Re: PLO8 ECOOP 2nd and 4nuts, how to play?

Haven't read the other responses yet, but I like a check-call here, hoping to get two lows involved. Ideally, the turn is a club, or a non-diamond. If the turn is not a diamond and you're HU or...

Re: What exactly does \"time\" mean?

The decider has either 30 or 60 seconds to act or their hand will be declared dead.

Re: Limit tourney raise all in or fold?

Without further information on the raiser, this is a pretty lousy hand. See if you can get a suited ace wheel in the next round and push those instead.

If the raiser is a jackass, push.

At 20M, I would consider folding this hand unless I knew the villains tendencies very well. I might flat call here and set mine, if I was closing the action. If my M were lower, I might consider...

Re: PLO8 Tourny hand...

You raised and c-bet, so a check on the turn may appear suspicious. There is no card you fear on the river, right? Also, if you check the turn, you can still get villain all-in on the river, yes?

Re: Big O (5 Card Omaha 8)

If this is pot-limit, I would think that you'd need to be looser pre-flop and tighter post-flop in multi-way pots than you would with four cards.

If it is limit with a loose crowd, I suspect you...

Re: PL08 6 handed, How do you play this?

Not leading is not so bad, esp if it get worse hand to river call something they might turn-fold. Did you have much info on the villain's tendencies?

Re: PL08 6 handed, How do you play this?

I think UTG+1 was making a crying call, so a turn PSB might have scared him off. However, that's too results-oriented.

Broadly, I think the chances of one hand crushing you here are thin and...
