      No idea how the action went but it probably got shoved preflop since AA should be able to get away from that flop quite easily 3 handed.

      I can see what MP thought there on the river.

      "Shit, he got he flush! No! I have a straight flush! Wohoo, in your face sucker!!!!
      [pot goes to BB]
      What the...?! FUFUFUFUFUUFUFUUFUUU!!!!!"

      I can't imagine the percentage of omaha hands that end up with someone losing with a straight flush but it must be absolutely miniscule.

      Can any math geek figure out if it's "easier" to lose with straight flush in holdem or in plo?

      Probably: MP raise pf, SB 3-bet, BB coldcall, MP called.
      SB shoved flop, BB called or shoved and MP shoved or called.

      Funny thing about straight flushes, is that novice players might not realize they have hit straight flush if it is not that obvious (I used to consider b/f straight flush on paired board, finally decided that player might be bluffing and for my surprise pot was sent my way and I was accused slowrolling :) )

      I'm a PLO newbie and quite often tend to miss the fact that I've got Full House, when let's say my other 2 cards are distracting me by making straights or something :f_biggrin:

      Hah so sick. I would advise a turn raise... No set is folding, nutflush is jamming, and it would suck if board pairs and nutflush folds the river.

      Regards,

      Thanks Skod, youre ofcource totally right about that advice, childish mistake and the hand is played very poorly by hero. Must've been some kind of panic mode which hits with supernuts, hold em instincs take over and forces slowplaying and missing tons of value :)
