5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 12 Feb 2010
Format:Paperback
This is a great book to enter the world of omaha, it contains all the infos you need to be successful. Beware it's not for absolute beginners, you need to know basic concepts like pot odds, implied odds and so on.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great intro to Omaha 6 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback
I'm a big fan of this book and there are a lot of good things to say about it:

- It's well written, accessible and an easy read. The type of book you could read in a couple of sittings if you felt like it.
- Hwang assumes no pre-knowledge of Omaha and he takes you through the basics step by step
- Having covered the basics, he follows up with a very decent coverage of how to play the full ring pot limit game
- He also includes short but excellent chapters on limit and pot limit Omaha hi low.
- There is good and appropriate use of humour throughout. The personal stories including his bad beats and unsuccessful excersions to nose bleed hi low games are nicely done.

Reservations?

- A good book for low stakes full ring. If you want to move up the levels, you'll need to read Slotboom, plus look at some training videos
- Equally, don't expect the plays in this book to work at 6-max (as Hwang admits)
- Finally, on the hi-low limit game, Hwang's recommendations are a bit too aggressive for my liking. I'm not convinced his limit game is a winning one. But I guess he's the nosebleed player, not me.....

Overall: Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The beginning of PL-Omaha Know-How 5 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Before getting through Omaha advanced knowledge, this book is a must for everyone that wants to "change" from the traditional Texas Hold'em into a totally different kind of poker level.

Somehow, you'll need to have some poker-basis know-how and then apply the specificity of Omaha.

The reading is very fluid and motivates the reader to understand and play carefully and wisely on the tables.

As a basic volume, this book is a must before going to Advanced Omaha Books also from Jeff Hwang.

5.0 out of 5 stars Agreed, a great Omaha introduction tool 31 July 2010
Format:Paperback
This book not only explains all the necessary rules, starting hand and post-flop stategy needed to be a competant Omaha player, but the 'Big Play' aspect allows players to tighten their game to a degree that Omaha competancy can be reached almost overnight! A vital read, virtually the 'bible' of pot limit omaha at the moment - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for ALL 4-card poker entusiasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars PLO - The Big Play Strategy 16 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback
An excellent read. It covers in depth the basic concepts of PLO play in a clear and concise fashion that is easy to read. It covers both pre and post flop play and gives plenty of examples to illustrate the author`s points. As a relative novice to the game I found it very useful. I will definitely be purchasing Jeff`s other books on PLO in the near future. The book also talks about fixed limit and pot limit omaha hi/lo but I have yet to read these sections.
