(blinds $0.25/$0.50) Pot Limit Omaha Hi -
(real money) -- Seat 5 is the button
Seat 1: MP1 ($5.25 in chips)
Seat 2: MP2 ($24.75 in chips)
Seat 4: Lp ($31.50 in chips)
Seat 5: Button ($17.50 in chips)
Seat 6: Hero ($57.75 in chips)
Seat 7: BB ($57.75 in chips)
Seat 8: UTG ($34.00 in chips)
Seat 9: UTG+1 ($15.50 in chips)

my only real read here is on LP who is very LAG

hero : Post Small Blind ($0.25)
BB: posts big blind ($0.50)
Dealt to hero [ Ah As Th 6c ]
UTG: Raise ($1)
UTG +1 : Call ($1)
MP 1 : Fold
MP2: Call ($1)
Lp : Call ($1)
Button: Fold
hero : Raise ($6.25)
BB : Call ($6)
UTG: Call ($5.50)
UTG+1 : Fold
MP2: Fold
Lp : Raise ($30.50)
hero : Raise ($51.25)
BB : Fold
UTG: Call All-in ($27.50)
*** FLOP *** : [ 9s Kh Qh ]
*** TURN *** : [ 9s Kh Qh ] [ Kd ]
*** RIVER *** : [ 9s Kh Qh Kd ] [ 2s ]

results in white:
<font color="white"> LP lost $31.50 (showed hand) [ 7s 6s 8d 8h ] (two pair, kings
and eights)
hero bet $57.75, collected $128.75, net +$71 (showed hand) [ Ah As Th 6c ] (two pair, aces and kings)
UTG lost $34 (showed hand) [ 5h 6d 6h 7d ] (two pair, kings and sixes)

my thoughts during this hand were:
a: that six i've got is kind of a dangler
b: this guy (LP) is trying to pick up the pot
c: i've gotta go allin here to have a chance of getting this heads up
d: lookit all those kings: I'm screwed
e: holy crow, i won!
f: i wonder if that was dumb?

So what do you think? also, is my post in the right format? i'm still figuring out how to post hands. any help will be appreaciated.

Format is ok, play is good. I might not always pot it there PF, but if I know it will get reraised I raise for certain. The only way you're ever in trouble is if someone else also gets AAxx and then your equity is rather low.

it's the right play with suited Aces but the variance is rather high. Expect to lose mcuh more often than you would in holdem. You're usually a 55-65% favorite heads up depending on opponents hand and multiway you usually have the best equity.
