This is a discussion on $2 PLO 6-max: Top set ok on drawy board, is it ok to check to induce within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Ok little info about the players, the 1st raiser is constantly raising ATC, and calling 3 bets pre, the rest of the table follows suit
$2 PLO 6-max: Top set ok on drawy board, is it ok to check to induce
Ok little info about the players, the 1st raiser is constantly raising ATC, and calling 3 bets pre, the rest of the table follows suit because
A) he/she loves raising..And spazzying out on flops
B) because he never folds to Cbets on flops irregardless of who's betting or not
The other 2 players are alittle different, the 2nd callers is a pretty over all fishy/splashy player, but only against ppl who are short stacked and/or he thinks he can over power them
the button player is very loose calling type of station, and loves shoving on draws, but hates calling with draws...
Now acouple of questions
A) was my check except-able knowning that had I bet they would only called but because I checked, I knew like 95% sure that either UTG would take a stab at it, and or one of the other players?
B) Is my limp raise pre ok also, or should I drop that also? If you must know why I did that btw, was because BB player was 100% raising and then calling light with ATC pre, but the other players in the hand would only call with decent holds and/or 4 bet pre with AA/KK and also he would only 4bet pre with AA/KK but call with everything else

You'd rather just lead. You are the preflop aggressor, and you'd like to trap in as much dead money as possible.
If it checks to the button, it leaves you in an awkward spot of check/raising the field out of the hand. If you lead this board, you still have a wide range, and could have aces, top pair + flush draw, and many other weaker hands that would lead this flop.

Yea agreed with C9 I prefer to just lead on the flop.
Secondly, Im not sure I agree with the line preflop. Hand isnt that strong and is not going to be playing that well OOP against multiple players, I would rather just see the flop with it. If players are as bad as you say, you will get the money in regardless later on.
