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?

Hey guys, I've just started playing open face chinese with fantasyland and was just wondering how big the normal swings are for this game? So far I've played just a couple of sessions of headsup where I was up around 50-100 points and one 3 handed session where I lost abit more than 400 points. Are these considered normal swings?

I'll be travelling to Macau for the first time for the APPT and was wondering if I could get some travel tips from those of you who've been there. I'm really excited about the trip and would like to make the most out of it. Any tips on cool things to do/places to check out are really appreciated!
