    Hey some great content in this vid. I would like to add a plo session in once a week if I play Saturday nights as that’s the only night they spread the game as I normally play mon-fri.
    They spread $5/$5 plo and I joined the game. There was one other strong plo player that i have battled with on $1/2 plo PPPoker in the past but other than that it was $2/5 & $5/$5 rec Holdem players. Against this line up I feel I have and edge even thou I play mostly Holdem.
    But one dynamic that is so true in this game. It’s a 10 handed game and honestly it would average 7 to a flop. The field would limp and someone later to act might make it $30 and at least 5 would call. There is no thing of positional awareness. Some of those player would have stacks from 20-40bb as they buy I short and bleed money and just call. Then you come to show down and see what they are calling with hahaha fuck me they really haven’t taken any time to try and understand the game they are just playing their 4 cards on the flop. The mind set is great as they they think I can’t fold pre look at my hand and it’s some 3 to a suit with gaps everywhere.
    I have watched so many of the previous plo videos and keen for this series and your views on playing these games with 5+ players to a flop and how you navigate your way to victory.

    I never really got any traction last night the most I was up was $200. In the end I was in for $1.7k and cashed out $1.6k. The other player I mention was good built his stack up to $4k and was looking like the big winner but his style was loose pre, seeing flops then just hit and was able to extract value when they miss or continue to light.

    Keep up the good content

    Thanks @OMGitsWorm I'm happy you enjoyed the video. I've heard similar things from people on here or on Discord regarding the material.

    One thing I've found to be very true after switching to PLO cash pretty exclusivley in the last couple of years is that once you have a firm grasp of the game, put in a number of hours, and begin to understand your opponents, you are able to open up your preflop ranges a little bit and exploit the rec players post-flop. This is b/c you've mastered hand reading, and also have a fold button in spots where other players do not.

    To get to this point though, you need to firm up your foundation. So this series will concentrate on doing that, and then building off of the concepts so that your decision tree and confidence in your game is expanded.

    GL and keep playing that game! Sounds like a great spot.

    Thanks @TerpHimself I honestly enjoy theory of the game. When played live the table has a total different atmosphere than a live Holdem game. But for me to play more plo I have to go to home games and one was raided last year and I was there lol. So I kinda just stick to the casino atm.
