Winning at Zoom poker

Saturday, March 16th, 2013

To win at Zoom or Rush poker I’ve always heard ‘play tight’. I’m normally a TAG player anyway so I didn’t think it was necessary to tighten up much more. But recently I took on a challenge. I was given a $25 stake to play 0.01/0.02 Zoom PLO. I’ve only been learning PLO and had […]

Fear of raising preflop; Pot Limit Omaha

Thursday, January 22nd, 2009

Another one of the benefits of playing a “new” game as I am with PLO is going through the developmental process over again. Some time ago I did a “Fear of Raising” series where I looked at various reasons why we poker players can be hesitant to raise. Playing PLO I’m re-experiencing fear of raising […]

Let’s try some Omaha, PLO

Monday, May 26th, 2008

Every post is not going to be brilliantly educational or philosophical, I guess. I do wish WordPress had a better method for indexing and summarizing posts. It would be nice if people, including myself, could click on an index, see everything listed, sort it by category, and see the first line or two. I can […]
