  • Pre-flop and flop seems fine. I would definitely pot it on the turn for several reasons. You almost always have the best hand. The T can give your opponent some massive draws like wraps and wraps with FD or two pair That they will call any amount. …

  • I would raise this hand preflop from the button. You may drive out one or both blinds and then flopping on of your pairs elevates in value. As played, I think I fold the turn unless you have a lot of history with this pro. I'd rather call this …
  • If we give V1 AA and V2 as reasonable range to call-off (AT, A6, TT, 66, KQJ, 987, AKQ, AQJ, A98, A87), then you have 27-28% equity 3-way. So, like LatvianMissile said, its a slightly +EV but high variance spot that is typical in PLO. Do you want …

  • His range for check calling on the flop is mainly weaker flashes, sets, and top two pair. All of those hands have now improved to a full house except for weaker flushes. So, if you think he is capable of turning a weaker flush into a bluff here, th…

  • In the first hand with position, I like a bet of $60-75 here on this dry flop. It is unlikely to produce many two pair combos and many players don't go crazy with T4, 64, or even T6 anyways. If you get c/r, its most likely a set. Meanwhile, both …
  • Do you have any reads on either Villain? Regardless, I don't see folding doublesuited kings at this stack depth. If you give both Villains a top 15% range, then you are the favorite at 37%. Worst-case you give V2 aces and V1 a top 15% range, th…
  • Hand 1- I like betting the turn with the second nuts here. Someone would need J9+ to call on the flop, like QJ9x, J987, JT9x, etc. Some of these hands get raised preflop or on the flop. So, while you sometimes will be beat, I think you can still …
  • 1st hand - I agree with NLTOPLOPRO. Too many opponents. Check/evaluate out of position. I'd often fold to a bet and a call. You may have the best hand, but it is going to be hard to play OOP agree lots of turns and rivers. 2nd hand - I'd chec…
  • I think you see bluff catching less in these low stakes PLO game because the average player cannot read hands as well in PLO as in NLHE. I have tried to curtail my river bluff-catching lately in PLO for two main reasons: (1) a line may not make …

  • Preflop - You could also fold to the 3bet here since there will be just over 1 PSB left OTF knowing that the SB's range is AA heavy. Deeper it becomes a more standard call in position. Flop - You have flopped too much equity to fold, so the on…

  • Being in position, I don't mind making a half to 3/4 size pot bet on the flop. KTxx is discounted (though not eliminated) since no one bet. You are most likely to get called by FDs, weaker sets, T8xx, and Txxx+2 pair, which you don't mind. You a…
  • This is a tough spot because a good hand reader would know you are capped OTR which might induce a bluff, but could also use the K pairing to slowplay expecting someone to vbet or stab. With your line, you basically have the top of your range here.…
