I dont have oracle.The reason that I made 3bet was to see the reaction of raiser. in live game I often 3bet small to see the strenght of their hands. many players re-raise only with AAxx, when they do I have information about them and if only call I know that hands is not so strong, for same reason I made 5bet, because 4bet was not so strong (max raise was about 70-80) I thought that if I made this big raise I would win hands preflop, other if he had AAxx (which I didn't expect) and he 6bet me, I have enough stack to call and play on the flop. Also I didn't expect limpers to fold small 3bet, but really expected to fold 5bet

Friday night i decided to check what happened in casino and found one omaha table full with weak players , the game was 2/2 but average was about 1000. I started deep with 1000 and after 10 minutes won good hand and double my stack. The game was very loose and I also did some stupid thinks sometimes. One interesting hand I was 357J on BB ,after some limps one reg raise to 7 none fold to me ,and I 3bet to 15, the reg 4 bet to 45, 2 calls and here and decide to 5 bet to 240, firts drunken fish push all in to 300, reg only call ,and other fish also call. 4 players see the flop: As 3s 6h , pot was 1200 and I decide to play my hand as AAxx and bet pot, doesn't matter that one player is all in and I have to show my card, in this situation I am shure that no one have AAxx , and because the pot is too large I thought that no one will call with weak draw or Axxx, and also have good ods again all-in player with (xxxx). Was my decision corrrect? I know that my hand is realy awful also my position, but my first plan was to play big pot against one player

I make nuts flush, they check and I bet 260 and player 1 raise me to 600 , player 2 fold. what's my best play?

All the time I knew that I have to push here, but I fold not only because I thought that someone else could have AA** , but cause I know this players: CO and UTG, and know that none of them will fold, and dont want to gamble with this stack size. Anyway my decision was bad :( And new question for me is: Do I have to play big limits when I think more about money than to take right decisions?

I think here he will call two times with two pair, over pair, set or some straight draw, I think with realy good hands he will 3bet you. And this flop more times is better for him.If he have made hand on the turn,7 is not good card for him, because many straights are possible, and he is going to check call with two pair or set or smaler straight like 42. But when he lead here I think that more times you are against nuts or second nuts, and he know that if chech , you will also check and he will miss value with 89 or 84. I think that another heart on the river is better card for hero call.

for me the best play on flop is bet 6-7$ , and if he raise call my be is better option without fdraw,I dont like check here , because he can also check with air or weak draw, my be he will bet hands like Jxxx, two pair ot stronger or naked fdraw, but in this situation I think that if he had a strong hand he will 4bet preflop with this stack size. check-raise is option , there he will probably fold air and weak draw, but when he call we are in troble if the heart come later

In Zoom game I think that is not a good plan to open limp, because many player check/fold from big blind and you give them to see flop, if you raise and someone 3-bet , you can also call, and on many flops you will have the best hand ,and you can chek-raise flop, also if the flop come Axx you will take money from player in position who can represent your hand.But when you limp and after MP raise and have 3 callers, its 100% that only MP can have AAxx, and if you 3bet he will 4bet you, but with 14/10 MP raise 80% of his range, and when you 3bet he can raise for isolate others.
On the flop ,when you only call preflop, its easy fold for me.
In 9 handed game I almost every time play weak AAxx passive OOP with idea to hide my hand , and if flops top set its more difficult to other ot put on this hand when you only call PFR, but it depends mainly of your stack size and SPR on the flop.If you are with normal 100BB or less limp 3bet is better options for me. But in 6 max especially in zoom game open with raise is better OOP

in live 5/10 , very deep game on the button I had AAQ2 ss , under the gun (aggresive player, who saw almost every flop)(2500) limp ,next from middle one short stack(550) raise to 35, cut of(5000) 3-bet to 105, I(4000)-call, under the gun-call, and the short stack push all-in, next cut of re-raise new pot to 1870, and I decided to fold with my deep stack, under the gun also push all-in, flop AK7 ,and I was top set with nut flush draw ,but I fold, cut of A8910 ds, under the gun 910JQ , turn 10, river 10, Is it correct to fold with this big stack in this situation? because I thought that its possible that someone also have AAxx, which is not good, and also if I push all-in under the gun will call, and I don't want to gamble with this stack size
