reads on UTG?

I don't get why you think you're behind in the hand.

I'd call the flop and re-evaluate the turn.

Doesn't seem too terrible to me, but it's a litle weak. I'd probably call and see if he bets the turn again. With only one person left to act his range likely includes a lot of draws.

WTF? every time I read one of your posts it tllts the hell out of me roggles. I truly don't understand how you can be a winning player if you ever play a hand like this. Either call or raise this flop 100% of the time IMO... I mean honestly, what kind of flop are you looking for? You flopped top 2 and a gutshot draw to the second nuts. How you dont at least call here baffles me. OK. Rant over.

Raising likely only gets action from sets. I agree folding is probably weak, but at these levels this person's range probably isn't wide enough to warrant a raise.

I don't know if I am a winning player ... I think I am better than most people at 0.5/1 and a lot better than most people at 1/2 CAP. But I don't have a particularly large sample on PLO. The only games I know I beat are sit and gos in hold em and HORSE, and stud H/L cash game.

Anyway, as CrushinFelt points out, I think you are putting people at too wide a hand range at these limits. People don't give a lot of action. At 0.25/0.5 limits I am almost positive raising here is bad. People never stack off with anything but the nuts at that limit. I cannot win there because I am not patient enough. I imagine you feel similarly about 0.5/1

from my limited 6k hand sample or so, I must say that I completely disagree with the statement that people only play the nuts..

&lt;sigh&gt; You should know precisely how much you are ahead/behind in every game you play. If you don't, that's a huge leak.

How can you get better if you don't know where you stand?
