If you make the low on the turn (2 to 1 against), you can take it all. He cannot win a thing, only half the bets of what have already been put in, and because you put all those bets in, he's not going anywhere, because its one more bet, he has a set, and he has to "see it" since he's getting "such great pot odds" (he's not). This is the optimum situation in Omaha High Low. Pure 100% freeroll. Sure, you can see by the amount of trials that this exact situation isn't going to come up relatively often at all, but it just illustrates perfectly what I've been hammering home about scooping. He might have the best hand by far currently. But if the cards were on their backs and he could choose he should choose to fold his hand.
