Dabbling with Pot Limit Omaha High/Low

Just finished a nice session of PL Omaha H/L today. I have a love-hate relationship with this game, i find it can be cruel and very, very kind. I'm not too sure as to how well i played, as i know there were a couple of "why am i calling this huge bet just to split?" - situations, which i need to work on. But generally, i thought my hand selection was descent which seems to be a decisive factor in this game.

The major appeal with Omaha H/L are the huge pots. There is nothing like building a nice pot and then jamming to steal it with a low when a scare card hits, or just jamming in general with a made hand. It is absolutely a fascinating game, perfect for all action junkies. I don't think any hold 'em session can match a good Omaha H/L session. There is just no comparison to the stack you can leave tables with. I love it but i'm well aware of the big swings in this game.

If anyone has opinions/advice or any comments about their own experiences with Omaha H/L i'd love to hear them.

Current Balance: $88.65
