      Hero ??

      With this villain's line - limp, call pf, c/r flop, I can only see 99, bluffs, maybe a 44, maybe (much less) slowplayed aces. Even tho I didn't know much about him - he started tight and had just became very LAG (very small sample tho).

      (it's a 6max table, dunno why the "player 10" insteadof 1-6)

      Hi.

      With a set i prefer slowplaying. With top two i think both options are fine. If my top two was less vilnerable (kq on kq4) i would be likelier to slowplay too. Here i think 3betting flop is fine.

      Sorry, guys, my bad. Should I re-post it in the NLH section or forget about it?

      New year's resolution: only post real 4 card PLO hands in the PLO area. And I'm keepin it!

      I really hate when fish just c/minr cus they tend to be pretty strong when they do that for most part but every once in a while you see fish that do that with draws. I think both options are fine also I prob call.

      Thanks for your opinion! You mean 4bet, right?

      I've ended up shoving, as I thought his range had more bluffs/FD and I didnt want to face him reppin a flush OTT. Bad? is it playing scared?

      Is this a good spot for villain to check-raise bluff?

      No he means 3bet, You put in 2.20 (1st bet) player 6 c/r to 4.40 (2nd bet), hero x (3rd bet) I think shoving is a mistake here cus we love value from flush draws. I think making it something like 9$ is fine here and then just shoving turns.
