Under the gun, you have 8h,9s,Js,Qc. The conventional wisdom (Jeff
Hwang) is that you should limp in because this hand plays better multiway,
and you want to avoid being heads up out of position. My question is, why
does this hand play better multiway?

I remember a comment on this forum- I think it was Russ- that the
best starting Omaha hands do not contain a pair. Is this correct?

ALWAYS ISOLATE WITH THAT HAND .. make sure you bring it in for a raise and
always play the triple raised pots .. you know .. the ones that always
have a sucker with kk in the pot against AA.

Keep playing that hand and then ask Morphy for advice on getting financial
aid from the state

flop a bunch of big cards and this is an easy hand to play and it will
win some very nice pots

I agree with Russ that the best Omaha hands do not contain a pair

I play mostly O8 but the high hand rules still work

COMPLETELY FALSE .. getting in the right spots with KK and QQ in your
hand and flopping a big hand is way more valuable than being the sucker
trying to make a pat hand in a big pot .

You take some horrendous beats , but long term , I will take the "big hand
" against the big draw .

Same with PLO8, I loved those spots where you can call a 4 x blind raise
with QQ and KK , in a 6-7 way pot .

And just for the morons who are going to say that I said "every time " I
had QQ and KK .. NOPE > just when it is "right " to play them
