here should be your hand selection:
good : A2xx
AKQJ
AKQT
AAxx
A3xx
KKQQ
KKJJ
KKTT
KQJ9
KQJT
KK24
QJT9
234x


Great:
AA23
AA2x
AA3x
A23x
A2KK
A2QQ
A2KQ
A2KJ
A345
A346
A356
A3KK
A3QQ
23KK
23QQ

Stick to those and you should be fine.... also... If you have the NUT low or with say 3 people in the hand BET IT as hard as you can because you will get %50 back which is usually a profit :) also a flush is really only good if you have the A with the hand

regular omaha the best is AAKK double suited. h/l i like AA23 double suited.

The hardest is not playing too many hands.

As far as books go, I have been reading Winning Omaha/8 Poker by Lou Krieger and it is how I learned to play.  I just put a long post together that talks about the strategy for newbies.  The link to that post is below.

All the starting hands here are pretty smart.  However, be very careful when playing a low, as someone will have a high hand, and someone else might have the same low.  Then you catch zero profit, or possibly even a loss on the hand.

So, in all truth, I would play around the same hands listed, including some of the top Omaha High hands.  I would go in definitely looking for a monster high hand, and then play passively if I backed into a good low hand, and probably would fold my low if action got pretty heavy, unless it was the nut low or 2nd nut low.

omaha h/l is harder to learn than texas holdem. I think the key is to see the flop each time it dont cost you alot of money. (when theres no re-raise on the preflop). If you dont see community cards ...you cant win.
