some omaha (&HL) questions
 
never seem to like omaha but really like O8. partially because it seems like people don't know how to play the low (include myself for now). and i'll think i'll learn omaha high too as i'm at it.

anyway... wondering the following:

is omaha HL (or even omaha high) regularly played anywhere in vegas?

is Omaha HL almost always limit? cash vs. tourney?? .... i see alot of PLO, but i think that's omaha high.

should probably ask this in internet poker, but is O8 or Ohigh more popular?

thanks in advance!!!!

PLO8 is not commonly spread live.

small stakes fixed limit O8 is the only popular version in the US. Generally you won't find stakes beyond 10/20 (and thats high) outside of mixed games.

PLO high is popular in Europe.

Online PLO high and 8 or better are both popular.

PLO (High only) is the biggest game on the Boat at Caesar's IN. It goes on Wednesdays and Fridays. Amazing as it may seem, during the recent WSOP Circuit Event, They spread PLO8 with $1-2 blinds.

If you are here in Indiana, Argosy Casino in Lawrenceburg spreads $5-10 O/8 with a full kill on Wednesdays. I try to play in this game every Wednesday but the drive is really getting old. I haven't been all summer so my information is stale but Casino Aztar in Evansville spreads $10-20 O/8 with a half kill on Tuesdays.

The Mirage in Vegas spreads a pretty regular 5/10 O8b game, and if you get the right time/table, you can crush that game. The Orleans is the only casino in Vegas that I know that runs a weekly Omaha H/L Tourney, so check them out too.

For my local cardroom, Mountaineer spreads a 3/6 H/L game with a full kill, which isn't a bad game, either. Sometimes they bump it to a 5/10 game, too.

PLO is a tough game to play because of the swings. It's not like Hold em, where you can be a 4:1 favorite in a hand... There just are too many draws to beat you, which is why a hand like AAKK Double Suited is STILL not a monster favorite over a hand like 8-9-10-J Double Suited... You can lose a lot of money there if people start getting out on you. A lot of places that run a steady PLO game have a pot-cap to protect the players from going broke on what typically amounts to nothing more than a coinflip.

Omaha H/L is probably my favorite game to play live, and I'm under the age of 30... Which obviously makes me the exception.

Of the varieties of Omaha, I like Pot Limit Omaha Hi the best.

Riverwind just south of Norman OK has PLO.

Binion's has one weekend every month(I want to say its the second weekend, but I'm not sure) where its "omaha weekend." Friday, Saturday, and Sunday they run a PLO tourney, PLO8 tourney, and limit o8 tourney. Side games can sometimes be found during these times as well as people bust out.

I said commonly...

Is that how much you've taken it for, since it went down between posts?

I'm sure I'd love to play PLO8 live if I had a real bankroll, but I might also throw up a few times.

I feel your pain.
Stud is my favorite game to play live and I'm under 40.
