I am a break-even NLHE and PLO player. I have always admired Nguyen’s ability to explain complicated ideas succinctly. For all my friends playing NLHE I recommend them to read Nguyen’s books (Blueprint and Workbook) right after Harrington’s. I have also read the Transitioning from NLHE to PLO from Nguyen some months ago (only excerpts though). I purchased the PLO video expecting the same level of insights from Nguyen’s NLHE books and here is my review.

The content covers post-flop hand selection and flop play. Hand selection is in Chapter 2 which runs for ~17 minutes. It covers which hands to play, which hand to 3-bet and which hand to call a raise (or call a 3-Bet). If the video series did not come with the Transitioning from NLHE book I would have said that the hand selection part is too short. With the book however, this part is well covered. Buyers, don’t forget to read the book before you move on!
Flop-play is categorized into 6 videos, based on position and initiative. They are good but the length is too short (75 minutes in total). Tri does not create a separate video for turn and river play, but instead talk about it sometimes when discussing the flop play. I think this is a good approach because in PLO we are supposed to think ahead, turn consideration should be taken into account on the flop.
Again the book provides a nice supplement to the otherwise short videos on flop play.

Tri’s and James’ success in NLHE publication owe largely to their innovative idea. I have heard that Let there be Range is the first book that really explains the style of the “new school” players. Although I have not read that book, after reading the Workbook and the Blueprint, I have to agree. The video series is unfortunately not the groundbreaking work I was hoping for.
First, Tri’s ideas have been explained in the videos by its competitors. I have a DeucesCracked subscription, and I have finished 3 to 4 series from DeucesCracked. I have heard the same thing found in Tri’s video and I regret to say that Tri’s videos add nothing new.
Second, the videos are simply too short for the ideas to get across. Because PLO is such a complicated game there are many more factors to consider than in NLHE. A few more hand examples would really hammer the ideas across.

What prevent the series from getting a 5-star recommendation are the errors.
For example in Lesson 6 4:40, the powerpoint slide is titled 3-bet Flops with initiative in Position, but it says “I opened in MP…only small blind called”. Where is the 3-bet? The next example makes the same mistake, “I have AA73 and raised pre-flop, big blind calls”. I believe they are mere typos but it hurts the professionalism feeling a bit.

A more serious error is in Lesson 14 Theory in practice.
Hero is on MP, has 5s6d7h8s, Flop is Tc7dKh. Villain 3-bet IP on button pre-flop. Pot is 60, Effective Stack is $76.2
Tri puts villain on AA, KK and Big Rundown. Tri ran several equity analyses on AA and concluded we have enough equity to commit the remaining stack. Unfortunately Tri forgot to put the rest of his assigned range into ProPokerTools. Tri concluded the play should be check-raise all-in, or Bet-Call.
My own analysis is this: Villain is paying 76.2 to win (76.2 + 76.2 + 60). Villain needs to win 35.87% to break-even. If we pit Tri’s range {AAxx, KKxx and 4 broadway cards} against Villain’s holdings, he only wins 32.45% thus making this play –VE. (Enter AA, KK, $R$R$R$R in ProPokerTools)
I also think that if we feel committed, the only play is Bet-Call. This is because check-raising has no folding equity in SPR <2. Bet-Calling at least gives our opponent a chance to make an incorrect fold with Txxx or QQxx etc.

This is a solid beginner’s video. If you have just finished reading Hwang’s books (Pot-Limit Omaha, and Advanced Pot-Limit Omaha Vol. 1) I recommend you to give this series a try. Start with the book before you read the video, and you will understand the ideas better. If you have subscribed to DeucesCracked/CardsRunner/Bluefire then my guess is that you will find nothing new here.

I think USD$199 is a bit expensive for beginner’s videos, especially when subscription to training video sites cost about the same (but with more contents). BUT, this video series comes with a free copy of Transitioning from NLHE to PLO, which costs $47 alone. Moreover you get 10% discount by subscribing to their mailing list and type the bonus code attached therein (search the web for discount code if you are lazy). I think one cannot go wrong with either option.
There is no harm in trying too, Tri says they give a full refund, and they really do! I ended up refunding the book partly because I have seen the ideas before and partly because I want to give Advanced PLO Play (a book) a try. The refund came in less than 5 hours, and really no question asked! Nice job DailyVariance.
