Two sessions in, PLO is looking to be very, very profitable. There are various kinds of advantages you can have going to the flop: 1. Hand strength – you start with better cards. 2. Position – you act after your opponent. You’ll have additional information to work with on every street. 3. Initiative – you were the pre-flop aggressor. You’ll win much more often when neither player has a strong hand. 4. Skill – you make better decisions than your opponent.
The guys who are playing PLO right now are willing to cede ALL FOUR advantages in ANY HAND. I mean, they’re not good at hold’em either, but this is something else.
