View Full Version : Was I too fast to get the money in?

Hi guys,
First post so go easy /images/graemlins/smile.gif


1) Should i be reraising this preflop. I felt after the hand that i should have, but was a little confused by the first reraise before me.

2) Was I a little quick to pot it on the flop, or should i have just flat called, 3x his bet, or what?
It was a near perfect flop, (baring me holding KK and a K72 board) since i held the 34 aswell, so anyone calling to draw to their wheel has their odds of hitting decreased substantially.

3) Potting the turn, putting him all in? Not entirely sure why i did this. Villain thought about calling the flop bet for a hell of a long time. I put him on 77, or 22 if he was really bad. Obviously there were no draws. I'm pretty sure potting the turn was the wrong play, so what was the correct bet here?

Edit: I just realised there were draws on the turn...

You should had reraised it preflop, otherwise well played. Almost never concider slowplaying in omaha unless you flop quads or a str8flush and sometimes a big overfull (eg. KKK33) but don't often slowplay that hand either because you can catch someone with a 3 that give you action (especially at the lower limits where folks often calls a lot of bets drawing to one-outers...)

To me the flopraise seem a little steep, noone without the sevens or perhaps twos would call that, and if they have sevens or deuces they are sure gonna pay you off later anyway. I would probably raise to around 5 or 6 instead since you will have the nuts on the turn 37 times out of 45, so I want people to call here, not drive them out just yet.
Otherwise I like your play. /images/graemlins/smile.gif

I think you played fine, except probably you should reraise preflop.

Not to be results oriented, but you did take a guy for his whole stack which is what you want to do...
