      The most profitable game depends on your skill and your opponents skill. If you are the best player in the world then the most profitable game is simply the highest limit availible. If you are not so good then the most profitable game is probably NL100. If you are a beginner, then NL5 is probably the most profitable. Mostly NL hold'em is the most profitable game since there is the biggest skill factor in it. A lot of omaha H/L games feature 3 or 4 fish chasing big for the low half of the pot. This can be amazingly profitable too.

      The hypotesis (?) is that you are learning, reading books, playing, evaluating your hands, but you're not some kind of prophecy/born talent/whatever in this matter.

      The more profitable game is the one that can give a highly skilled player a larger profit per number of hands played.

      In FL Hold'em the edge for a good player in high stakes is very small. For BSS highly skilled players can make a lot more money per hand played. I would say the most profitable is NL Heads Up. The skilled players at that always seem to have a massive win rate.

      Phil Ivey and Hoss have over 6 BB/100 in FLHU. I'm not so sure that your edge is so much smaller. NLHE may very well not be the game that involves the most skill, PLO for example is more complicated and FL formats tend to involve more decisions for hand.

      phil and hoss run good (and at their limits rake is a non factor). plo hu is the most profitable (look at ptr at plo50 hu; TOP WINNERS) but plo hu is also the most swingy and tilt inducing

      There's no book i know of for heads up omaha. Do you know any? Or that's the reason you can make so much money, you don't have from where to learn the game?

      Yeah I have read online that Omaha is very profitable if you know what you are doing. Why? Because nobody else knows what they are doing.

      I've thought about it but it doesn't interest me...
