What are people's thoughts on short stacking PLO? On whether or not it's worth it, effective tactics, hands to play, avoid, etc.
I have been beating $1/2 NLHE for $30+/hr for the last few years at my local casino. More recently they have been getting a consistent $5/5 PLO game (min $200 buy-in) which I've been playing. Most players buy in deeper and play very loose (sometimes crazy). Players range from some of the better players in town to total donks. For bankroll considerations, I buy in for the minimum, nit it up and try to find good spots to get it in (most players don't seem to adjust to a short-stack).
I was doing well until I've recently gone on a $11K down-swing ($200 at a time). I don't feel like I tilt and for the most part get it in as the favorite. Am I missing something? Should I stick to my game-plan and chalk this up to variance? Just looking for any useful advice. Thanks in advance!
