Default Omaha HL

I played Omaha HL for the first time yesterday and I must say, I'm starting to like it. I love how you split the pot if you have nothing and hit the low!
But it does suck when you have a great hand and you split it.

If you play at Noble Poker they offer a $500 freeroll every Sat. at 6 p.m. est. for players that played 50 raked omaha hands for the week. The raked hands can be played in H/L or regular. I`ve played for 3 weeks now, finished 3rd for $75 and 2nd for $125. There are only 30 to 40 players every week and they pay top 5. Its really a great deal for omaha players. The freeroll is PL omaha.

Yeah, i love Omaha and H/L also and thanks for the heads up napcuz on the freeroll tournament.

I'll probably start playing some Omaha ring games just so i can be eligible for the freeroll.
Good thing its only 50 raked hands coz i play a lot of HoldEm and i wouldnt want to have a conflict of time schedule between the two.

Maybe ill see you in the next Omaha Freeroll, GL!!!!

i play very little omaha ans even less omaha high low...i simply can't stand when they go all in preflop or make very big raises..omaha isn't a game like holdem poker...the flushes and str8 are very easy to make in omaha and th baddest part about hi-low is when you have to split with someone when you have a very good high card...it happened to me to split the pot with someone that made the low hand and i a had four of a kind aces

Cheers,
W13rd0W

Default Awesome game

For some reason this game is very easy for me, i have won numerous O8b tournaments with over 100 people in them. I attribute this to a number of books and a combination of a few theories. Not all pros agree on the same way to play this game. It has so many nuances. SO much fun though, i definitely reccommend checking it out.

my luck on omaha hi/lo is not very good. maybe it has somthing to do with the fact i barely understand how to play. If anyone has any good links, or knows of a tutorial to how to play good omaha hi/lo or een how it works, i would greatly appreciate it. ANd, whats the best possible hand preflop. im assuming AAKK .. but what if you are holding a near royal flush in your hand, i know only 2 of your cards move in, but your straight possibility has to be pretty high? or would the best 4 card combination be a rainbow? to open flush draws? i'm not sure...

I've played Omaha H/L a few times and at first found it a bit disconcerting. lol, trying to figure out if you are wishing for the high or low hand or if you should just fold. It can get expensive in tournamnets when you have everyone going for one or the other lol. And it's strange to be wishing for a "nothing" hand. Oh well.....

Default just holdem

Ive played omaha HL only in fun tables, its hard to get at first but its ok I wouldnt really go on a tourney of this game, I consider it hard and complicated I wouldnt even pay for a tourney in normal omaha holdem is the game for me.

I don't know much about hi lo Omaha, but one thing I've learned is that the best starting hands are thought to be those that have as many potentially good combinations of cards as possible, with chances to scoop both the high and low pots. If I recall correctly, the best is something like AA23 double suited, which gives you two chances at the nut flush, a pair of aces (obviously), and the three best starting cards toward the nut low hand, with a bit of counterfeit protection as an added bonus.
