Limit O/8

Going to be teaching my mom Limit O/8 starting next week. She has played limit Holdem for about 20 years, plays 20-40 and is a winning player. She likes to learn by reading, are there any good Limit O/8 book that I can have her read along with the sessions that we have? Also I have arranged with 7 competent O/8 players to play 3 three hour 1-2 limit sessions to help her get used to having to play 2 and looking for the low and they have agreed to allow me to coach her during play for the first session. Also are there any good beginner O/8 web based info?

    It's old, but I really like "How to win at Omaha High-Low Poker" by Cappelletti.

    The LO8 chapter in Hwang's first Omaha book is succinct. If you're ever considering playing PLO you could pick that up.

    Like TGK posted Cappellettis How To Win @ Omaha High-Low Poker is one of the oldie but goodie books out there on the 8 or better variant of Omaha. For myself I started out by reading Steve Badgers website I met Steve or Lunch Time Steve as he was know at The Bicycle Club in Bell Gardens CA when I got my start in poker before the televised poker boom. The 08 articles on his website are imo good for a hold-em player transitioning to O8. During this time I also read Ray Zees Books on Split Pot Games.

    Zee's book is good and if you ever want to play Stud-8 as well it's an obvious buy.
