      Hi,

      I am curious as to how you might identify fish in omaha shorthanded.
      Obviously i'm looking for what kind of rules/ranges to add to auto rate.
      I am still quite new to the game and would like some feedback please.

      Thanks

      Look for the guy who shoves and doesn't have a great hand. :f_biggrin:

      There are plenty of different ways you can play PLO profitably. Don't focus on the stats of someone to see if they are a fish.

      Your stats are going to change depending on the stats of the other people, so you might play more hands if there is a fish who doesn't fold post flop.

      Focus on players who shove the flop with weak draws or dodgy hands (like a king high flush with no pair).

      hey Ribbo, if you put your opponent on AAxx,you think is ok to shove pre with rundown?6789ss+

      Is it ok to put the money it with around 50 equity?or depends on your style of play and the risk you take?

      No, I would always use information to my advantage.

      In short version:

      If the guy with AAxx has less than pot for the flop, he will shove 100% of flops. If you can fold at least 1 flop with your rundown, calling preflop is better than shoving preflop.
