Hi, what do you think about this hand?

** €20 Max [Omaha] (0.10|0.20 PL - Cash Game)

VILLAIN sitting in seat 1 with €21.72[BU]
SB sitting in seat 2 with €21.63
HERO sitting in seat 3 (BB) with €20
SB posted the small blind - €0.10
HERO posted the big blind - €0.20

** Dealing cards to HERO: Jh, 10h, Js, 6s
BU raised to €0.70
SB folded
HERO called - €0.50

** Dealing the flop: 8h, Qc, 9h
HERO checked
BU bet - €1
HERO raised to €3.80
BU called - €2.80

** Dealing the turn: 2c
HERO bet - €4.50
BU called - €4.50

** Dealing the river: 2d
HERO went all-in - €11
BU called - €11

Most of the loosing hands probably won´t call my shove here, but i would play it the same way with the nuts (maybe with bigger raises OTF + OTT), so i´m not sure if it´s a good line or not.

I´m grateful for every advice

Maybe it´s good to change the perspective – what hands could the 18/8 bluff and what could he bet for value OTT and OTR?

When he has a valuable show-down hand he x-call OTT too and let you do the betting - keeps your range wide.

OTT: x-raise on a 3rd "4" – (which could be categorized as a "blank") looks really suspicious to me and capped his range – And he changes his line on that card, from x-call to x-raise.

I would prefer keep the pot under control and call down, or probably fold OTR.

HJ = Full Ring?
GTO? to be honest, i am not sure.

On a 6-max Table i guess my FI on MP is between 15%-20% - depends on the opponents and the table dynamic. And i play most of the time without a HUD or tracking software, so i don´t have many stats. :-)

hey Alex,

i would just call OTF – you have position and you close the action.

(and i would consider to just fold pre-flop) ..but i´m a beginner, so it could be a wrong assumption :-)

Comment | Georg commented on Flopped quads 400bb deep

nh and imo good play, the money vs Nut Full House goes in anyway.
I never give you quads in this spot, because playing oop 22xx Hand seems a little strange to you only can have a 99xx type hand..;-)

In case Opponent is Loose-Aggressive or a Fish, you get his stack anyway. Wait for the right spot. I like your play.

i agree, opponent will bet the flop most of the time.

Comment | Georg commented on 5PLO turn equity

i would think about folding the turn. You only have a NFD without any redraws.

OOP, you don´t get paid off that often, when you hit it (like in this case).
There are to many Hands that you don´t whant to see on the River. :-)

Maybe the River bet could be a little bit smaller, to induce a cry (idiot) call..
