9: Rarely or never slow play
There are number of reasons that you should rarely slow play including the following:
- Omaha is a drawing game and it is rare that you will flop the immortal nuts, for either high or low. You need to charge others to draw against you.
- Even if you have half the pot locked up, the other half may still be all to play for. As an example, suppose you flop quads with a single low card. Don’t allow your opponents a free pass to a runner-runner low, which will split the pot.
- Omaha players love to draw and will frequently pay you off when drawing nearly dead.
