PLO & MIxed Games
Improve your PLO and Mixed Games Play.
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.

Take up mixed games!
Mixed games are becoming more and more popular. The World Series of Poker features events such as Omaha 8-or-Better, Deuce to Seven Triple Draw, Razz, Stud High and Stud 8-or-Better – all of which are covered in detail in this book. There are also formats such as Dealer’s Choice, H.O.R.S.E., and 8-game, which require expertise in many of these games.
Dylan Linde is a professional poker player and mixed games expert. In Mastering Mixed Games he gives a thorough introduction to each variant, explaining the rules and basic strategy before moving on to discuss advanced concepts. With this book you will specifically learn:
solid pre-flop ranges and hand strategies
how to apply generic concepts to each individual game
how to recognise and exploit your opponents’ tendencies
The basic themes of poker apply to all games and learning a new variant is, essentially, just understanding how to value new ranges in a new game.
Mastering Mixed Games will enable you to join the whole new generation of players who are exploring the weird and wonderful world of mixed game poker.
So, you want to get better at poker? You are committed to this and you are prepared to spend time on it. You ask advice and what do people tell you? Probably something along the lines of “just keep working on it and you’ll get there.”
This is wrong. “Just working on it” will not help you. Randomly analysing hands, watching poker on TV or vaguely looking at equity equations won’t cut it. The only approach that will work is the right sort of practice based on a relatively new area of psychological investigation – the science of expertise.
This book identifies precisely what this “right sort of practice” entails. It is based around what has become known as purposeful practice. Purposeful practice is the gold standard for anyone who wishes to take full advantage of the remarkable adaptability of the human brain and is the fast track route to improving your poker skills.
This book will give you:
A clear theoretical understanding of the science of purposeful practice
Numerous techniques by which this can be adapted to improvement at poker
Specific exercises designed to create an infallible Plan for Poker Improvement
