$1,500 pot limit Omaha hilo

Levy raises the cutoff, I have   Two Diamonds in the big, and raise the pot to 1,900. He calls

Flop is three diamonds Two Clubs (A mess; low counterfeited, a pair of twos. And worse, given I will have A2 alot to three bet, then it looks bad for my range)

I definitely consider bluffing. He should have A2 and A3 some amount of the time. The argument for bluffing is that it would be best with a small bet to make him fold his counterfeited hands, and so I get good price on the bluff. The other arguement is that if I check, I give him the easiest invitation ever to take the pot.

I think it's just about a check though. I check, he bets pot, I fold

19k at first break.

$1,500 pot limit Omaha hilo

(From the previous table)

I raise the lovely   three diamonds Two Clubs to 1,000 UTG. Just the small blind calls. He has played very tight; hasn't made any mistakes.

Flop is the lovely . (Wheel; nut low and a straight)

It's actually the worst wheel to make- it's the least disguised board, and I am supposed to have A2 alot. And of course the monotone board gives him more chance to beat me for high.

So the question is how to go getting two streets of value against the hands that I beat both ways. Three streets of value seems very unlikely- it would have to be against a set and low,which both misses and cry-calls the river.

And if it's two streets of value that I'm going for, then I think it's right to check the flop. When I check the flop and bet the turn, it should be obvious that I'm more likely to have it, but I'm not sure it will be. This is a game where in most pots, you are thinking about protecting your hand on dynamic boards- people are not in the mode of thinking about value lines on static boards.

Anyway, he quickly folded the turn, but kind of interesting decision.

Out. Big one, close one. I have . Two limps at 500bb, I limp. Guy in HJ raises pot to 3,300. They both call.

It's close. The re-entry option (whilst it is a mistake to use it as an excuse to make clear minus-EV calls) is a factor. I think even without it, I'm just about right to call. In an equity calculator, giving the raiser AA and the other two hand on the 20%ile, then I have 23.5% equity. And of course it's better as I get the clearest decisions, given I'm polarised to very good flops and very bad flops.

It is a very good flop.

 (8 outs to straight, queen high flush draw, open ended straight flush draw. And pair of tens for two trip outs)

So the only  bad spot is if I run into a better current hand, AND one of the two higher flush draws (albeit there is less of a factor that I block other flush draws, as the most likely spade combos are   two spades and ). Although, slightly surpsingly, my hand against AA with spades  is actually as good as 45%.

I bet the pot (14k) from my 22k. I get it in against the raiser. He does indeed have the AA with spades. He has .

Turn is not good. . I do not river a straight flush.

Have re-entered, new table looks strong with Jon Turner, Rob Campbell and Soulier

Kind, wise, elderly and gentleman?

Hope you backed the 4 singles, at least you get a small return.

Another nasty all in.

Folded to our blinds, small has 11k and raises to 1,300. I have   two spades .

You're never an at all substantial favourite in this game, but I think it's right to push my edge.

We get it in. He has three diamonds.(Despite what looks like alot of dominance, I'm only about 55%)

Flop is

(beautiful; nut low, nut flush draw. AK high is actually currently good)

Turn is . (Not good. He takes the lead for high. I need a king or heart for high. But I'm very safe for low; only one of two aces, or one of 3 deuces counterfeits me)

River is the classic PLO8 beat. I  get counterfeited by   Two Diamonds.

Ouch. 14k

$1,500 pot limit Omaha hi lo

Out. Lost 4/4 all ins today.

Pads opens hijack to 2k, I defend two spades .

Flop is (bottom two pair,  third nut low draw)

I check, he bets 1,800 into 4,400. I have 12k. It's close. My low draw makes my hand look better than it is, because it's unlikely to be good if we do get it in.

I think I have to go with it though. I pick up the 6,200 for free top often for it not to be right.

I pot, he calls, and has two hearts. (Pair of Jacks, nut low draw, nut flush draw)

Him having diamonds is ugly. But I'll now have about 40% equity still.
 
Turn is . (He makes low. He needs a T,6, J or diamond to scoop. I need an ace to scoop)

He gets there for the scoop with a river of

$10,000 razz

Potentially not the most encouraging start to today's 10k razz event. I enter the Amazon room, and a security guard stepped across and barked at me "NO SPECTATORS SIR."

I don't know what I was meant to not be spectating, but I would love it to be the razz
