New to PLO
I’ve been playing NLHE for a long time, but have never tried any other game. PLO is almost always being offered where I play. I know nothing about it, but have heard that the 1/2 game plays a lot bigger than NLHE. If that is the case, I’m wondering if PLO would be a better game to short stack than NLHE (which is what I would want to do, just starting out).
I’m very familiar with Ed Miller’s short stack game from his early book. Would the same approach apply to PLO, and if so, is there any book on the market that would lay it out, with starting hands recommended for the various positions?
The PLO game offered at my local casino is 1/2, Mandatory Straddle, which would be a 1/2/5 game. The buy-in minimum is $200, so that would be 40BB stack- close enough to play it like a true short stack.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this, or know of any books that deal with it?
