Tips to make Pot-Limit Omaha earnings increase

Winning at poker is fun; winning big at poker is more fun

Winning big money in Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) can become a difficult task, especially if you are just getting started in this poker variant. Having strategies at hand will always be an important key to success since from this, you can overcome your opponents. There are many PLO pros out there today, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they have their strategy notebook full, which is why learning the following strategies could give you a big advantage over them and will undoubtedly be a great tool to fill your pockets even more.

First of all, never overestimate your hand in this game. Keep in mind that, compared to Texas Hold’em, the two additional hole cards in PLO are general leverage to strengthen the average hand, so don’t assume that a hand that is strong in Texas Hold’em will also be strong in PLO.

Whatever the situation, don’t get carried away and avoid playing small pairs. In PLO there is a very low chance of winning on the flop if you have a small pair in your possession. If you draw a set, the odds of being beaten by a larger hand increase exponentially, so if you have these hands, there is no reason to get excited in PLO.

Finally, never try to bluff your way through a hand. While it is true that bluffing in poker is a strategy (if applied correctly) that can work wonders, this technique really isn’t that effective in POL. Players in this game tend to use the strength of their hands, so bluffing won’t be enough to stop them.
