Re: *~* Quick Checkup Thread - PLO flavour *~*

The trouble with shoving is that you only really get action the times you're not in good shape... I mean are you just raising to try to get him to fold a random Ace? Or a better flush draw with no pair? This case is fairly unusual because your draw is so huge you're probably about 70% to hit a straight or flush by the river, so you could almost slow-play it. I guess what I'm saying is your hand has so much value you don't really need to fold out the "air" part of his range with a raise (you can do that on a later street anyway). And you've got position to play with. I'm all for playing draws aggressively, but in this case the ace on the board changes things a bit.
