I have enjoyed PLO so far this month. I will post a screenshot at the end. I don't have a lot of hands, though.
A few PLO observations:
1. The players are really really bad. I consider myself to be at the 2 year old monkey with down's syndrom stage of learning PLO, but most of the 50 plo is closer to somethign like a 3 celled organism. Even the regs are playing 65/7 or something.
2. I played 780 hands and got my effective stacks in with 90%+ equity like 4 times not including river where people are obviously drawing dead.
3. If you tilt, plo is not for you. You have to play some 50/50 and 60/40 hands to make money. Lose 3 or 4 of those in a session and lose your mind, your bankroll will follow.
I'll close iwth a screenshot and my favorite hand so far. I am probably running a bit below expectation but I don't expect to make a lot of money this month. I want to learn the game and be crushing 1/2-2/4 in a few months.
I would also like to say dodgyken's photoshop of cts playing guitar = heroin needles was very well done. It is a bit disturbing that he facebook stalked me to get it though.
I love my stalkers though.
