Thanks, very good point. Lets make one point clear: In HE, depending on reads, position SSs, etc., any two cards are playable
and winnable. Shoving PF SS in a tourney situation a case in point, also Cbetting dry or wet boards, floating etc...if you deny them good odds, they should fold. In PLO, any four cards are not playable
unless they have strong potential, because shoving pre or bluffing postflop are way less profitable/instantly winnable. Redraws are getting odds in PL to stack you if they catch.
Talkin the TAG line here, I know some people think any 4 will do...
sry for deleting the rest of yr post jazz but that is right too...
