To the No-Limit Hold Em variant of poker. Omaha is a ton of fun and all but jesus it makes my head spin and the longterm variance is pretty ridiculous. Seeing as I have been down swinging for about a year now I guess I gotta go back to what I know best and start making some cash money again. Also a huge factor was the state of Stars 6max games right now seem better than theyve been in a long time. Looking at my lifetime PLO graph is pretty hilarious and fairly tilting at how much Ive put into learning the game... Might as well post for some laughs



My thoughts on this graph



So easy to blame it on the PLO variance but I am clearly miles away from being a proven winner.. although I will most likely always play it to some extent when dealing with the crunch of paying for school and maintaining the cost of a house and gf (sometimes I dont know which costs more ) I feel like it is in my best interests to return to the game I know I can beat longterm.

So starting yesterday I dove back into the nit infested games of 1/2nl on stars and found them definitely to be better than normal.. A lot more fish per table and whatnot. After spewing off in the first hour or so I started playing slightly better but still rusty for sure. It will take a little time to get readjusted but hopefully shouldn't take too long




Not exactly what I had in mind when I started back but Im sure the NL gods of the pokerworld will be kinder in the future. Ive been playing a fair amount of live at Fallsview in Niagara Falls recently as well which has been actually fun somehow...And I am going to be headed to NAPT Mohegan Sun in early April so if anyone is headed there as well lemme know!

Im going to try and update this blog fairly frequently as it will probably hold me more accountable pokerwise. Enjoy!

EDIT

Friend of mine just sent me a variance simulator of my hands with my std deviation if I had a wr of 2bb/100 so ridiculous.

gl dood, can I msg you sometime if I am ever heading down to Fallsview? I have already talked to 'bullshit' marginally (do you ever play live with him there?).

I have learned from poker that being at the table is not a grind, the grind is living and poker is how I pass the time

Im quite surprised to see such a brutal graph I thought you were pretty solid when we played. Youll definitely crush NLHE tho, glgl

Long-term variance in PLO is a bitch. You may not think it can just be variance after 187k hands but in PLO it really can be. I've played very casually - about 2 hours a week - for the past 3 years at low stakes PLO. In that time I've played 254k hands and made 1.4k + 7k or so in FPP style RB. In that database I'm 100 buy-ins below my all-in EV with virtually all of the play at PLO .25/.50. If you run bad in 60/40's it's very difficult to win money at PLO in any level.
