Poker News Daily has become known as the premier site for news from the online and live poker worlds. If it's affecting the industry, rest assured that Poker News Daily will be analyzing it. However, the site has also gained notoriety for providing top-tier strategy discussions on a wide variety of games, including recent articles focusing on Omaha and HORSE.

Poker News Daily is gaining fame as the world's premier source for poker strategy articles. In addition to the industry's most experienced team of poker news reporters, the site also features a full strategy section, with content authored by the industry's brightest minds. Two recent additions to the Poker Strategy library include examinations of proper Omaha High-Low play as well as an overview of HORSE, which incorporates five of the most popular varieties of poker.

The Omaha poker strategy article is entitled "Some Simple Omaha High-Low Advice." In it, Poker News Daily's Dan Katz discusses profitable starting hole cards to play and stresses the importance of sticking to the basics. Katz added, "Someone almost always has the nuts," six words that should be at the forefront of every poker player's mind as they navigate the sometimes murky waters of Omaha. The game is one of the fastest-growing genres of poker around, as established Texas Hold'em players begin to seek out a new challenge.

The $50,000 HORSE Championship held during the annual World Series of Poker has attracted a healthy amount of attention to the game. Last year's escapade involving Scotty Nguyen's potentially inebriated play really put HORSE on the map. Poker News Daily's Earl Burton takes a look at the five games that make up HORSE: Hold'em, Omaha, Razz, Stud, and Stud Eight or Better. Burton cautioned prospective HORSE players that Razz is often the most difficult of the games to master: "Because the objective is to get the worst hand possible instead of the best, many players will make mistakes. It isn't played much as a stand alone game and, as such, most poker players aren't proficient in its nuances."

Other poker strategy articles have focused on the min-raise, the power of perception, and classic ICM situations. In addition, Poker News Daily writers have recruited some of the game's best to break down key hands. These have included Team PokerStars Pro member Bertrand "Elky" Grospellier on a hand that propelled him to victory during the World Poker Tour's Festa al Lago, Steven "PiKappRaider" Burkholder battling against Adam "Roothlus" Levy, Scott "dorinvandy" Dorin breaking down pots during the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP), and WSOP bracelet winner Matt "mattg1983" Graham discussing hands during his PokerStars $100 rebuy victory. Poker News Daily has 40 strategy articles in total running the gamut of topics, with more added each week.

Also, don't forget to check out the site for the latest poker news headlines daily. Ongoing newsworthy topics include the Tom "durrrr" Dwan Million Dollar Challenge, the WPT Los Angeles Poker Classic (LAPC), and the precipitous drop of gaming revenues in New Jersey and Nevada.
