      Hi,

      First, a few things about me:
      i started playing online poker 3 years ago with FL holdem FR, than played also NLH (sng's, mtt's and less cash) and than found PLO8. Played mostly cash games and a few mtt's. I had some success at FLH and NLH sng's and mtt's. But i love so much PLO8 although i did lose some money in order to learn to play it and than some more thinking i know to play it and ran bad and than some more.

      I stopped playing at the beginning of this month and thought for a while and decided to give it one last try before i quit, with a better approach if possible.
      Before i start playing again i need to get better somehow.

      I'm asking here if there is some better PLO8 player out there willing to help me with my game. And i think there are some forms of doing that and also give something valuable to the community (like videos with sweat sessions, leak finding etc).

      Basically i'm asking for help and want to find out if there are any people who think and are willing to help, costfree if possible. And if there are we'll try to find the best form of doing that, win-win if possible.

      I'll post a more detailed plo8 playing history if necessary!

      Looking forward for replies.
      Best regards!

      I could do with help also as moved over to omaha8 from hold em, game appears more exciting and also better for building a bank roll but just feels fuller.

      Thanks in advance

      Are you hinting at more variance

      It's actually a really nitty game if you're planning on winning, but a very exciting game if you want to play badly :f_biggrin:

      Erm OK Ribbo I think I fall into the area of wanting to win so I think I need to pucker up like a whales backside at 5 miles down but is it a better game for bank roll building

      If you play well there is almost no variance in the game. Winning players take the money off the fish so fast in PLO8.

      I believe Jeff Whangs book is on PLO hi? Dan Peppen wrote a book devoted to PLO8. I haven't read it though, but I think there are some reviews on 2+2.
