Default Re: Trying to learn PLO

OK, that's what I was thinking you were thinking. Anyway, I'm going to disagree on this one. I think the call PF by the Kings was perfectly sound - as you can't remove the straights/flushes/two pair combos from the equation. That's why he's only a 2.3-to-1 dog preflop. If it was just a hold 'em scenario then yes, the Aces are a monster fave. over any other pair, which is why you need the implied odds of hitting a set to justify a call.

That's not the case in Omaha. Seems like the Kings has an overlay for this sort of money, given that he is calling $26 to win $103 - or 4-to-1.
And the stack sizes seem enough to call on that basis as well. I'd call - otherwise you'd be leaving too much money on the table folding here. Although the bigger the stacks the better.
