Item description for Secrets of Professional Pot-Limit Omaha by Rolf Slotboom...

Pot-Limit Omaha is a fascinating game which is rapidly increasingly in popularity on the back of the current poker boom. However, there is a dearth of quality material giving advice on how to handle all elements of this complex form of poker. Until now...Secrets of Professional Pot-Limit Omaha is one of the first books to analyze medium- and high-stakes PLO in great depth. The author, long-time successful PLO cash game player Rolf Slotboom, reveals key information that has never appeared in print before. The following are just some of the topics that are discussed in this ground-breaking book: * A revolutionary short-stack approach * Adjustments for big-stack play * A study on the proper bet size * Correct seating position * Blocker play * The bare ace bluff * Exploiting your opponents' specific weaknesses Finally, the practice hands and the chapter on hand match-ups offer tremendous theoretical and practical advice. This book is a must-read for anyone who wishes to play PLO successfully.

Reviews - What do customers think about Secrets of Professional Pot-Limit Omaha?

One of the standards  Aug 5, 2008
If you are looking to learn PLO, this, Hwang, and Ciaffone are the standards.

The only thing I dislike about any of these books is that they tend to show you the easy hands - you play good cards, you get hit in the face by the flop, and then they explain what to do from there, which is fairly obvious.

They don't go into as much detail about what to do for what you really spend the bulk of your time doing, and that is getting cards that aren't that great, or whiffing on flops - because that is what is hard and requires thought and separates the beginners from the rest.

These books are all for beginners and basically tell you what you need to know to minimize the hard decisions and minimize your losses.
They also discuss a fairly tight strategy that is largely specific to full ring games and live. In that there are very few full ring games online, compared to the shorthanded 6max games that are becoming the standard for PLO regulars online.

Of the standards, Slotboom's is probably the best in terms of the next level discussion, but even then it is a lot of him talking about hands he played - but he does show a lot of the thought that goes behind it and it is a good book.
Not for you and me ...  Jun 10, 2008
Having read these reviews, I thought I'd better give my sad opinion too, since most of the reviews miss the biggest point.

Unless you are an advanced Omaha player, this book is not for you. If you don't have an exceptional understanding of the game, the stuff Rolf writes will go right over your head. God help you (and your bankroll) if you try using it in money games.

One reviewer is right in saying to read Hwang first. Ciaffone would be another good choice.
Talk About Interesting  Apr 3, 2008
Ok folks, up front this is not a how to book. Actually there is very little information in this book about starting hands, semi bluffing ect. This book is more about Power Plays. It is about using betting to lure in the action, controlling the pot, and most of all: understanding a great players use of logic rather than pure aggression. Rolf goes through hand scenerios that he has been in, in specific types of games.

For Example: He tells of his time playing in a loose aggressive game in Vienna and how he was able to develop a systematic approach in beating this particular game. P.S. It is fascinating to read.

His style is very erradic but once you read a few of his "Tales from the Felt" (as I call it) you begin to comprehend why he plays these hands a certain way in one game and completely different in another type of game.

If you are an intermediate player I would still say you should read: Jeff Hwangs, Pot Limit Omaha book first and then read this one. Because the concepts in this book are advanced and you must have a clear understanding of the game to fully grasp the ideas and plays in this book. If you don't you will loose alot of money attempting these Power Plays.

On a Personal Note:

I play Omaha hi/lo Ring Games at my local casino and there are moments when I can understand these plays and incorporate them into my game and they have helped me get that extra value for my hand that I could not get before.

Hope this helps!

Good book on PL Omaha  Mar 5, 2008
A fresh view on pot-limit omaha, a must read for everyone seriously interested in the game. Helps you understand the strategy of shortstack play perfectly.
Great strategy for minimum buy in playing  Feb 8, 2008
If you buy into cash games for the minimum and want to reduce your risk, while raking in large pots, this book is for you. Rolf has written a unique approach that is really quite informative. It takes a real commitment to his strategy for it to work, but in the long run I am sure it works well. Even if you don't use this specific strategy, the book is worth it because it covers a lot of groundbreaking areas that other Omaha books haven't touched and it is well written. I haven't pulled the trigger yet on his strategy, but I learned a lot about the reasons behind a successful Omaha strategy. Well done Rolf.
