"Pot-limit Omaha Poker" by Jeff Hwang

25 September 2008, By:

While pot-limit Omaha and no-limit hold'em contain some similarities, they also contain some very important differences, and hold'em players who don't make any adjustments before sitting down to pot-limit Omaha are apt to find themselves in a world of trouble.

Playing Pot-Limit Omaha

For those with a solid grounding in the game of Omaha, Jeff Hwang's pot-limit Omaha is available to take their game to the next level. This book deals with strategies that may be unfamiliar to players who don't have any formal education in Omaha, but once these strategies are grasped, they can give Omaha players an enormous edge.

Pot-Limit Omaha Strategies

Hwang discusses the importance in pot-limit Omaha of redraws and freerolls. Essentially, what this means is putting in money where you not only have the best hand, but a hand that can improve on future streets. If you currently hold the best possible hand on the flop, but have no chance to improve, your hand has much less value than you might think.

Omaha 8

Although the book is called Pot Limit Omaha, this book also contains ideas and strategies for Omaha 8 or better, also called Omaha Hi/lo. Omaha 8 is becoming more and more popular and is one of the elements of H.O.R.S.E., the mixed game that is now a major part of the World Series of Poker lineup.
If you're interested in improving your pot-limit Omaha game, this is a good book to buy. While hold'em books are plentiful, Omaha books are a bit harder to come by, so when you find one that has really useful information in it, you'll usually want to snap it up.
