Comment | actual fish commented on PLO10 Line Check

Please take my comments lightly as I am a new player myself. I would get it in on the flop. However I'm pretty confident you're exclusively up against aces here. I also play low stakes and am only ever 3 bet by Aces or Kings. Since you have kings you're up against the aces. OTT you have 27.5% against random aces and I think you need around 30% to call so it's pretty close. All I'm saying is I would get the money in as gas said but I would expect to be behind.

This hand was played on PPPoker and the game plays very loose preflop. The only available stat is VPIP the original raisers was 59/%. Preflop I think the call is fine with the suited ace and connected side cards. On the flop is where I struggled. I checked bc I was OOP to everyone and was planning to check raise if someone bet. On the turn I pick up the nut flush draw along with the two pair so I bet and when raised I 3 bet all in. My main question is on the flop should I be leading into 3 opponents? On the turn I think GII is fine but am open to any other suggested lines.

Yes as I make my way through the videos here I am realizing that many hands that I thought were playable aren't really or would only be opens from later position.

Preflop I pot it which I think is fine with the SS rundown. On the flop I check and call, I didn't want to lead out and get raised bc I can improve on many turn cards and I expect that UTG has hit this flop pretty hard. Since I block the straight and have the nut flush blocker, I expect to be up against pair plus heart draws and two pair hands. On the turn I pick up the flush draw along with the gutshot . I check call but I think I should have folded since I'm only really ahead of a naked heart flush draw and I'm never expecting my T to be good on its own. On the river I check fold to the shove. I was lost in this hand bc on the turn I picked up equity but still felt like I should have folded.

Preflop I don't 3 bet bc I didn't want to be in a 3 bet multiway pot OOP with marginal aces. This was played on PPPoker, and the opponents were very loose. The only stat available on PPPoker is VPIP, and all opponents had VPIPs of 45% minimum. So I didn't think I would be getting too many folds by 3 betting here. On the flop I lead out for half pot. I thought this sizing was appropriate but I also could have gone smaller due to the dry texture. On the turn I check. Even though the spade brings the flush draw I didn't want to inflate the pot with trip 2's. On the river I check again and it gets checked back. Should I be betting the river in this spot for value after he checks back the turn and the river doesn't change the board?

section 5.2 towards the end addresses wraps and was very helpful to me.

BTN(hero): 36.28

Hero pots to $1.20 with Td8d7s6c, BB raises to $3.60, Hero calls

Turn($15.02) 9d3d3h5d
BB checks, Hero bets $15.02, BB raises to $60.08, Hero calls and is all in.

I think calling the 3 bet is fine given we're heads up and my hand is coordinated with a suit. He could easily have a high pair that a rundown would play well against. It's also possible he 3 bet with a higher rundown type hand though. On the flop I think it's an easy call with the flush draw and BDSD, I have many good turn cards and position. On the turn when he checks it over to me I'm thinking he's got some AAxx or another high pair that is checking the flushing turn and I pot it. I wasn't worried about the paired board bc I don't think he's 3 betting me with many hands having the 3 along with either the 5 or the 9. When he raises it I only had $13.95 left behind so I called it off with the T high flush. My main questions are should I be taking the paired board as more of a threat and should I be playing the T high flush less aggressively on the turn?

Pre flop I should have raised pot and only 3x'd it. On the flop I bet because I don't have many good turn cards and my hand is quite vulnerable. I feel like on this drawy board texture betting may have been a mistake. Once he calls my flop bet on this board I think calling it off on the turn was a pretty big mistake. Honestly I just started playing PLO and just read PLO from scratch. In the book it said not to give up too easily in 3 bet pots and that was running through my head as I called the turn. I played this hand on PPPoker so I don't have any stats on villain and he was an unknown to me. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
