      Hi,
      I'm not sure how to use the equilab omaha. I take an example:
      Microgaming - €0.04 PL Hi (6 max) - Omaha Hi - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: 18.5 BB (VPIP: 88.64, PFR: 40.91, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 44)
      BB: 151.25 BB (VPIP: 16.67, PFR: 10.42, 3Bet Preflop: 3.08, Hands: 145)
      UTG: 153 BB (VPIP: 53.97, PFR: 3.23, 3Bet Preflop: 2.70, Hands: 63)
      CO: 100 BB
      Hero (BTN): 152.5 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB, CO posts penalty blind 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 2.5 BB) Hero has A:diamond: K:heart: 9:spade: A:club:

      UTG calls 1 BB, CO checks, Hero raises to 5.5 BB, SB calls 5 BB, fold, UTG calls 4.5 BB, CO calls 4.5 BB

      Flop: (23 BB, 4 players) 5:diamond: 4:heart: A:spade:
      SB bets 13 BB and is all-in, fold, CO calls 13 BB, Hero raises to 75 BB, CO raises to 94.5 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 19.5 BB

      Turn: (225 BB, 3 players) 5:heart:

      River: (225 BB, 3 players) 2:spade:

      First HJ with 54% call and 3% raise limps. So I go to hand selection -> percentile and put in 'Best hands from' 3% to 54%. But how do I chose the order? It's 5-handed, so I put in versus 4 random hands?

      After I raise on the button shall I put in SB's percentiles in the same way, versus 4 random hands? With a raise not all hands are random.

      Here's the calculation I got:

      Board: 5:diamond: 4:heart: A:spade:  5:heart:  2:spade:
                    Equity    Wins    Ties
      MP3: Preflop  26.22%  25.31%   0.91% { 3-54%:4 }
              Flop  11.26%  10.57%   0.69%
              Turn   1.48%   1.48%   0.00%
             River   0.84%   0.84%   0.00%
      CO:  Preflop  21.93%  21.00%   0.93% { 100%:4 }
              Flop  15.65%  14.86%   0.79%
              Turn   1.77%   1.77%   0.00%
             River   1.02%   1.02%   0.00%
      BU:  Preflop  30.46%  29.81%   0.65% { AdKh9sAc }
              Flop  63.14%  63.14%   0.00%
              Turn  95.87%  95.87%   0.00%
             River  97.40%  97.40%   0.00%
      SB:  Preflop  21.40%  20.25%   1.15% { 4.0-40%:4 }
              Flop   9.94%   9.33%   0.62%
              Turn   0.89%   0.89%   0.00%
             River   0.74%   0.74%   0.00%


      Am I doing this right?
      Thanks!

      I use mostly PPP so i'm maybe a n00b with Equilab but i don't think you should worry too much whether the villains range is top x% vs random 1 or random 4 hands. I don't know how to phrase it in english but i think that only thing that changes is range's inner ranking. I mean almost all the same hands are for example in top 40% range vs random 1 than range vs random 4 hands, they are just in slightly different order. Sure there are some differences but i don't believe there's nothing really significant imo. Besides, i don't think that too many players really knows/cares whether some specific hand is in top x% vs random 1 but not vs random 4 and vice versa.

      But like i said, i'm not that experienced with Equilab so i can be horribly wrong. :D

      When you have seen the flop, you shouldn't continue with pre-flop ranges anymore. Excluding some drunken monkeys (or player with really, really small amount money left) nobody goes broke on the flop with 100% of their pre-flop hands. You need to narrow down the ranges from there on.

      EDIT: Sure people (good players) think whether their hand is good in multiway pots if they are entering one, or is their hand good enough vs only one player. More players, more potential to the nuts you gonna need, so maybe there is at least "something" in this vs x players after all.
