Your Questions About Plo Omaha

Laura asks…

Omaha PLO or Texas hold’em;which of these two games requires more skills and brains?

poker holdem answers:

Actually gonna disagree with plo – not sure there is a right or wrong answer to this question – it does depend which game you like more and is more appealing I think

In PLO the volatility is greater do to there being so many more possibilities – and one card can much more likely take a person from the nuts to a lesser hand than his opponent – so you are more likely to have bigger pots with two people willing to get their chips in the middle on the flop or before and at that point – the cards fall where the gods decide….lol

no matter which game in theory talent and skill will still reign supreme over the long haul

I think holdem heads up requires a little more skill but one reason for that is because most people I think have a better A game of holdem than A game of Omaha PLO –

Good Luck:)

Maria asks…

who would you rather play plo hu for 50,000 hands…?

on 4 tables on full tilt poker? durrrr or Antonious?

(plo = pot limit omaha; hu = head’s up)

poker holdem answers:

Can I pick neither?

If I HAD to choose, I would probably pick Patrik because he seems just slightly more predictable. And durrrr is also currently winning the challenge. :P Either of them would crush me for sure, I am not even that good at plo to start. Give me something like triple-draw lowball or stud8, then I could maybe hemorrhage less money.

Sharon asks…

What does the “2-5” in 2-5 PLO mean?

I love playing Omaha and I’m thinking about trying out a tournament in AC since it’s right next door, but what does the “2-5” mean?

poker holdem answers:

Right.. That indicates the blinds.. Also a player can bet $2 to $5 (or raise that amount) any time during the hand. This is obviously not a turny.. But a cash game
