Nick Johnson Not just what it could look like, but what it should look like. I'm thinking some real range construction stuff with some extracted heuristics about how to construct our ranges and be reasonably balanced in a spot, especially as a hand goes over multiple streets.

It would be interesting to see if we could find some GTO-approximate heuristics from solver insights about how to construct our ranges on common board textures and so forth.

Sure, we know it's better to bet polarized than merged in PLO, but on KK5, there's a lot of hands to pick from because we whiff a lot on that board. Which hands are better for bluffing? What about other board textures?

Can we see any patterns from the solvers and get some heuristics from it for a handful of board textures?

I think that would be a goldmine.

I think a video that takes a look at how to find bluffs on turns and rivers would be quite interesting.

Check back the flop.

If we're flatting AAxx preflop (which I kinda like when they're dry), I think we should have a leading range on the flop. Our ranges are both really strong, and I think we should have a leading range on these kinda boards where we smash top set because our strong range makes it more likely that he'll check back a lot of hands that he would bet against a weaker range.

We can lead something like sets, massive combo draws, and some draws that aren't good enough to check-call.

As played, I'd bet the turn. He can call a lot of worse hands.

I call the river because theory, but expect to lose because PLO5 players are tight-passive postflop.

CO's screename is ciombitz.
BTN's screenname is miexxx.

Both unknown, but screennames don't seem very fishy.
Both sitting with 250+ bbs makes me think they're not complete retards.

I've been at the table for an orbit, so no recent history or anything.
Preflop ($0.15) (6 Players)
Hero was dealt A Q
UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.30, CO calls $0.30, BN calls $0.30, SB folds, BB folds
Flop ($1.05) 6 A Q (3 Players)
Hero bets $1, CO calls $1, BN folds
Turn ($3.05) 6 A Q 3 (2 Players)
Hero checks, CO checks
Think his range has a lot of flushes here, given that I block the top two pairs. If he has a straight draw, I don't mind giving him a freebie, because of my nut flush draw.
River ($3.05) 6 A Q 3 4 (2 Players)
Hero bets $2.20, CO raises to $24.73, and is all in, Hero folds, Hero folds
Bet to win money. Fold, because I don't see him shoving the river with worse. He was pretty quick with the shove, like less than 5 seconds.

Spoke to a buddy of mine, and he said he'd snap. Thinking about it, I'm not so sure about it. If I fold Ad here, I pretty much fold everything to a shove (except Ad5d or 7d5d). But I don't know if this is the spot to be thinking about exploitability.

Final Pot
CO wins $7.23

I'm in the same situation as yourself. Totally interested in this.
