$5 PLO Heads-up: Turned straight vs a Mega Nit
Ok, I got myself stuck in a spot, and what I'm wondering is acouple of questions..
A) Besides the obivious (Fold pre), which I had my reasons for not folding pre
1) They folded to everything I did
2) I'd have them fold on flop with 1 cbet
I know all these sound like excuses (For getting myself into this mess)
What I'm wondering is did I play the hand well? If I played it badly, then besides preflop (Which I know is a big NO NO, Even though I had a plan for the hand)..
What could I have done to either A) Make them fold (Which I highly doubt, with the way I was playing) B) Cuz they had to have a set (I mean what else plays this hand this way)?
Now on the flop, what's the right play here? Is it to check? Bet? What? I choose to bet 2 pair+inside and they Auto raised "Quickly", This let me know 2 things A) they have Set not a straight (Why not a straight), well everytime this player had a straight, they made it look like a straight with a "POT SIZE BETS"....Could they have changed up there game, sure/maybe/I mean it's possible..
Now the flop...I want to know exactly what could I do on this flop? I mean I bet they raised, and I called...Turn is the card I wanted...Now what's the option...
We could (Like I chose to do bet), but when the RR comes back at us...What's my option...I really thought about Shoving or repotting the turn on them (But I knew they weren't going anywhere)...So is a call really awful? If yes, then I'm assuming because Irregardless of the river outcome (WE HAVE THE NUTS AT THE MOMENT, AND SHOULD "TRAP" AS MUCH DEAD MONEY IN
