Pot limit omaha is the second about the traffic but is harder then texas holdem. Maybe nl draw? So which stakes do you play and what type of gamee ( sng, cash?) Gl. Thumbs Up

hi, i would recommend PLO. it is an excellent game but very fishy. you get 4 hole cards and board the same at Hold Em. but u can only use 2 cards from your hole cards and 3 from the board to make your best hand.

it is hard to start with but really great when you get into it.

good luck with whatever you delve into, its useful to know a couple of other type of games Thumbs Up

Poker they say is easy to learn, difficult to master. Learning the rules to omaha, stud or draw won't take long but learning the value of your hand, instinctively knowing when to call and getting to the point where you can make a decision without consulting a book/guide, that takes a long time and probably a lot of lost money.

I'd recommend trying out some freerolls. You won't get much of a taster for what it's like to play medium stakes or higher but you can get used to calculating the odds and get a feel for how often hands win.

I think the easiest to pick up after hold em is omaha but it is slightly harder to work out your odds and there is more variance also.

honestly you can learn the basics on all games.. but to become really good i would stick at one first.
You have lots of freerolls at stars with the 8 games so you can try them all easy without expenses.

All games are easy to learn and hard to master imo .. just try to be good at what you like most and feel you have the best understanding. If your talking about "easiest way to make money" .. many people consider it to be PLO .. and it probably is easier if you stay away from good regs.

y0.

Thank's guys for your support!

Like most of you have writtten i checked Pot Limit Omaha. It's nice to play because in Texas NL free players play all-in's with nothing in their hand :/

8-ball was nice but game Lowball finished me when i annouced what are the rules in my pocket was only 1k Disagree

I have one more question:

Are there (on the real money tables) players throw money like : all-in, all-in, before flop?

Sorry, for my bad language..
Best wishes!
Bless

First you have to learn the theory,the strategy and than start to play,at low stakes.Every type of poker is played different so you have to adapt.Even NL Holdem is playes different in SNG in low stakes,medium stakes or freerolls.So choose one and try to make money

Since you are a beginner my advice would be to start with no limit holdem and opt for micro cash games full ring or sng's Blink

Other types of poker are a bit more complicated but also have a higher variance so they aren't appropiate for a beginner.

Hej zukuLBW Smile

When I began to play, I started on freeroll to build bankroll a bit... then I fell in love with SnG DoubleUp, then after change, in Fifty50... it's pretty nice, because half of you got cash, not at the other tournament, when only small % got cash.
Of course, you must learn strategy, theory, etc. Then you may earn MILLIONS Smile

I'm not pro, but when you play a lot, you will learn a lot...

for a newbie the first thing to head is freerolls/play money tables- not to make money, but to have a feel for the games, how they are played, do you like them in general- plain fact is that any game can be profitable and any game can be unprofitable- it only depends form the person who is playing...there is no such poker form which would make a newbie profitable just by taking part in the game

I'm not thinking about making some big ca$h right now Smile But playing free tournaments, are full of jerks who throw all they chips, when they have lame hand.. I'm thinking that when people play even for a small amount of money, they'r doing it more responsibly, and that makes learning easier?

That's the most known game and also the one you can find more info about so i would say you should stick on it. you will find lots of info regarding Texas HE strategies and most of the advices and discussions you can find around here are about it. Omaha, 5Card, 2-7, are usually options for those who already know well how to play HE. Look at it as the begining of a journey.

No... playing in freerolls are like playing in micro-stakes - the same donk, the same all-in, the same stupid play... try it Blink

Way too high for a beginner. Because the variance is higher in omaha anyway, since the best hand is more likely to switch several times and draws hit a lot more often than in hold em. So you will need a very large bankroll to play decent games of PLO. You really have to start at the beginning.

You can play micro stakes and you will still get a lot of people who don't know what they are doing but for players who do know how to play omaha should be more profitable than hold em since the fish to skilled player ratio is far higher. My advice is to learn the basics and make a profit at micros before you move up but it won't be pretty, variance is a bitch and it won't be as fun if you can't use smart play to beat the donks.

holdem is a good way to start but you will find more better games in omaha....its easier than holdem and you will not worry about fish in here because they always get fried....also it better that you learn this 2 games at start and try other games later....also starting with SNG is a good experience....

Probably, depends on the room.
I can speak for Pokerstars. The adequate level of play starts from:

- NL100 in cash games
- 20$+ buy-in in sit&goes
- never in tournaments. It's because tournaments have sick amount of satellite-donkaments to them and more than half of the field is formed through them.

With no doubt the Omaha games both high and hi/lo.
Omaha along with Holdem is the game with the biggest player base.
Omaha hi/lo in micro stakes is a good chance for beginning players to make some money Smile gl
