Omaha is one of the most complex and at the same time one of the most popular forms of poker.

Preflop

 On the flop, even the strongest starting hand has no absolute advantage. Despite the fact that the odds ratio of a strong and mediocre before the opening of the flop is 60% to 40%, you should always consider the opportunity to raise. If such a move Hold'em helps knock out of the game the highest possible number of participants, in Omaha, it allows the bank to increase with fewer folds.

Main strong draw - this is the best flush draw. It draws "Generation M" - with the letter M begins the name of Ed Miller, author of the book "Hold'em at low stakes" - however, the players seem to go too far and announce bets, raises, three-bets, and even the last permitted raise with any flash-dro.

 

The best flush draw

A raise on the flop with a draw - this is really a good move, and under appropriate conditions almost exactly supposed to win for him is positive, but this is not always, and certainly not always exactly this move gives the highest result, even if the result is positive.

Recently, my results in poker and win rate was quite high, but I did not have much consistency in my game, especially in the days when I lose. I definitely exists a vicious circle when a bad game is associated with a sense of defeat, which in turn leads to the fact that I get distracted and start playing badly. I plan in the future somehow solve this problem and then go to class psychology of the game, but until that moment I decided to set myself a stop-loss order to reduce the amount of trouble in losing days.

 

When should I use a stop-loss

I remember once, about three years ago, at the very beginning of his career in poker, I set a stop-loss just because he hated to lose and did not want to take part in a game where my money goes somewhere (this is a rather strange approach as a natural reaction of most people in this situation - is the desire to play again, to regain the lost). In general, I started to feel bad, and I do not want to stay at the poker table. Now, when my level is very high, and I obviously win at any table (even if I do not play at his best level), the idea of ​​stop-loss itself seems silly, especially from the financial point of view (the more hours I play, the more money I get in the end). However, from the point of view of psychology, or the point of view of the 'alleged satisfaction "stop-loss can be very useful.
