You played it well. Villain made 3 mistakes.

I think checking the flop is significantly better than betting. Your hand is mediocre and hates to get raised.

Probably yes. Also, people play massively straight-forwardly in low stakes so I guess there is little to fear in betting. That being said, OP's rationale behind betting is wrong. Being in position with a decent hand is not a great reason to bet.

Re: Big Easy: How badly did I play this?

Thanks for the thoughts. I thought if I checked the flop, he's going to be auto-betting the turn, given he raised pre. When he called, and the turn improved my hand, I decided to continue betting, not expecting to get re-popped by the bottom end of the straight and a non-NL hand. But perhaps I'm guilty of not thinking carefully about what he's calling OTF with. A2 seems obvious, but what percent of the time should we give credit for spiking a straight when he's holding that many cards? Is that an adjustment from the 4 and 5 card varieties I'm simply failing to make?

You make it sound like it's a problem. You can call nearly any turn against a range that you perceive very wide.

You are correct to bet-getin the turn. He is definitely not.

Thanks! I haven't played much online in years (and even my live play has been limited to a few times a year). Pandemic is changing that, LOL.

Played fine...though I would check the flop most of the time depending on my opponents.

Sounds to me like a standard bad beat Omaha hand...which explains why everyone at the Omaha hilo tables are always so cranky and complaining!
