INTRODUCTION TO MASTERING SMALL STAKES POT-LIMIT OMAHA
Welcome to the wonderful world of Pot Limit Omaha!
With four hole cards instead of two, PLO is a far more nuanced game than No-Limit Hold’em and one that emphatically rewards greater skill. This makes it a very profitable game for serious players – especially when playing at the small stakes where recreational players consistently make expensive preflop and postflop mistakes.
Mastering Small Stakes Pot-Limit Omaha is a thoroughly comprehensive guide that will give you all the tools you need to gain a huge edge at lower stakes play. Fernando “JNandez” Habegger is a successful high stakes professional player and leading PLO coach with his own training site at PLOMastermind.com. He has trained hundreds of players to become successful at PLO.
In Mastering Small Stakes Pot-Limit Omaha, preflop play is broken down by identifying nine different hand categories and analysing how hands within each of them are handled preflop. Postflop analysis is based around the powerful technique of the Four Pillars of Postflop Play. The combination of these two creates a powerful gameplan that constitutes a fast track route to domination at the lower stakes. Further topics include adjusting to live play, PLO tournaments, building the right improvement habits, dealing with variance, and managing your PLO bankroll.
Learning about the “Four Pillars of Postflop Strategy” reframed my decision making process in even the closest spots. Now I feel more comfortable identifying when a hand is a clear raise, call, or fold on the flop, and find myself in fewer marginal situations on later streets than previously.
Mastering Small Stakes Pot-Limit Omaha should be required reading for any player new to PLO or transitioning from NLHE. Fernando has spent more time engaged in a deep study of PLO than anyone on the planet, so you can be confident his recommended strategies are +EV in any game format and will remain so for many years to come.
The days when you could be successful in poker by only playing and sometimes reviewing your own hands several times a week is long gone, if you’re serious about improving and want to take your game to the next level, JNandezPoker is one of the best choices you can make.
Even if I have been a professional poker player and student for more than a decade, this is the first time I really feel like one, thanks to Fernando and the PLO Mastermind team.
I was able to move from playing Low to Mid-High stakes PLO in an incredible short time frame by following Fernando’s example. He taught me how to think as a crusher and how to push myself every day to find new methods and new routines that could improve my game and my life as a whole.
