This is a live PLO hand I played recently with which I had some trouble with so I thought I would share it with the great minds here on runitonce to receive some advice/analysis on what is the best way to play this hand vs villain.
Villian is a tough regular, very aggressive and tricky. The type who will put pressure as soon as he senses any weakness and will always follow through. Preflop I think it is pretty standard limp call with my hand. Flop is where it got tricky. I think I could've gone either way check-call or check-raise. Decided to check-raise blocking 9 but this play may have been a mistake vs this particular opponent. Would like to hear what you guys think. His re-raise was the interesting part. During the hand I'm thinking he would not have done that with a strong made hand, I think he would rather call and let me barrel if he had had set. I think he has a lot of wraps, some 9-4, 9-3 two pairs or maybe even just one 9. What do you guys think his re-raising range is there and how should we proceed with the hand as played?
