Jan 02, Eugene Tung rated it it was amazing. This book was a good read. Aug 22, Raphael Clayette rated it it was amazing Shelves: I only did read the omaha Hi part, but it was great. I can believe this is the best beginner PLO book. I will read his other PLO books 3 volumes.

In that sentence alone you can tell how outdated this book is; that is, if you were to read it in a literal way. However, if you’re a NLH player who’s completely new to PLO, then I recommend reading at least the first half of this book with an open mind.


Hwang does a fantastic job introducing us noobs to the types and relative strength of PLO starting hands, he’s very thorough when it comes to that, and that alone will sa Keep in mind that this book was written by and for PLO 9 handed LIVE games. Hwang does a fantastic job introducing us noobs to the types and relative strength of PLO starting hands, he’s very thorough when it comes to that, and that alone will save you a lot of money when you start to play PLO online.

Never forget that people play PLO because they get tired of missing every flop in that boring game called NLH, and because it’s fun to have 4 cards, yo. Great book Very easy to understand and very helpful in understanding how important the fundamentals are.

I wish it went into more detail or examples of playing medium strength hands. Overall a very good book. Dec 13, Pedro Silva rated it really liked it. The basic strategy, odds calculation and gameplay changes a lot from NLH. Great notions about the main differences about the variants and the “changing gears” you should be prepared to approach both games. Jul 03, Will Sisco rated it really liked it. Surprisingly relevant despite its age. I feel like this book alone is enough to beat low stakes live PLO.

Aug 05, Robert Beveridge rated it really liked it Recommends it for: It’s second only to Cincinnati as my favorite poker variant and no one plays Cincinnati anymore, not even in Europeand I play Omaha and Omaha-split tournaments whenever I can.

I’ve read a few books on the game over the years, but none of them has ever been comprehensive until now. The Big Play Strategy attempts to teach the reader how to minimize the variance as much as possible, anyway, in a game where edges are often razor-thin at best when the money goes inplay tighter, and show a long-term profit.

If you’ve played Omaha with an eye towards making money at it, but never actually done an in-depth study of the game, it’s quite likely you’re going to find the codification of a lot of concepts you’ve always suspected, but never really had the data to back up e.

Hwang actually addresses why a one-gapped rundown is better in certain situations than a rundown.

Book Review: Pot Limit Omaha Poker – Thinking Poker

I never thought I’d see that. To be fair, I’d only recently started wondering about that. And really, it’s hard to resist a book that tell you that the easiest money to be made in the poker world is hsang the limit Omaha-split table If you’re going to play Omaha, you need this book.

Sep 29, Yves rated it liked it Shelves: Deep and insightful, this technical book is required to ,imit read twice to really get the practical elements of PL Omaha Hi play.


I had to lmiit it again. Absolutely NOT a book for beginners and in fact, a beginner applying these techniques would lose a lot of money because you have to have the long-time playing discipline to put those bluff bets out there. Beginners will not and when they do, face the problem of just being called.
