I played my first Pot Limit Omaha session at Motorcity a few days ago. I’ve been playing low stakes PLO online with Michael giving pointers, so I’ve picked up most of the basics, but I was still nervous to jump into live. For one thing, physically looking at and then remembering four cards isn’t easy. But my options were either that or 1/2 NL, which is incredibly miserable, so I went for it. It seemed like the kind of game I could beat by only playing the nuts, and that was pretty much what happened. I opened AQJT under the gun, got a million callers, and flopped the nuts on KQJ. I potted and got one caller. The turn didn’t change the nuts and I shoved all-in. He tanked and called it off and I held up. Fun game.
