Live PLO 5-5. Weak 2pair+gtsd oop

Hi guys. Please let me know if my play on flop and turn was ok.
Blinds are 5-5€. 10max table.
I limped UTG with A245ss (with clubs)
A aggressiv regular guy (with around 1200€ stack) raised pot in middle position.
5 people called, I called (with around 800€ behind).
Pot is around 240 €.
Flop: 924 rainbow with 1 club.
I lead out for 130€. Only the guy called.
Turn:J club.
I bet pot, he moved in, I called.

Standard or did I played somethings wrong?

Re: Live PLO 5-5. Weak 2pair+gtsd oop

Fold Pre: I don't like playing this hand in your position. There are not a lot of nutted hands you can make outside of flush and flopping any combination of two pair can be fairly tricky moving forward as you will not have top 2 in a MW pot (Like the example you posted.

As Played: With $240 in the pot, I lean towards checking to the PFR letting him C-Bet and then Check-Raising Pot on turn if everybody folds or if one person calls before action returns to you.

Short of a 234 turn, this hand can get pretty challenging moving forward. I'd rather get as much money in the pot now while I am assuming I am ahead.

Checking the turn is a reasonable option, depending on villain's range for continuing the flop

J is a bad card in the sense that it connects well with 9xxx hands that might think they are getting too good a price to fold

A bigger flop bet is probably better if hero chooses to lead

Re: Live PLO 5-5. Weak 2pair+gtsd oop

Yeah I guess thats right. 9Jxx hands hits the turn quite often and I don't know, if I could fold my hand after my turn check, if he is potting the turn with his aggression..He is playing very straight forward against me but I can't adjust to his bluffs and valuebets right now..
Live PLO has his own specific dynamic and I just play for one month now and try to find my edge and make some stands against regulars...
I am lost in some few spots atm..

easy fold pre
flop bet is madness
why are you betting pot on the turn?

small mistakes quickly lead to huge ones in plo. rely less on fold equity on more on making the nuts.

Re: Live PLO 5-5. Weak 2pair+gtsd oop

I lead the flop because I though that nobody hit the flop well and I can take it down right now. I had some outs to make a good hand also.
Unfurtenatly, the J of clubs on the turn hit my opponents range of 9Jxx hands well, but I couldn't check/fold anymore so I lead pot and was hopping and praying for a good river card.

Re: Live PLO 5-5. Weak 2pair+gtsd oop

This kind of hand is clear fold pre specially utg. You cannot possibly make top 2 pairs or have straight with redraw.As played i think flop bet is fine. On jc there's apsolutely no point in checking really. Yes he can have 9J but he can have also various straight draws and overpairs with clubs. The main point is there's 500 in the middle and you have 1k left on turn.
Are going to fold if you not hit flush or full house outs? Ibthink stacking off on turn is the best move.
