Welcome to Pot Limit Omaha!

After weeks of thinking about it and saying i want to play it, I finally played a few hands today. I'm not sure how many because PT is only for hold'em. But the game is so easy. Make nuts and get it AI. Thats it!
And when i say nuts i mean the absolute nuts or very close to it. Drawing to 2nd nut hands seem a sure path to variance hell.

n e way i was at the office and decided to go on stars and give it ago... actually i came across a plo vid on CR then decided to go on PS... I sat down with 30.00 on a 50nl and max buyin @ 25nl.

1st Hand Sweet! This is a very strong starting hand in Omaha. TP + 2 nut flush draws... and a lil deeper; the Kh & Kc are still out there for someone to drw to the 2nd nuts. Perfect!

Good lay down? I think so.This is a nice hand to try to see a flop cheaply with... but facing a raise i could easily bet set over setted or be drawing to the non nut flush.

In an estimated 60 hands i more than doubled by bankroll on pokerstars; from just 61.00 to 169.00... could be just variance but i'm in love with omaha!

Poker Tracker do an Omaha version if you start to play more, not sure if they give a discount if you already have the Holdem version, fire Pat an email he's a pretty good guy.

Also, I've toyed with the idea of Omaha for a while now but the swings can be huge apparently, you're hardly ever more than a 60/40 favourite on any hand!
