Everyone has a weak game. A limit hold'em shark can be confounded by razz. A stud specialist may dread Omaha hi/lo and split-pot wizards might find their stomachs clenching when a stud high hand comes up. But here's the thing about H.O.R.S.E. You can't hide from your weak game. It's...more

Doyle Brunson once said that in order to win a poker tournament, you have to win with A-K and you have to beat A-K. Essentially he was saying, "Win your flips." In Pot-Limit Omaha, the flips don't usually involve A-K but they're no less critical to winning the tournament. You...more
