So you guys say it is actually corect to bet without the nuts?

[/ QUOTE ]

You're saying you've never observed a river come high, not filling any obvious draws, and bet with very little other than a feeling that your opponents have bricked?

only when one of 3 criteria apply:
1> you flop top set, or top 2pr., without a str8 or flush draw on board;

or [obvious draw fills]

2> you are heads up... and you bet the river card like it completed your gutshot str8

or

3> the river shows a 3rd flush card and you have the
lone A of that suit [the "bare ace bluff in PLO hi].
An xtreeeemely dangerous move, too.

Hi Borys - The next time you sit in a game, for one random round of the table, keep track of the number of times a hand that is the nuts wins compared to the number of times a hand that is actually not the nuts wins.

I think your question will answer itself.

Borys is being sarcastic.

i've played with him online, his play can be described as semi-maniacal... but with some method to his madness.

Much, much worse. At least if you're, say, working the drive-thru window at McDonald's, you might get to meet some cute girls and sell the occasional bag of weed, of course looking out for the obvious undercover agent or two.

[/ QUOTE ]Thanks Dave - I thought that was probably the case.

But people still read some of those books with the bad advice.

Yes, I was joking [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

Whenever I see a post like

a) is it possible just to play the nuts and still win at PLO8

b) can I play 20 tables of low-limit SNG-s on auto-pilot and make loads of money

c) multi-table holdem NL just for setmining ideas

Th anwser is always NO! There are no free meals, and no easy ways of succeding in poker.

As for PLO8, just like Buzz wrote there is a large grey area of thin value-beting and generally playing decent but not great hands. And of coure the various spots for making moves and bluffing.
