Really unusual spot - what would YOU do?
I played a Live Omaha MTT last week.
Please forget that it was Omaha, as this situation could happen in any game, & was quite a difficult decision. It could not happen Online, ever, so those who mostly play Online might struggle with the etiquette & ethicacy on this one.
We are mid-Tourney, I am first to act on the flop, & there are FOUR players behind me still in the pot.
I have 10-J-Q-K, the flop is 8-9-2 rainbow. That's a cracking Omaha hand on this Flop, I have outs galore, & we have all options open to us. I'm happy to go broke here, actually, & play it aggro.
Whilst I am perusing how best to play this - initially favouring betting the Pot - the chap to my immediate left - an elderly Gent - lifts his cards up, almost to his face, to see them better.
The mind is a strange thing. I want NOT to look, not to see them, but I can't help it, they are there, just to my left, & I can see them clearly. I am seat 3, Chap is Seat 4, the other 3 players are all opposite us, so THEY can't see what I've seen.
And my man has top set, 9-9-x-x in his hand......
What would you do now?
