$25/$50 Pot Limit Omaha is a BIG game.

But it's even bigger when you're up against a very tough, intelligent, and aggressive opponent, which sets the stage for today's hand analysis.

First, an announcement.

Chris Wehner in a high stakes cash game

Chris Wehner is a high stakes Pot Limit Omaha professional who methodically grinded his way from the very bottom, $0.01/$0.02, to become a crusher at $25/$50. Over the last decade, Chris has studied poker "more or less every day" which has translated to an incredibly in-depth knowledge of PLO. As Chris likes to say, and as I've come to believe since I've started watching his PLO videos, "he has the answers."

Dylan Weisman in the 25k PLO High Roller at the WSOP

Dylan Weisman has been playing poker professionally in some capacity since he was 16, when he started playing online to help support his family with his earnings. After taking a quasi-sabbatical from poker to focus on college and then a job in analytics and business intelligence, Dylan returned to the full-time grind in 2018. In the past 18 months, Dylan has grinded from $2/$4 to $10/$20 online, and he's played in the largest live PLO cash games in Las Vegas.

Chris and Dylan have combined forces to create the Advanced PLO Mastery course, coming to Upswing Poker in early 2020.

Without further ado, onto the hand.


The game is $25/$50 heads-up Pot Limit Omaha.

Chris raises to $150 on the button with 9♣ 9♠ 8♣ 8 and mjparry calls in the big blind.


The flop falls A 8♠ 6♠ and mjparry checks. Chris bets $200 into $300 and mjparry calls.


The turn is the (A 8♠ 6♠) K♠ and mjparry checks again. Chris fires a pot-sized bet of $700 and mjparry check-raises to $2,275. With around $22k behind, Chris makes the call.


The river 7♠ completes a board of A 8♠ 6♠ K♠ 7♠. mjparry mashes the pot button, betting $5,250. Chris calls.


mjparry shows A♠ Q♣ 6 4 and Chris scoops the $15.7k pot.
