    Default 25PLO - top 2 in family pot

    Poker Stars $0.10/$0.25 Pot Limit Omaha Hi - 6 players
    The Official DeucesCracked.com Hand History Converter

    BTN: $10.05
    SB: $20.20
    BB: $75.95
    Hero (UTG): $24.00
    MP: $32.05
    CO: $13.30

    Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is UTG with 9 Q K Q
    Hero raises to $0.75, MP calls $0.75, CO calls $0.75, BTN calls $0.75, SB calls $0.65, BB calls $0.50

    Flop: ($4.50) 8 9 K (6 players)
    SB checks, BB checks, Hero


    Do I really want to bet top 2 here on such a drawy flop 6 way? I'd be happy to stack with one of the 2 short stacks, but don't want to play a big pot with any of the deeper stacks, unless it's on a dry turn. Or am I thinking about this wrong?

    Also, what do you think about the raise pre? The pot is rarely 3bet at these stakes so I'll get to see the flop often. Maybe just fold?

    bet/fold $4 unless it's against the half-stacks and if it gets heads-up to the turn and a blank runs off then you can just stick as much in the middle as you can

    agree with spenda.

    Vs a passive table I would not fold pre and would raise.

    That sounds like a good line.

    I checked, it went, check, shorty pots, other shorty calls, fold, fold, action on me with one behind.

    Best decision now flat and look for non heart or TJQ turn, or just shove it in? Seems like marginal decision but I'd have to imagine there is always a flush draw here.

    I don't use propokertools or w/e but I probably should, could help in spots like this to look at different ranges, but if you currently have the best made hand I think the worst equity I can get for you is like ~33% so with that action just stick it in and hope they have a lot of blockers and both have fds or something.
