    As a non-Omaha player I'm very interested in how this strategy would change in PLO hi.

    Hero has AATh4h --- 9d6h3c on the flop

    We're 3 ways vs 1 short stack & another player with 40bb. Commentary suggests to ignore the short stacked player.

    It seems like you're saying "whatever you would normally do HU & OOP vs the 40bb stack you'll do in this 3 way situation as well."

    I'm curious to know which situations a short stacked player would influence your decision process.

    I normally play LHE and often times a shortstacked player who's basically committed will make it easier for me to value bet because their entire preflop range is giving us 3 way equity up to their effective stack.

    To me this short stacked player does influence my decisions, whether they have slightly less than a pot sized stack remaining, or something as small as 1-3 bbs.

    Why is Omaha different in this regard?

    It would be great another kind of similar video, not only with aces but about 5-10% of the PLO8 hands, in S&G's.
    By the way, great video!

    in case above, of course short stack can't force you to change your decision to shove, moreover I definately think even if he had ~20bbs, for me it is 100% shoving situation, because your hand is so strong and flop is good enough

    to all^^
    thanks for your comments and feedback, I glad that you like the video )
