Championship Omaha by T.J. Cloutier and Tom McEvoy

This is not a perfect book but still one of the best about Omaha. It covers most aspects of this complex game such as the rules of play, the best starting hands and flop, turn and river strategies. It will also help you read the board for both high and low, show you how to discover dangerous draws and how to play against loose and tight players. Omaha is played in many different ways – Limit High-Low, Limit High, and Pot-Limit High – and their all tended to in this book.

But as mentioned there are some flaws. The structure and editing is poor, and some sections, the on tournament play for example, aren’t as elaborate that one would wish. In addition to this some of the concepts described seem rather old and the book could use a little freshening up.

The authors, T.J. Cloutier and Tom McEvoy are both experienced Omaha players, with four World Series of Poker titles each under the belt. The two have written several other books together such as Championship Tournament Poker, Championship No-Limit and Pot-Limit Hold’em and Championship Hold’em.
