Some times the hands you see in Omaha h/l are unreal.
Try to play in six seat tables, instead of nine or ten, cause you have way more callers there
more often.
And if you play often this game try getting some notes on the players.
It helps since not many playing this game and you see often the same players.

Tend to lean towards mucking my straights and flushes when the board pairs, especially when the betting starts to get heavy. In H/L it can be harder becoz someone with the nut low can jam the pot,
leaving those with the high hand to make tougher decisions. The thing about PLO for me is more people tend to limp and/or call raises as well as play on to the river. In cash games tend to play 6 max over FR..the probabilities seem to be better. Tried H/L...don't like it much...find the variance higher.

Agree here ... when hitting a str in omaha with no FH or flush possible there are 2 options :

1 / max raise and let them pay for their chance to make a flush or fh

2 / check and try to get to the river as cheap as possible, when ther s no pair and no 3 Spade Club Heart Diamond on the' table , raise and take the money, otherwise better fold versus bets, mostly they have hiit a FH or a flush

Just a little advice here with the Omaha games.
Try not to play at the same time both versions hi and h/l.
Cause after some time playing and with the clock running for your moves,
I have paid a couple of times pot chasing low in a Hi game lol.

photolong, welcome to PLO my friend haha

Even if i do not play hi low the type of hands you saw are pretty common, well true, they do not come one after another but in just a session on a bad day you usually get those type of hands.

Fot the Hi/lo game.... a lot of variance there

If chasing the low always watch out for the split pot

pot with 3 players : lo is split in 2, hi 1 winner

when you had the best lo hand you loose money.... so do not go crazy with it.

or with 2 players : lo hand is split pot and you loose the high , this means 25 % loss

I have to agree with you on all points. I have mostly played PLO HI with a little H/L, and it is unreal the amount of times a straight gets rivered by flush or full house.

Well thefly131 since i mostly play Omaha h/l i have seen so far almost all the possible combinations
in terms of winnings and splits.
While most of the times it happens that the pots splits in low and in more than one
players, i have seen low caller winning the 50% and the rest three players splitting the high Smile
