What does PLO stand for in online poker?

Pot-limit Omaha Poker

When you come across ‘PLO’ in online poker circles, it’s a quick way to say “pot-limit Omaha”. This is a style of poker that’s become pretty popular, especially with internet gamers.

Pot-limit Omaha saw its star rise in the 2010s, and it started giving a run for its money to another favorite, NLHE. What made it a hit? Well, it’s all down to the cards.

In Omaha, the starting hands of the players are a bit more predictable than in Hold ‘Em. This is because each player gets more cards to begin with. So, it encourages players to play more hands instead of folding and waiting it out.
