yeah I thought that our blockers were bad because the majority of the hands we beat otr are the AKQXhxhx type of hands that now feel like my hand is most likely overpair+diamonds or pair+wrap. That being said, our blockers are terrible, we unblock hearts, and we block QQ but are we folding all 89s? if hes not betting his 89s, which i dont think he would or should, should we call all Jxs and fold this with shitty blockers like we have? I thought it was close and called, and did not pass go.

We play a 25/50/100 hosted private PLO game every week and the game is a mixture of one very smart thinking Tag, 3 whales, 4 NL nits who sort of know what to do with four cards, and me.
Game is off the hook and the whales are hammered and we’re all drinking shots like it’s 1/28/1919 and the 18th Ammendment is about to pass tomorrow. Hammered Tag (60k) opens btn to 400, whale (50k) on my right with SB calls. I (50k) look down at QQ98scsc and squeeze to 1700. Btn calls, whale folds 🤯.
Flop: J ♦️ T ❤️ 6 ♦️
I check. Tag bets 3300. I call.
Turn: J ♥️
I check, Tag checks quickly.
River: 7 ♥️
I check. Tag bets 7k. I???
Thoughts on pre, flop, and river much appreciated. I want to withhold the results to prevent confirmation bias til some crusher way in... Thanks RIO Fam.

Great video and thank you for the artfully crafted insight into 250+bb PLO as there's very little content at all concerning this format. Small question: at 12:40 you open fold 8776ss utg, but in the cutoff 4handed, and in an ante game I'm always opening this, maybe even in the hijack with nits and flat players on the cut off and btn. Am I over valuing this hands connectedness and the mid pair this deep or was your fold a function of opening other tables coupled with the psychological tightness associated with being utg? Mid and bottom set does suck a lot this deep...
Also, could you please shed light on why you and the other superstars like Oddsen open to 2.27-2.5 on the btn without an aggro 3btr in the blinds? I'm still in 2.5-3xland nursing the idea that I want my opponent to make larger errors while OOP and an avg larger pot IP cant be bad, but clearly I have to fold to 3bets more and play shallower in 3bet pots. As always thank you, and keep up the wonderful content man.
