In this section of the Omaha-8 site we are developing additional strategy information. The articles discussed below are written for players who have the basics mastered and are looking for ways to improve their overall play. If you are just starting to learn Omaha 8, read all of the information on the Omaha-8 Rules, Basic Omaha-8 Strategy and Poker Basics pages.
There are three forms of Omaha-8: limit, pot limit and no limit. Each requires a slightly different strategy to win on a consistent basis, so I have written different sections for both limit and pot limit. Though it is rarely spread, if you need strategy advice about no limit Omaha-8, the pot limit pages will help you. The reason I did not create a separate section for no limit is because not only is it not available most places, but the strategy is very similar to pot limit.
Here is a quick overview of each page in the section. I will be adding one new page per week and I will link them from here when I put them up.
