Default $15/$30 hand, very simple

these situations seem to come up for me all the time..

assuming no reads, is this how everyone plays it? call 3-bet on turn, re-evaluate (fold) bad turn? seems that capping the flop or calling the turn would be incredible spew-age, but maybe others disagree?

also in a typical online game is anyone smooth-calling here to disguise the hand?

$10/$15 Limit Omaha Hi/Lo
8 players

Hi Dave - Yeah.

Nice starting hand, but then you missed the flop.

So you take a stab at stealing but that doesn't work and you get raised. But now you're getting almost 10 to 1 to call, and so you (of course) call. Fine.

And then you dump on the turn when, out of position, you miss. Fine.

I don't see anything you did wrong.

Tough luck.

IMO theres definatly nothing you did wrong at all... occasionally i do slow play mosters such as thiis one, but in order for me to do it i have to be fairly certain that others will do the pre-flop raising for me, such as often does happen in ultra aggresive mid-limit games.

Cant call turn unless have super read on villian, capping flop out of position is also a bit reckles to say the least.. on the odd occasion if it were reveresed, as in villian bets, you raise, he three bets, i may occasionally cap it to try to get the free turn card though
