So I haven’t updated my blog here for a little bit so I thought I’d give you all a little bit of an update and also introduce my new feature “It’s a Wrap” – a new series of articles and videos I will be making on the great game of Pot Limit Omaha.

I’m still matched betting to make some easy risk free money per month from the bookies, but I have been doing this on a smaller scale recently and my passions have returned once again to online poker.

I spent some time playing on Sky Poker playing the small stakes No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha games from £20 to £30 buy-ins to some success and seemed to transition more and more to just solely playing PLO.

I’m really enjoying playing PLO at the moment. I must admit though that I have a lot to learn and re-learn as the last time I seriously played Omaha was back in 2010!

However – I found that the traffic on Sky for PLO was quite bad for the times I wanted to play, so I have decided to move back over to Pokerstars despite the poor rewards scheme there and will play as much PLO zoom as I can while intending to study pot limit omaha as much as I can.

The reason I have done this, is because I will be playing PLO Zoom. If I play 3 tables of PLO Zoom (which is about my limit, although I can play 4 tables of zoom but 3 is just a bit more calmer!) I can get in much more hands at pretty much any time I want to play around the clock which will suit my lifestyle and commitments at the moment.

There’s also the added benefit that by playing Zoom, although it is tighter play than normal ring-game tables, it allows me to play much more hands in a much quicker timescale which is ideal at the moment as I’m learning the game from the ground up – but the more hands I play should help me to learn PLO much faster.

PLO Bankroll challenge

My bankroll challenge is to start at $10PLO Zoom on Pokerstars with a $400 bankroll – which constitutes a total of 40 buy-ins for the limit.

When I hit $750 I will move up to $25PLO Zoom and take a 10 buy in shot at that level with 30 buy-ins. If things don’t go well at $25 Zoom I will move down again to $10 PLOz if I drop below a bankroll of $500.

I will then move up to $50PLOz Zoom once I hit $1,750 – 35 buy-ins for the limit – and move down should I fall below $1,250.

If things zip along nicely at PLO50z, my plan is to move up to 100PLOz once I hit 40 buy-ins for the new level, which will be a roll of $4,000 with the aims to drop back down to PLO50z should I fall below $3,000.

This bankroll approach is quite aggressive for PLO, but is staggered to increase the amount of buy-in’s needed as we progress up the levels.

I’m not sure how long it will take to reach PLO100z but wish me luck!

Along the way I’ll be sharing my journey, my learning methods, my up’s and down’s and will be posting hands and making videos.

To start us off with, this is a PLO Video of a hand that I should have folded pre flop, out of position in the small-blind – even to a late position button open from a fish. We have great equity on the flop against the squeezers range but end up being seriously behind, and sucking out on the river, the great game of Pot Limit Omaha eh!
