also, the hand converters should absolutely be included in the sticky.

only O8 converter that works with full tilt still [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Wikipedia Omaha Probability
Not a thread, but useful, and a good place to confirm your calculations for many of the commonplace questions.

Hi,

Last night, a player complained about the irrationalty of preflop raising at a .25/.50 table. He wrote something like that: "Why are you guys raising preflop? This is omaha not holdem".

So I decided to add links to the threads where one of the most puzzling aspects of the game had been discussed:


Limit o8- to raise or not to raise preflop with big, little hands

Preflop Raising Shorthanded

Push vs Pull

Limit O8 Raising Preflop in Tournaments

Heads-up LO8 Preflop Play

Push or Pull, Loved or Feared

Hi Jay - Thanks for a job well done.

I like the topic your selected (pre-flop raising) and also the threads you selected.

It's still not clear in my mind how to handle this, how to decide which threads should be included in the sticky. It seems like all of us who participate in this forum should have a say, an equal vote, as to which threads should be included.

I think maybe we continue to get suggestions as to topics and also as to threads or individual posts, and then somehow throw it open for a vote. I don't have a deadline, but maybe we should tentatively plan to be largely finished in a month or two. (We should still be able to add threads or posts later, but it would be nice to have some closure.

Thanks to everybody who is thinking about this issue.

Buzz
