So I have been brushing up on my PLO and was just discussing the following situation with a friend of mine who has a very strong theoretical understanding of the game.
PokerStars Zoom Hand #152351140068: Omaha Pot Limit ($2.50/$5.00) - 2016/04/24 0:04:43 WET [2016/04/23 19:04:43 ET]

FLOP [3h 5h 3c]
My friend contends that we should have no lead range as the BB in this spot as we gain more from forcing a high checkback frequency and playing the 2 street uncapped branch of the game tree rather than splitting immediately on the flop.
BB has 18.5% trips+ in this spot vs just over 8% for the button and 49% equity range vs range. I know that with this kind of nut threshold imbalance in NLH solvers suggest the BB should have a leading range. Not having one doesn't sacrifice much but BB has the option to get all in with overbets which it obviously doesn't in PLO. I wasn't fully convinced by my friends arguments but he is a better PLOer than me so I thought I'd ask for some more opinions.
Do you think BB should lead this board? If so, what size and range composition? If not why not?
