Poker Video Spotlight -- Mark Gregorich On Omaha Eight-or-Better Strategy
Card Player TV Talks To Omaha Eight-or-Better Specialist Gives Advice On Starting Hands
Card Player TV recently caught up with Omaha eight-or-better specialist Mark Gregorich for a video interview about the types of hands that you should be playing in Omaha-eight beyond just A-A-2-3 double suited.
Gregorich is particularly well qualified to speak on the subject, because in addition to playing the game for a living he also co-authored the chapter on it in the popular poker strategy book Super System 2 with poker legend Bobby Baldwin.
In the video, Gregorich provides information on the second tier of starting hands that players should be looking to enter hands with.
“One of the biggest problems I see beginners getting into in O/8 is that they have trouble folding hands before the flop,” says Gregorich. “Since you get four cards instead of two, as in hold’em, it’s so easy to find something that looks good.”
In the video Gregorich also discusses playing high-only starting hands, an area of the game that can be confusing to fledgling Omaha eight or better players.
