re: Poker & PLO8 Math Question
I'm not a math wizard but on the other side of the situation, I would just offer that having A2xx is not reason enough to pursue every street, or even past the flop, if your hand is not balanced (two-way) and/or with a backup to the nut low in case you are counterfeited, for the reason you stated: being quartered.
In many cases, folding A2xx, especially when you foresee the pot growing too large, is the better choice post-flop, when you consider that at most, you are aiming for 1/2 of the pot.
Our goal in PLO8 should always be to scoop, or at least win 3/4 of, the pot.
Best success to you as you move forward, Larry.
