Guys, need an advice. I studied positional summary in my PT3, and was distressed with how much i've lost from BB. No blind protection is the greatest leak for me foe sure, and I guess some of you noticed and used it at the tables. But if we are a community, could you give me any general advices on blind protection in Omaha? Whom should i read as well?

I don't know alot about PLO, but I know im hold'em, the blinds are 2 positions you'll always lose money in. Since you're in the worst position, and already invested money before the hand even starts, your definitely going to lose some in the long run.
Blinds are basically part of your red-line, which is non-showdown winnings. While you CAN work on minimizing your losses in the blinds, ie: by 3-betting loose CO raises when it's folded around, or possibly by outplaying weaker opponents pre and post flop, you're still going to see negative from the blinds.

I can only speak about NL and SNG/MTT, for me blindprotection is so overrated, i rather steal then protect, with blinds low blind protection is so overrated imho. But i guess your question was about PLO cash, not into that but must be the same as in cash NL imo.
