re: Poker & AAxx in PLO

I have been experiencing the exact opposite over the last couple days. I've been seeing a lot of 3-bet pots with an SPR near 1 and three people on the flop. In the majority of the cases, It has been me with AAxx, another player with AAxx, and someone with a hand like you list which has about 40%-43% equity depending on suits against our hands. Heck, even random complete trash is still a money favorite against two people holding AA. It has been brutal.
OK, I have only had 44 hands of AAxx this month. But, I am down a little over 2.2 buy-ins from them. This month is showing me how "kind" Omaha can be. I am running $70 below EV (at $10PLO), over 1700 hands. Basically. 40 bb/100 below where I should be. It's only a small sample, but I've seen graphs of things like this going on for ages.
You're running good with AAxx right now. That's awesome. Just don't get too upset if/when it goes the other way and AA never seems to hold up.
