      For some time now I've been exploring the world wide interhighway for a good source of information on the basics, advanced and expert knowledge but so far I've had very little luck. I find the articles in the PS strategy section too vague and very loosely written, considering that I've no experience in Omaha at all and I really want to build my knowledge from the ground up.

      Enter books. If anywhere any expert can make a long-winded drawn out explanation, books are the right place to look at for that. If anyone knows of any good and well-written book on Omaha poker, please post about it here, I'm really looking for some quality material. I'd prefer to start with the basics though, so I'm mostly interested in those.

      Jeff Hwangs Pot-Limit Omaha
      Jeff hwangs Advanced Pot- Limit Omaha
      Great books
      Part of Plo in SS II was good.

      Reuben Improve your pot limit omaha
      and Rolf Slotbooms books

      Bump.

      If you (you being whoever reads this thread and is familiar with both books and has an informed opinion and can be ars'ed posting) had to pick one of either Jeff Hwang's Advanced PLO book or Rolf Slotbloom's book, which would you choose?

      If there is little to choose from either I'm going for Hwang's book because it has a cheaper FPP cost . And as we all know, cheaper is always better. :f_thumbsup:

      First Hwang book.
      The second i didnt liked that much, the hand examples seemed were a bit too simple (like : you see this guy cbet on flop , i float , he folds - this is floating).

      Slotbloom first book is, well, storytelling about how he played SS in Wienna&Amsterdam brick&mortar casinos (at least the frst part, didnt finished yet)
      Slotbloom second (talks about SH) didnt started yet.

      Slotboom's book is completely irrelevant as an education tool these days. Buy it purely for the stories.
      Hwang's first book is equally awful, full of nitty advice and a ridiculous amount of typo's and errors in the hands.

      Videos really are better than books imo. They are relevant and recent, books date super fast and a 2 year old book can be worthless now (as can a 2 year old video) however new vids come out each week. :f_biggrin:

      Dammit. I like books. I could always fork out $2.5k for an ebook... HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA.

      Well then, bring out many, many awesome theory/hand review video series so I can spend my FTPs on useful stuff like shot glasses. :f_p:
