The most interesting part of the hand is pre. We could call or 3b the first time, then fold, call, or 4b the 2nd time.
As for flop it's likely we're around breaking even but we should call to increase variance.
Addict63 I think your PF stats are awesome.

you've put in a third of your stack now go with it.

Shoving is +EV, calling is more +EV

On turn you have 4K left, pot is 700. You bet 550, assume he check raises to 2K. We're flipping with pretty much every hand he has. We have perfect visibility, which makes us want to call. We might not get the rest when we hit, which makes us want to raise.
This type of spot is common and I'm interested to hear what % of our stack is being committed to the raise where you think shoving > calling.

I know you're underrolled, but you're in the CO with a legitimate raising hand, you're only 85BB deep due to double straddle. I think you played the hand well on every street, you can blame BB for sending you to flames as collateral damage to BTN.

Villain : We have a history of him check calling me in most spots, he doesn't raise me without the goods. He would rather tangle with the other players. In this session he's winning big and wants to protect it. (5K)
MP: Major fish, she's on her last buy in and is ready to go home. She gets it in most hands. (400)
Hero : 4K, nit preflop, aggro post. (4K)
It's NL Big O, game has been wild pre.
Villain's 10 straddle on btn, 8 handed. Hero with AdAs3d4d5h, I was going to limp jam and pick up the few hundred dead.
Hero completes BB, 2 limps, MP limps, BTN checks.
Flop (50) : AcKh8c
Hero 100, MP calls, BTN calls
Turn (350) : 2c
Hero checks, MP ai 300, BTN snap calls
We have about 3500 behind and pot will be 1250 or so if we call.
Villain is probably much more weighted to 1 way nutted hands, he's also the straddle with 100% pre.
Raise small or pile it in?

Hero: 2nd tightest player at table. My usual stakes are 2-5 and villain knows this. Villain is very good at PLO and has played less than 20 sessions of Big O, he's still making some mistakes but generally solid. 12K eff.
BTN 50, HJ double straddles 100
Pre: Co nit calls, Hero (btn) calls, villain (sb) raises to 300, both call
Flop (1000) : AsQh8s
Villain 600, CO folds, hero calls
Turn (2200) : 9x
River (2200) : Tx
I will have a lot of hands with no showdown value here, if I bluff them all I will be overbluffing a lot. I also won't have a jack blocker without a straight too often. What are good hands to bluff with here? Both in a theoretical and practical application would be interesting.

4 handed PLO. 2200 effective
3 players ante 100, the 4th goes all in preflop without looking.
The players, in turn, get to call or fold 2200.
How do we go about calculating optimal calling and over calling ranges, as well as the EV of each range?
