Default Live PLO Omaha differences

I was thinking about playing my first live PLO Omaha game tomorrow. Are there any differences I should be aware of in playing style between the micro online stakes and the live people?

Thanks!

Live players in cash games limp any4, pot either any4 or only AAxx (you can tell who is who within a couple orbits) and generally overplay NLHE hands containing AAxx/KKxx/QQxx etc

Most have no regard for position other than some players pot any4 on the button

Most importantly, they are completely horrible (I was approached during the 1100 PLO tourney @ AM by a player who I had been outplaying and told I would be on of the best players at 10/20PLO and 25/50PLO and he would like to stake me to play those games sometime, i'm not particularly good at PLO by online standards)

So yeah they suck, pwn their souls, win their money

Low hands/hour though but the bb/100 you can win is ridiculously high.

Keep in mind that if you are in a cardroom where the fish can choose NLHE you can expect the level of play in the PLO game to be a little better relatively speaking.

Don't try to outplay them, make a hand and get paid.

Make them pay to draw and don't pussyfoot about it.

When the passive player bets he has a hand, you need only to decide if he knows what he has.

Position, position, position.

Good luck.

So, I'm thinking that early on, I need to play extra tight until I get a good read on who pots the nuts and who pots for no apparent reason. Then just use my position to my advantage and adjust opening hands accordingly. And I won't get too attached to anything vulnerable without redraws to the nuts.

I think the thing I'm worried about is when I have the current nuts with no redraws OOP and I get repotted. Those sorts of things can make a bank roll swing like crazy.

The card room does have NLHE, so maybe the players won't be total morons.

Stick your money live plo players at 1/2 or 2/5 will show up with garbage like bottom2 when you have top set often enough that you cant fold just to lower variance.

Other than that your idea is right play tight early then isolate the fish when you're in position and outplay them postflop

basically most Omaha live players are terrible in Australia and you just hope not to run into Annette at a final table because she runs good.

America could be entirely different. i think Australia's NLHE culture is soooo strong that all other forms of poker are pretty foreign but casino gamblers will sit down anyway and donk money.

Americans are more used to games other than NLHE so maybe it won't be as retarded.

The omaha game ended up not getting started, so I just ran bad in NLHE and made just about minimum wage - $28 over 4 hours and damn glad when it was all said and done considering I was down just about the entire time. I was on monkey tilt one hand with AJ and reraised AI for about 20 BB, I got called by two people and somehow won it with ace high. Ahhhh, live players.

If your goal is to make money I'd suggest you stick to NLHE live simply because your edge is probaby going to be about the same but there is less variance.

Online is imo the opposite in that there is still more variance in Omaha but the player pool online is much weaker than you will see in Holdem games.

In either case you will need a bankroll and learn to play deep.
