Preflop Hand Ranges

The first decision you face at any PL Omaha table will be your preflop move. This article shows you exactly when and why to play specific poker hands in specific situations at Pot Limit Omaha cash tables.

Double Paired Hands

Double paired hands are some of the strongest preflop hands in Omaha, but many players lose a ton of money by overplaying double-paired hands later in the hand. Learn the proper way to handle big double paired hands.

Relative Hand Strength

Relative hand strength is one of the fundamental topics for any winning Omaha strategy. Learn why huge hands might have little value in certain pots, or why small hands might have huge value in other pots.

Straights and Sets

Deceptive Strength

The rules of Omaha create more monster hands than the rules of Texas Hold'em. Because of that, Texas Hold'em to Omaha converts need to realize that many hands have deceptive strength, and aren't strong at all.
