Another hand from last nights session. I'm working on going pro, so I want to plug up some leaks.

Seat 1: Fish - Terrible poker player (82.30)
Seat 2: Very Aggressive, NLHE player - (357.05)
Seat 4: Hero (159.30)
Seat 5: Fish (109.75)
Seat 6: Decent LAG (97.75)
Seat 8: LAG (116.65)
Seat 9: Unknown (25.70)

Seat 8 has the dealer button

Seat 9 posts SB
Seat 1 posts BB

Seat 2 raises pot to $1.75


Player notes:

Seat 2 - Action junkie; Will bluff with bottom pair; loves st8 draws; Will bluff all-in
Seat 6 - Overvalues hands; plays made hands hard with no redraw; calling station
Seat 8 - will re-pot preflop when raised; will either shove or fold to aggression; rarely flats; action junkie; slows down when whiffs

Seat 9 - unknown - not a lot of history with this player
Seat 1 - terrible, don't think she's ever had a winning session
Seat 5 - new fish to the game, no notes yet, but plays nearly every hand, seems pretty bad

Action to hero with :8s::tc::as::9c:

I don’t like the LAGs that have position on you. Could probably fold if you think you’ll be sandwiched in between seat 2 and 6 or 8 raising each other. But I’d call and hope it doesn’t get wild preflop and have to fold.

I’d like to just see a flop with a smooth hand.

The note in full says: Always chases the low, sometimes has quads

I don't know when she will be back. She took a pretty good beating last week. I was hoping she had cooled off by now, but it's not looking good.

A fine flat with a good hand. If it gets 3-bet and you can close the action calling that 3-bet, then it's still fine. But if you're caught between a rock and a hard place, you can get out.

This is a good enough hand to flat, not a good enough hand to take to war. I feel this way about 80% of playable Omaha hands preflop I suppose, so my answer isn't that surprising, I guess.

I'm not good at PLO, but this hand seems like it has enough going on to call. Does seat 2's name have something to do with Texas?

No. The #2 seat would be a warrior from a swedish country.

Action was to hero.

Hero decides to pot it against this particular player in the hopes to thin the field.

Hero bets $3.

Seat 5 fish - calls
Seats 6, 8, fold

Seat 1 fish (rhymes with Wagon) calls

Seat 2 pots to $12.25

Action to hero?

Definitely flat here - I still want to see a flop. And how did that thinning the herd work out for hero? I dunno. I’m not sure this is the kind of hand you want to be thinning the heard with.

Well, seats 6 and 8 folded. They are the more competent players at the table.

I’m honestly wondering out loud. I’ve just started taking PLO seriously in the past few months. I’ve done well online, but I still have pretty much everything to learn.

The menu included wrap straight draws, sets with flush draws, and for dessert the ever popular back door flush draw with a turned double open ended straight draw that will brick out.
