PLO hands

Happy New Year all.

I've decided to try and blog a few hands per month and hopefully someone will leave a comment. Posted these on RTR as well.

Couple of interesting hand on Terminal Poker.

We're playing 4 handed, DeadEquity is very aggressive over all three streets, the other two are Quite tight passive. Terminal Poker, if you haven't played on it before is like Rush Poker on Full Tilt. As soon as you fold you get placed into the next hand. Unfortunately there's only a limited number of players at the moment so quite often you are on the same table for several hands. Interestingly you do not keep the same position so sometimes you will have position one hand and the next you don't. This is true when five handed more than four. Anyhow, I'm in big blind and get a decent hand. Dead raises pre as I know he is going to. I choose to flat and see a cheap flop knowing I'm OOP but if I hit all the chips will be in by the river. I hit and choose to check fully expecting a bet and with the intention of re raising. My only concern is Untu who I have no reads on.

And here's another one. Again Trollaaja I view as being quite tight and nitty. When he raises I'm happy to flat with 3 left to act. Nothing scares me on the flop so I'm always calling to see a turn card. Unfortunately, turn card leaves me in no mans land as I've now got no clue where I stand in this pot. Got caught in two minds whether to raise or call on turn. Clock runs down really fast on Terminal and when I didn't have a clue what I should do I really should have folded but can you get away from trips? River bet is aaaaaaaaaaarrgghh. What do you do?
