I like to play PLO and I just started and switched over from NLHE, so this is a great help for new PLO players.
A lot of all-ins or big bets happen on the flop, so it's good to know when to put your money in and what to look out for (opponents cards and outs).

PLO is a game of action, because players have four cards to choose from when on the flop, so when the flop hits players usually decide on the flop if they want to play on with their hand, so it's usefull to read the flop and have a good read on what your opponents do and could hold in their hand.

I play microstakes PLO to learn the game and this is very helpfull, because PLO is a little bit different than NLHE, because of the heavy draws.
It helps to know when to bet or when to check/call and on what flop to do so.
Usually PLO has a lot of pre-flop callers/limpers, so usually the pot on the flop is a multiway one, this could get you a big pot, with a multiway pot there are usually more players to have hit the flop and decide to play on. (hitting a draw)

I hope it is as usefull for you as it was for me.
