0.28

      Turn: ($1.01) 6 (2 players)
      BB bets $0.68, Hero folds

      Results:
      $1.01 pot ($0.03 rake)
      Final Board: 4 2 9 6
      BB mucked and won $0.98 ($0.48 net)
      Hero mucked A A 8 2 and lost (-$0.50 net)

      Villain is playing 40/22 and this is his first and only 3bet but the sample is of only 51 hands. I guess that I should have 4beted and go with it, right?
      Good luck all! :f_drink:

      I can't give you much advice about 3/4-bet - not because I'm mean but right now that topic is a mess in my head and I'm struggeling too.

      But to your question(s) yesterday: I think it's perfectly fine not to 3-bet aces when the only thing you really can hope for is top set. Specially when you will be OOP and specially when you are deep.
      I think on the 3rd hand your c-bet was too small to accomplish anything other than giving proper odds.

      Your hand from today: myself would have raised his bet on the flop.

      Now I'm wondering which path you will take - loose or fast? And most important keep the positive results coming in!

      I'll keep playing ZOOM a few more days at least to see how it goes.
      I played another session that ended a few moments ago. Man, I got in alot of sick spots and got rivered alot, that's how I felt for sure. :)

      I am f.... intrigued by the last hand of the session though:

      UTG: $3.24 (162 bb)
      MP: $2 (100 bb)
      CO: $1.89 (94.5 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $5.82 (291 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A J 3
      3 folds, Hero raises to $0.06, SB folds, BB calls $0.04

      Flop: ($0.13) 3 A J (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.10, BB raises to $0.43, Hero folds

      Results:
      $0.33 pot ($0.01 rake)
      Final Board: 3 A J
      BB mucked and won $0.32 ($0.16 net)
      Hero mucked K A J 3 and lost (-$0.16 net)

      What the hell is he raising on that flop?! Villain is playing 37/7 but I had only 37 hands on him, and never raised a cbet before. I was just thinking that he has a set and I am way behind in this case even though I have the floped cards in my hand too. Decided to make a tight fold. What do you think? Am I playing too tight?

      Good luck!

      Unfortunately - sometimes it's brutal.

      Number 1: Your opponent made a perfect slowplay. You could have tried to c-bet the flop to see if someone has a claim with trips for the pot. But whit this turn it could have been easy overfull vs underfull or your full house vs pocket kings with nutflush.

      Number 2: UTG has 36.5% - not that bad vs two player. If SB had aces - 40.9%. But I agree, not enough connected to play in the first place.

      Number 3: As nuts you can only hope for a top set. Maybe a wheel. No flush no straight with 2-7 or 7-A. And you will be OOP in futher streets. And on this flop - it's so easy to have something.

      Number 4: For me this are Aces with rags +OOP +vs potentially 3 oppnents. First you call, and then instead of closing the betting round (or even fold) you are re-initiating a new betting round. And how does someone feel about their hand when limp/raise? Maybe AA** too - but mostlikely better ones and IP vs you. But as played your decision on the flop was correct.

      I'm not sure - maybe I give away value. But at this stake there is enough value in other spots and I can still improve on higher stakes.

      Well, I thought that I should keep the pot small since we were a little bit deep and that is the main reason for calling the 8cents first, but when the guy after me 3beted to 38cents, gave me the perfect opportunity to get alot of my chips in preflop and not to call there for set value, and after that shove almost on any flop.
      I thought it was easier to play but still could there be a better way, I don't know. :)

      Hey. Sorry i sm writing from mobile so wont qoute.

      I refer to a hand from few days ago. You didnt 4 bet aaxx. When you are 150bb > u should always 4 bet/ jam every aaxx. When you call it you risk making many mistakes postflop. U nwver make mistake by 4bet aa.

      What is more: with aa in 4 bet pots psb is around 1 so in hu you always shove or call a donk. In 3 way u go allin in 90% ( maybe u could fold on boards like 789 monotone) i am writing this because u were confused in some spots when u hold aa and spr was very low.

      Man, it is going worst than ever at the ZOOM tables. I just can't win a fucking hand. Here is he graph from today:

      Lost alot with AA as always against villains that called witl all kind of shit and hit magic turns and rivers as allways. I might just suck big time at this game so I'll take a break from it and get back when I am a little bit more prepared.
      Good luck all!

      Man, looking at some hands from todays gives me a headache. I played horrible this time. Just a couple of hands from today:
      Number 1
      I guess that here it should have been more ok just to call the flop and fold on that turn afterwards, right?

      Here I should have folded that flop. Is it normal for the villain to play like that preflop with that kind of hand? I still have troubles understanding some of the lines..

      This hand was against a villain that seemed agressive, but probably made a huge overplay here as well:

      In conclusion, I have to study more about the game and only after that hit the tables again. I have to be alot more tight and not go broke like a kamikaze like I did so far.
      Good luck all!

      Good news!
      I managed to recover most of the losses from PLO ZOOM playing NL2 and I will start playing again PLO tomorrow but at normal tables this time.

      I will try to play as tight as possible and see how it goes. Current bankroll is at $96.36.

      Good luck! :f_drink:

      PS: me "lucky" as always
