Lou Krieger
"Lucid, literate, and comprehensive. Dissects the complexities of this game and explains why big play strategy is the winning strategy."

Are You Ready for the Next Wave of Poker?
If you've never tried Pot-Limit Omaha, you're missing out on the most exciting, most lucrative cash game around. Omaha has long been one of the most popular forms of poker in Europe, as well as the Midwest and Southern United States. PLO is also the highest-stakes game in every cardroom in which the game is spread. And now it's spreading like wildfire throughout North America. The reason is simple: Omaha offers more action and bigger pots than Texas Hold'em. Isn't it time you got in on it?

Whether you're a cash-game professional or a recreational player -- and whether you play live or online -- this book will arm you with a winning big-play strategy that's easy to master even if you've never played Omaha before.

Key topics include:

- The Big Play Objectives
- The Power of the Big Draw
- Straight Draws and Starting Hand Construction
- Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo

Complete with practice situations and hand quizzes, this is the most comprehensive Omaha book available -- and the only one you'll ever need.

From the Back Cover

Pot-Limit Omaha is the next big trend in poker. It is by far the biggest cash game in every casino where it is played. The only thing holding it back from going mainstream is that players have no idea where to start. They don't know how to think about the game in general, and starting hands in particular. In Pot-Limit Omaha literature, everybody knows that AAKK and AAJT double-suited are the best hands, and that a rundown like JT98 double-suited is nice; but NOBODY explains what else is playable, and more importantly why. If players knew where to start, then EVERYBODY would play Pot-Limit Omaha, because it is simply the most exciting and action packed game in poker. It is also the highest stakes poker game in every card room in which the game is spread.

POT-LIMIT OMAHA by Jeff Hwang is the most thorough discussion of the game ever published, and the only one to talk about starting hand construction, as opposed to the vague "the best hands to play" line given in every other book. It provides readers with a big-play strategy centered around straight draws and nut flush draws, as well as a basic understanding of post-flop play. The book includes sections on Limit Omaha Hi/Lo and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi/Lo (this is the only book in the market that discusses these games).

Jeff Hwang has established a concerted strategy aimed at winning the big pots, while using positional advantage to pick up pots (not necessarily on the flop) when the money is not all in. Hwang has sought to change the way the average Omaha player thinks about starting hands, as well as the game of PLO itself, by concentrating on the Big Play Objectives: the nut straight freeroll, the nut full house freeroll, set-over-set, flush-over-flush, overfull vs. underfull, top-set plus draws, and dominating draws.

Includes sample hands, practice situations and hand quizzes.
