Editorial Reviews

Review

Most useful for players moving from full ring PLO (9 or 10 players) to short-handed PLO (6 players or fewer).

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

D&B Publishing present the PLO Dream Team.

 

Rolf Slotboom and Rob Hollink join forces to produce THE definitive guide to short-handed Pot-Limit Omaha (tables with six or fewer players).

 

Do you know Pot-Limit Omaha is one of the fastest growing forms of poker?

Do you know that the biggest online money games are Short-Handed Pot-Limit Omaha?

 

Rolf and Rob will tell you how to:

 

* Gauge the optimum size of the buy-in

* Decide whether to check-raise or bet into the raiser

* Represent big hands

* Misrepresent hands in order to get paid off

* Get your opponents off good, but non-nut hands

* Judge when to raise with drawing hands

 

Rolf Slotboom is the author of the classic “Secrets of Professional Pot Limit Omaha”. In his first attempt in 2007 on the World Series of Poker he cashed four times, including the main $10,000 event.

 

Rob Hollink has been a leading player for over 20 years and has won both a European tour title and, in 2008, a World Series bracelet.

This book require a lot of work ,and reflection from the reader.
For those willing to put in the hours, thinking about the many consepts in the book,and how these consepts are tied together,this book will probably be very rewarding. This is not a beginners book per se. Like in his previous book on Omaha, Slotboom puts a lot of emphasis on the different size of your buy in.What is the optimal buy in, related to table position,where you sit in relation to different types of opponents etc. His "simple" approach, on how to avoid difficult decisions on the expensive streets when out of position is brilliant. All in all a very good and thoughtprovoking text on Shorthanded PLO.

It's clear Rolf understands PLO very well, and comes at it with some unique ideas which have resulted in a lot of success for him. However (and this was true of his first book as well) he has a very difficult time expressing his ideas clearly.

If you read the text, you'll often be faced with very, very long paragraphs that go on and on. It's difficult to absorb because you're literally faced with a giant block of text with all sorts of digressions and side comments. The book really needs to be broken into a lot of smaller chapters, each tightly focused on a single idea. And each chapter needs to be broken into smaller sections, with clear headings, so you know exactly what's being discussed. More whitespace would really help comprehension, too.

Worth reading if you play PLO (especially at non-micro stakes), but it's a bit of work to get value out of it. Also, please be aware that some of his short stack recommendations aren't really useful if you're playing at a low stakes level, because the rake you pay wipes out any gains you might make from dead money in the pot, etc.

It is not a punishment to read this book. I like the lively style of these writers very much. The method, being presented, is new for PL Omaha, but practical and easy to understand and easy to play. The examples help a lot too. Although this book is written by top-professional poker players, it is still no problem to master the concepts, when you have some basic knowlegde about odds and outs. This book is a "must have" for every serious PL Omaha player! Furthermore, when you want to play for high stakes, you cannot afford to miss reading the high stakes hands from Full Tilt described by Rob Hollink.

This is an excellent work on Pot Limit Omaha, for advanced players. Its not written for beginners, its more like a graduate level work for serious players.

Slotboom's books on Pot Limit Omaha are the best material available on the topic that I am aware of.

What else is there to say? If you want a beginners book you should probably look elsewhere, though Slotboom's writing is crystal clear and easy to understand, it does require some intelligence on the part of the reader :-)

Format: Paperback
This book was a total waste of time. Every other page, the writer was touting his previous book. His "strategies" are vague. Even the examples he uses to explain his thought process are incompete and inaccurate. His pre-flop betting is laughable. Anyone interested in PLO should avoid this book.
