These books focus exclusively on the game of Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) with a heavy emphasis on cash 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.
Most PLO books advocate a highly conservative game-plan – this style is outdated and will get you crushed in today’s games.
Mastering Pot-Limit Omaha is different. It is a unique and remarkable book, outlining a whole new approach to the game:
teaches you an aggressive style
provides you with clear guidelines on how to develop your game-plan and adjust to your opponents
teaches you how to analyse board textures – the key to success in PLO

pre-flop hand selection and pre-flop hand dynamics – including analysis of wide 3- and 4-bet ranges and the theory behind optimal bet-sizing.
how to use equity shifts on turn and river to your advantage and how to bluff correctly.
how to understand the game better and develop a holistic view of the play: connecting pre-flop decisions to action on later streets.
Plus much more…
A clear game-plan and the right mind-set will improve your win-rate tremendously and give you the edge against your opponents.
Mastering Pot-Limit Omaha will give you that edge!

Pot-limit Omaha is a major big bet poker variant which has increased hugely in popularity on both sides of the Atlantic over the past twenty years. Omaha is a fascinating game in which each player receives four hole cards (as opposed to just two in hold’em) to complement the five community cards. This leads to complex and interesting play, and offers great possibilities for the expert player to outmanoeuvre weaker opposition. In pot-limit Omaha big bets can appear out of nowhere, thereby providing skilful players with the opportunity to apply pressure with bold bluffs and counter-bluffs.
This book will be of tremendous value to anyone looking to improve their understanding of this exciting game. The material is presented in a novel ‘test-yourself’ format, which simulates live-action play by enabling readers to select the best course of action at each stage of a complete hand. They are then invited to compare their play with that of the experts, and assess their results through a unique scoring system.
