There’s more to the world of poker than just Texas Hold’em, despite what you might think from watching poker on TV. In this beginner poker strategy video series we show you exactly what you need to know to make the jump from Texas Hold’em to Pot-Limit Omaha, without losing your bankroll.

A lot of the skills you learned playing Hold’em definitely apply to PLO but there are a few key differences, the biggest being that you get four hole cards instead of two, and the game is played pot-limit instead of no-limit. If any of that seems intimidating to you now, don’t worry. We’re going to break it down step by step to make sure you don’t miss a thing. In the first episode of How Not to Suck at PLO we run through why getting four hole cards makes such a big difference, and the adjustments you need to make compared to playing Texas Hold’em.

Since everyone gets four hole cards, big hands are way more common in PLO than in Texas Hold’em. That’s why it’s really important to play strong hands and not set yourself up to get coolered when you’re putting in lots of chips with the second or third best hand. We talk through how to read hands in Omaha since you have to use exactly two of your hole cards and we also explain how to play pot-limit and give you a clever trick that makes calculating pot bets and raises really simple.

Watch the first video in this beginner PLO strategy series and keep an eye out for four more installments in the series, coming soon.
