Is it profitable at all to play when their is two flush cards on a flop? I understand how different Omaha is from HE but It just seems like I lose too much money from this situation and should lay more hands down.
Villain A flopped a set, Villain B flopped the Nut FD.
You flopped the nut straight. Villain A is going to happilly bet/raise if he thinks his hand is currently best, and Villain B is going to happily call looking for his flush card.
Last I checked, a straight beats four to a flush, as well as a set. If both of these players are calling/raising your pot-sized bets, and you know you have the best of it, I would consider it a leak in your game to not make the turn more and more expensive at each opportunity.
Once the board pairs or the flush card comes, it's a contest to see how cheaply you can get out of the hand/recalculate your outs.
That's my opinion. If you're made and vulnerable, get it in there. Ultimately your opponent is making the mistake - unless he has something like an open-ended combo draw, in which case you gotta hope he doesn't get made.
