First hand is a pretty easy fold imo your perceived range here is pretty strong here so i am really surprised to see a shove here. He almost allways has some sort of boat or 4xxx hand here i think.
Second it is kinda close but i kinda like calling here i think he would x raise all his made hands OTF on such a wet board.(AJ,JJ,A6 etc) you do not block any FD here so i think you could lean towards calling this off.

I personally am not a fan of FR PLO because it is essentially a nut pedalling game which can be a bit dry. I like playing them every now and again since i play a decent amount of live which is mostly FR so its good to be comfortable playing 6,7,8 way. In terms of bankroll i think you can be pretty aggresive i could argue you could go as low at 20bis if you are winning at around 8bb/100 which is pretty easy to do at FR plo if you play a good solid game imo.

One thing i love about RIO is that you only pay a tiny amount (for essential plan at least) to get so much great content that covers all aspects of the game. i've struggled a lot with mental game and videos like this are really helpful and informative. Thanks James!

i'm learning a lot from your vids :) with the 67s at around the 25 minute mark, as played after calling flop, do you think a raise on the turn is something we can consider? sometimes i might be flatting my sets and two pair on the flop looking to raise the turn (given no flush draws to worry about) so do you think it's a decent strategy to call flop and raise turn with two pair+ and straight draws? also i would have thought the board pairing helps us more than it helps him..

Very nice vid! Just one query. At about 6:30 i think you misread the hand, the flop didn't check through, the opener cbet and SB called and then hero overcalled with a flush draw. Do you think this overcall is fine? I used to always call in these spots cos i thought the odds were too good, but recently i've been more skeptical. I find myself getting into reverse implied odds situations when the flush card comes, since when the pot gets big i'm usually behind to a bigger flush or a full house (given board is paired here). Do you think it's still fine to call with the weak flush draw for that price, even though completing the flush could make you a costly second best hand?
