Pot Limit Omaha Strategy


Although Texas Hold'em has long been ruling online poker rooms like fulltilt.com, Pot Limit Omaha is quickly gaining in popularity.

A close relative to Hold'em, Omaha players need to be able to understand a more complicated game.

In addition to being skilled and disciplined, Pot Limit Omaha players at Full Tilt Poker must be capable of reading their opponents plays.

PLO explained

The point of the game is to make your best 5 card hand using only 2 of your hole cards, and 3 community cards.

All community cards in Pot Limit Omaha are dealt face up. The game starts with each player being dealt four cards. Then, there is a round of betting before 3 community cards (called 'the flop') are placed on the table.

After the flop, there is a second round of betting. Next, the fourth community card (called 'the turn') is placed on the table. This is followed by the third betting round. The last community card (called 'the river') is then placed on the table, followed by the final betting round. The best 5 card hand wins the pot.

Three raises in a row could turn a $10 pot into a $180 pot. Pot Limit Omaha tends to create bigger pots than Hold'em, and players should educate themselves for this action filled game at Full Tilt.

How to play pot-limit Omaha

Most players have a limited knowledge of the game and believe Pot Limit Omaha is just a four card version of Hold'em. This could be an expensive mistake. While bluffing is common in Hold'em, this technique will rarely fool opponents in Omaha.

With four cards to play, there are more potential big hands that can be made. As a result, there are generally more players in the hand and more players who are willing to call your bets.

It also pays well to remember betting patterns. Most good players at Full Tilt use the note-taking tool to help them remember betting patterns of their opponents.

The smartest playing style for Pot Limit Omaha is tight-aggressive. An added bonus of playing this style is that you'll tend to get bluffed less often. When you play less hands, opponents will take notice and give you credit for holding a real hand.

Players at Full tilt should choose their tables wisely, tables that provide a good opportunity for making money. While it's better to loosen up at a short-handed table, a full table should be played more tightly.

While most players prefer to change tables when the game is tight, it's possible to make money at tighter tables by playing more aggressively.

When you play aggressively it makes it diificult for opponents to put you on a hand. Although you'll lose more hands at the showdown, you'll also get paid off well when you hold a strong hand.

As one of the biggest poker rooms online, Full Tilt Poker holds so many Pot Limit Omaha tournaments that finding a place to practice is simple.

They also have tons of ring games and there is no more active room for PLO games, including the largest games on the Internet where Phil Ivey, Patrik Antonius, Tom 'durrrr' Dwan, Ilari 'Ziigmund' Sahamies and others battle in giant pots.
