just be quite tight, have hands that work both ways etc. pretty much any hand with a 9 in it sucks

It's a way tighter game than PLO (at least with rake, not sure what it looks like rakeless), and position is a bit different too.. (from what I've seen playing around with solvers, position is worth muchh less in plo8)

Hm.. Off-suite socks..

So from what i understand you stick to solid preflop hand chart and i should be fine right ?

Yeah stick to solid preflop hand chart and always assume someone has A2 or A3 for the low draw when there's a low draw possible.... For a rule of thumb, in most circumstances only the nut low or the 2nd nut low draw are good depending on # of players in the game. Since you're playing sng and not cash games (I'm actually a sng specialist but I dabble), you have to adjust differently and play more hands most likely as the blinds go up and even the 3rd and 4th nut low draw can be good to win half of the pot. Here's a calculator to help you learn how frequently the lows hit based on flops etc etc.

Also a very key concept is having more than 2 low cards to the draw. Because a lot of the time your low actually gets counterfeited when you pair your hand. For this reason, drawing to the wheel is so powerful in this game.

You can limp some strong hi only and lo only potential hands. It's not like we will only play A2 hands you have to still play poker and there is no rake granted most will be multiway pots which you should have strong hands. But keep in mind that just a hand with an A in it has like 50% so any hands without an ace immediately drop in value.
