re: Poker & $25 PL O 6-max: Call with trips top kick?
Yeah, I'm not a good Omaha player, but I do read a lot of its theory. And in order to have a dominating hand (ie, not a coinflip) you need redraws or multiple draws on the flop. And its really hard for a hand like AQ72 to flop a hand where you have a strong hand on the flop plus redraws.
This is why hands like QJT9 are so strong. Any flop where you flop top two, you also flop an open ended straight draw, giving you redraws against any other top two pair. Or when you flop the nut wrap (98x board), you also flop a pair, so you don't have to improve in order to win vs. another nut wrap QJT. The redraws you're likely to have are set by your hand preflop.
Thus, preflop, you should value hands by what kind of redraws they can make, and how well the 4 cards work together. Hands like KQJT double suited can obviously be played in all positions, and as you move closer to late position, you can add more hands that are speculative, or don't work as well together.
