Omaha as a trainer for Hold'em.

I find that playing Omaha helps my Hold'em.

It takes a considerable hand to win in Omaha. If you take that attitude into Hold'em you will waste less bets.

you cant possibly play omaha as you play holdem....its totally different.
omaha has a possible 6 hands per have to assume in omaha someone has the nuts and if its not you be very careful.there is a lot less bluffing in omaha,very rare indeed and that comes down to the 98% rule that someone has the nuts!
how often does a pair win in omaha?even better a middle pair or low pair?very very seldom yet in holdem A high can pick up pots
i'm no expert but i read a little and play a lot and really you must chase that idea from out of your head.sorry to be blunt but thats rubbish!

Omaha is a horrible way to teach Holdem. Top pair is worthless and I mean WORTHLESS in omaha. In holdem top pair aces can be dominating. I have to disagree.

Yeah... they are too different...

In Omaha, you can be drawing to a hand and have over 50% chance of making it... So you bet your draw for sure.

I do know what you mean about Tightening up your hold'em though. To me, it makes me respect people's cards more (too much?)
