maybe in a $3 tournament betting the river is ok because people will be bad and call with worse/no-hands etc.
betting this river against anyone competent without a very good reason to is a huge mistake and where I get a lot of my edge in split pot games.
really though? everyone ive asked all said its super standard raise?
it's horrible. you should never be getting called by worse.
you might get A2xx to fold, but it doesn't matter because you quarter them anyway so you don't mind if they call, but then you hate your life when they pull the trigger and jam.
that's all in a vacuum ofc, there might be good reasons to with history, etc etc.
People play PLO8 the abs worst, you're getting called by trips, worse flushes, straights, two pair hands and even just the nut low with no high. Besides, you pot A3xx (where xx makes you a full house) right? People never fold A-2 in my experience, flatting this river is akin to burning money, are you only going to raise nut-nut hands on the river? Really?
Spence, our equity on the flop isn't huge here and getting c/raised makes us hate life. The most important thing imo about PLO8 is being prepared to check back flops a lot of the time when we don't have ridic strong hands. We don't want people folding their worse low draws on the flop if they don't have anything else.
