How much significance should be given to a straight flush when holding a nut flush (on certain board textures). Should I be sigh paying the straight flush off against Rocks and unknowns when it does get raised? Since I know they do not have the nut flush blocker what can they be bluffing with? Straight flush blocker?
What about when it goes bet, Raise (with nut flush blocker) Call, on the flop. And they continue betting on the turn? Call, Call? on none pairing card.
Happens more than you think in PLO?
Anyone of you lot gone with the straight flush blocker and totally owned someone?
At high stakes does the straight flush blocker ever get used say like 1 in 7 of the times it is held. Or something GTO?

The last hand I was thinking of was 0.1/0.25.
I had a wrap 13 card with the nut flush blocker on flop. It went check it aggressor and bet/call. Totally normal.
Turn gave me the nut straight but was a cool card since it brought the flush and I also had the NUT Flush blocker.
I checked behind when checked to. This was standard for me since I had showdown able hand was beating straight, two pair and sets that called flop. Sometimes people just hero hero these spots with flushes so cheap and fruitful showdown on the agenda.
The river was then bet but like 1/4 of pot. This was a snap pot decision really can not rep nuts well but I could check behind nut flush if I have the board crushed with top 2 or a set in addition to give protection to bluff line. Or just once in a blue moon check to protect this bluffy line.
Then I got reraisied. Is this ever a Chuck Norris? Villa was unknown. Low flush makes sense (with the blocker). The 1/4 pot giving cheap price. When raised can rep huge by reprising knowing the opponent probably has the ace.
Yeah obviously an unknown will have it. So easy fold?
Sometimes find myself being a Hero folding. Sometimes call and they always have it.
Anyhow just one of those PLO spots, I am not sure of the correct strategy.
Just bet thin fold to raise could be the strategy but this seems a little exploitable when raised.

Don't see this much online, but live you tend to see this play when both players have deep stacks.. 10c/25c really going to be tough pulling off blocker bluffs at these stakes.. As many players really just playing omaha at these levels having no clue that the 6 high flush is going 2 be bad.
