Bovada-Omaha MTT ICM Question????
Recently played one of Bovada
's Summer Millions events; PLO 6 max 5k GTD. About 210 runners, get down to 4 left, and I end up 4th in chips with 200k, while 3rd had about 220k, and the other 2 stacks were over 500k.
Prizes are about $500 for 4th - $700 for 3rd - $900 for 2nd - and 1250$ for 1st
I will just give brief overview of the hand - I'm SB, I complete, 220k stack is BB. I flop the nut flush draw and lead out, they both call. I hit the Nuts on the turn, I check, BB bets the turn, Big Stack puts in a raise and I shove allin, BB goes allin and the big stack calls, and the board pairs on the river giving the big stack a boat and shipping the hand, busting us both and giving me 4th place. BB had 2nd nut flush, big stack flopped a set.
My friend was telling me that it was an easy fold for me because of ICM. I don't play Omaha that much but nuts on the turn seems pretty strong. Obviously, I understand nuts on the turn is not the same as nuts on the river but can I really fold there? Also how was I to know that the BB was also going to shove allin. Probably should have lead the turn, but not sure if that changes anything either. It is an ICM nightmare but can I really get away and should I be getting away?
