The worst thing about PLO is when you're playing it regularly you won't be able to play Holdem. Cause simply you don't have the patience to wait for good hands, It is also very different in terms of odds so it's better to stick with PLO
im a little late to the party, but i really liked your thoughts about PLO. someone might think this is sponsored to get more people to cash into poker sites. which it isnt, i read a lot of great strategy articles to know that :)
but i really had trouble following at 1.0 video, i had to turn you down to 0.75 to be able to follow.
I mean I really feel your passion, it makes your talking and thinking so quick i couldnt handle it.
maybe watch it yourself at that speed, it really sounds how normals speed should sound like - imo.
gl at the tables, and thanks for the great video
Shit the equities are tricky in Omaha.
By the way, any tip on working out Equity quickly in Hold 'Em? The 2/4 rule with improvements is really good but still I find it slow (for multitabling anyway). How do the Pros do it? Do you memorize situational tables like Flush Draw on the Flop vs Set. Thank you.
When it comes to the 2 most premium hands in Omaha, I prefer the AAJ10 double suited over the AAKK double suited. And the reason is, with the AAKK, you can only make 1 straight, unlike the AAJ10, which can make 4. As Daniel mentioned, you wanna make straights and flushes in this game. A lot of flops in this game are gonna contain middle connecting cards, so I think its much more valuable to have the J10 in those situations, than the aces and kings. This is my own preference though.
i dont really understand why you would want a run. if you can only use 2 cards from your hand, arent you blocking yourself with a run? wouldnt you rather have 2 of the cards in the run in the deck to help make your hand?
Because when you hit flops, you hit them hard and can flop hands that give you a ton of equity. For example 789T if the flop comes 782 you have top two AND and open ended straight draw. or even a T93 flop and you have TJQK
prolly the best analysis of plo I've seen! thanks brah! you should come back for plo prt2 and 3 and 4... I would watch and re watch. plus you said Phill taught you the game! how much better can this get? ... today's guest phil ivey!!! or @joeingram1!!!
My favorite thing about PLO are the instances when folding the nuts is actually the right play.
You get to check the BB with AJ67 no suits; flop is 589 with two spades. You check, first player bets pot, second player re-pots, and another player calls. Just fold the nuts.
If you're up against a set and a flush draw you're an equity dog, and there's such a huge chance you're already drawing only to a chop you just get out. I made basically that fold once at a home game, showing one of my buddies as I folded it. Dude thought I was crazy until the turn when it got all-in and someone had flopped the same straight with the nut flush draw.
Why is Daniel Negreanu seen as a great poker player when he has only for the last two years had around 500,000 thousand dollars in tournament winnings. While fedor holz and Brian Rast totally outperform him. Is Daniel not going to tournaments on purpose so these statistics arent relevant or his he no longer a good player?
game has evolved... fields are substantially larger as well, making deep runs tougher.
he's still a solid tournament player. finished 11th in the 2015 WSOP Main (out of 6700ish) and the year before I believe he finished 2nd in a $1 million dollar buyin and took 7 million for the cash.
He's doing just fine for his specialty. I wouldn't call him a elite cash player though.
Robby S, No, they don't take hair from you lower back. They almost always take hair from the back of your head (where hair growth is much thicker) in a very wide and symmetrical pattern, which won't be noticeable afterwards (pretty much).
Daniel will you please play the Vlogers Poker Tourney/Game? This would be awesome if you participate in it! Everyone Encourage Daniel to play this. If you don't know about it check out Andrew Neeme's channel
I think what he was doing was clearing his throat possibly due to PND (post nasal drip) or an allergic reaction caused by certain medicine or just a simple sinus infection making him continue to clear his throat regularly ever few spoken words so he doesn't choke on his own mucus while talking...taking an educated guess here since i know people with similar symptoms that do the same thing, Daniel i would suggest(if not done already) to see an ENT(ears nose throat) specialist and have it checked, those are your immediate outs...and you can research Neti Pot(for sinus infections or PND) treatments....FIRST THING FIRST THO....ENT specialist!! Hope this helps to answer your question Pablo for 2 reasons, 1. answer you question :) and 2. possibly help others suffering or going through the aggravation(which it can be for some)... good luck!!
Sure it's not nice, but it's not illegal. It's a free country and Daniel can choose to do whatever the hell he wants to just as you and I can. It's both a good thing and bad thing about America, you have the freedom to do basically whatever you want to do.
@4:10. Not technically true. Bad aces (AA52 rainbow) are actually behind great rundowns (in this example 6-9, 7-10 and 8-J double suited) preflop. That being said you are never folding because even if they showed you that hand you'd be getting the right odds it's so close.
I just made a organic transition to PLO it came naturally I could never find a good book or strategy guide I just kinda understood the odds better than most I'm not a pro by any means but I'm a solid player what are some ways I can take my game to the next level any recommendations??? Or just keep playing and seeing hands and learn from experience??
An organic transition An not A. A is used when the following word begins with a consonant. An is proper when the word following begins with a vowel. I remember this stuff from 1st grade THROUGH undergrad language classes. Also for anyone who cares, and this shit grates my nerves, the proper use of "than" and not "then". In a comparison statement the word "than" is correct. The word "then" is time consequential.
John Smith people leaving comments on a video doesn't mean he is responsible for a poker boom. I would bet that people get into poker more from actual poker hands on YouTube. I have never played poker, but Doug Polk did not get me interested in it. Watching Negreanu hands and other pros got me interested in poker.
You're clearly clueless about youtube poker in the last year and particularly Doug's channel. There have been a bunch of comments on his vids from casuals. I remember one with 200+ upvotes saying "I never played a hand of holdem in my life but I can't stop watching these."
There was a whole thing where his vids were getting tons of downvotes because newcomers expected to see hands without his interruptions and it took time until they realised it's educational content and started upvoting.
Hard "data" is in Doug's demographics and only he has access to that so you can ask him, this is enough evidence for anyone with half a brain to realise Doug by far did the most to spread poker during the last year. I mean you really think the 80k subs he racked up in a year are all hardened poker pros and dweebs from 2p2 and reddit? Give me a break dude.
Dumbest fucking comment ever.. If you're really interested in poker wouldn't you want insight from many different outlets instead of from just one person? You act like because Daniel is making videos that it means Doug's go away. They don't. You can watch them whenever you want. I personally enjoy them both.. And don't act like Doug was the first person to make a poker strategy video. Come on dude..
Watched the 5 hour high stakes game just recently with Tony G, Gus Hanson and the infamous Krocodile. lol. I always associated 'pot limit' with 'limit hold em' so I never really gave it much thought. After watching PLO, I think I'd like to give it a shot.
