      Hi PokerStrategists from Silver-status and up,

      Time: 16:30 GMT

      Make a note in your diary for the momentous date the 3rd of Nov.
      I shall be doing a live coaching session at 6:30pm CEST/4:30pm (not to be confused with a live couching session which involves lots of watching TV, or a live coughing session which is very uncomfortable).

      This 4rd session will be a PLO question and answer session. You can leave your questions here, or post a hand history in the judging forums then link to it here if you would like a more detailed reply. Obviously questions on the day will also be taken but priority will first go to questions asked in the forum.

      This is aimed at every skill level for Omaha from beginner to advanced.

      Hey Guys , i hope my english doesn´t kill your mind !

      I don´t know how many years i played NL Mtt´s, SitnGo and Don´s ...

      But Now i play PLO 50 with a BRM of 30Buyins. Its very profitable but im not sure about some spots.

      1. Preflop Allin with any AAxx ? no reads about Villian / against regular

      2. Resteal at BB with s.th. like Kh4hQs3s ? no reads & against regular

      3. Coldcall or Raise with med. hands ?

      I just missed this coaching. But as I said in the last minutes of coaching, I will advertise this in our Finnish community. Might be that I can lure couple of omaholics to this ;)

      You don't need 90 minutes to give Swedish PLO strategy. Press one button "bet pot" :f_biggrin:

      Yes, but most of them doesn't really understand it when listening. But I will advertise it too in our community, as there are still many players that speak and understand swedish pretty good.
