Solid Omaha High/Low Advice,
This review is from: Poker Omaha Intermediate (Paperback)
Andy Nelson is a proven poker author, strategist and winner.
This is his intermediate level book on the tricky strategies involved in Omaha high low split (8 or better) poker. Following on from his 'book one' beginners guide, this book concentrates on firstly winning hand selection then the texture of the flop, how it fits your hand and what to do next. How to maximise a winning position and when to recognize and release your hand in those situations where you have that very costly second-nut hand.
An excellent section on reading other players by their betting patterns and how to avoid getting involved for only one quarter of the pot.
Other sections include maximising your positional play and how to keep emotions in check so that you remain on your 'A game' while others crumble.
Once you've mastered the basics of Omaha high/Low this book will definitely help take you on to another level while avoiding bad (costly) habits such as playing hands which look good initially but quickly turn into trap hands on the flop.
My main criticism of the book would be that it is too short. However, there is a lot of down-to-business information packed in to it and no space is wasted on poker anecdotes and the like.
