Hi guys,I am still very new to the game of Omaha, and mainly I have been playing pot limit omaha because of the great action, unfortunately, I have become fish food many times. I am playing low stakes and usually get into 6 handed games because Full Tilt does not have many 9 handed games for some reason. I have a great grasp on Hold em' and consistently win playing tournament NL. For this topic I was wanting some basic direction as far as PLO goes. What are good starting hands?When should one raise pre-flop if ever?What are some common leaks in peoples PLO games?What are some good resources as far as books? (I have read Cloutier's book on Omaha but it didn't help me much)I am open to any other advice as well. Thanks so much!

I have read some of the other topics that deal with my questions on this forum and a others.. however, I would still like to explore what are common leaks of omaha games and also how should I adjust my game for 6 handed play.. also, it would be nice to have a good idea of some books to buy! Thanks again!

The strategy for Omaha poker starting hands with King and Queen Pairs have similar rules as ace pairs. If you want to know more about Omaha Poker basics here some reference: http://www.onlinepok...starting-hands/
