- Know what to play
Whether it’s raising or folding, the structure of a PLO game requires you to pay close attention to the cards that make up your starting hand. It’s always good to have a healthy mix of:
- High cards > low cards
- Connectors JT98 > QT89
- Suits: At least one suit K high to A high (without blocking your own chances of hitting that flush)
- Respect position
Acting last certainly helps you define your opponent’s range better because in a game of PLO, it’s hard to make hands. The position certainly helps you in a heads-up pot when you check and it gets easier for you to wager and take it down.
- Folding makes you money in PLO!
A game of PLO has you calling pre-flop and the flop with a probability of that big hand. In a game of Hold’em, you might just hold good, but in 4 Card Pot Limit Omaha, it might not be a great hand. For example: You have Kh Qc 5h 7s flush draw + gutty on a Jh 4h 8c flop. When you do win, you win a small pot but chances are when you play a big pot, you will very often run into a bigger draw and or just draw dead. So, when you wager in 4 Card PLO, you always want to place a wager when you believe you can get your opponent to either call with a worse hand or lay down a better one.
- Money Management is crucial
In a game of Hold’em, a cushioning of 50-100 buy-in bankroll might suffice since the variances are a lot lower. However, in 4 Card Pot Limit Omaha, you need a lot more cushioning considering hand equities are much closer. It’s good to have a daily 5 buy-in stop loss for PLO, remember a bad day and a bad mind frame can be detrimental here.
