      Hey guys,

      I'm making the transition from hold'em to omaha and I need a little help. What are the spots for checking back a hand in omaha. For instance in 3betpots IP.

      What are the right spots to checkraise when we are out of position. For example on the turn when whe Cbet the flop OOP.

      Board texture is a lot more important in Omaha. If you 3 bet preflop you can't bet a flop that is hard to rep.

      So if you 3 bet your aces and the flop comes 578 with 2 hearts and you don't have hearts, don't expect your cbets to work.

      The only time you can really check back the flop is when you flop the stone nuts and have an SPR of around 3 (which means you can still get stacks in by betting the turn and river)

      How about situations where hero flops some equity but cant really stand a checkraise against aggressive player?
