#1 :

MP, CO and BU must "defend" (read call) if calling has a positive expectation (and a higher EV than reraising any amount). The BB is getting a good price to defend, but also has a positional disadvantage. Because UTG can get called or reraised by MP, CO and/or BU they must be pretty strict about hand selection, which in turn means that the BB (and of course more so the SB who is in a worse position to defend than the BB because they are not closing the action AND have less invested so are getting a worse price) has to select hands which fare better against a strong range. So a hand like 9743 is imo probably better off than something like KT82 since it is less likely to be dominated and therefore has lowered implied odds.

pre : closing the action and getting better odds because we are the bb we have a clear call.
flop : I think maybe we should raise smaller. all things considered this is a pretty dry flop, there are only four ranks that change the board texture. big raise is okay as well.

overall looks well played so long as you folded the river.

flat pre

Can't fold now, but we probably should have folded the turn.

clear flop fold

well the rank of the card is pretty important for making that decision.

i would not be betting any nut flush draw combos OTT unless they had top two or a set

May 13, 2019 | 12:26 p.m.

Clear fold to the turn c/r. Your bottom two are dead and you aren't getting odds to chase your flush. Big mistake to bet the turn with this holding.

May 10, 2019 | 3:05 p.m.

I would fold the turn. We are not getting a very good price and perhaps more importantly we are not closing the action.

better to check the flop

May 3, 2019 | 9:27 a.m.

Raise pot and try to get it in vs an inferior draw. We are favoured against "just" 74 and only a modest dog to top set.

yah time to move up

April 28, 2019 | 8:13 a.m.

against QQ only your equity is pretty bad too, doesn't mean you should fold

April 25, 2019 | 1:11 p.m.

call, u only need 33% equity

April 24, 2019 | 4:59 p.m.

You bet the flop.

Comment | plolearnerguy commented on PLO with antes

the thing is these games play pretty deep and loose aggro, so I think tight aggressive is still the right approach because while you are putting in more dollars each round, the size of the forced bet relative to the size of flop and turn and river action is still quite small, so a tight strategy pays off.

The thing is that making a "good hand" is not a positive thing in a multiway pot. You need to make the best hand, and making second best is very costly. So you have to be more selective and place a premium on nut potential.
