1/2 w/ 5$ bring in PLO
btn opens for 20 after a few limps
i call in SB w/ 77xx (can't remember my other cards sorry)
6 ways to flop (120$)
flop comes 5 7 5:r:
I decide to lead for 100$. My thinking is that if someone has a 5 they are not going to fold for one bet, and with so many people left behind me, one of them will likely have a 5. Also if it gets checked through I am giving a free card to anyone with an overpair to hit a higher full house.
Everyone ended up folding, and afterwards two of the players who folded both said they folded a 5 (one of them said he showed the dealer A5 and the dealer confirmed). If I am not able to get value from trips in this spot than what can I get value from? This made me rethink my decision to lead out. If I look that strong leading from up front maybe I should just check everything. I should add I don't really have a nitty image in general, and dont think i did at this point.
I think if I check it is likely someone who has a 5 will bet. I really don't have too much experience playing PLO, though I seem to always hear the advise to never slowplay. This is probably to much of a generalization - maybe this is a spot were slowplaying or check raising would show a much better profit.
Would you of check in this spot? How would you play this board if you had A5, or 75? are you just check folding a wrap or are you ever using that as a semibluff to balance people possibly overfolding to you in this spot?
