Someone once said in the forum that if a pair shows on the board there is a very good chance that someone is holding a boat. And if it isn't you, then don't bet into the hand.

check: that's 1 error. I think there are at least 4 more.

Not too many PLO players here, I know, but, anyone else? Anyone? Bueller?

Errors:

Raising AA79 pf is a mistake. Both aces unsuited and unconnected so really you have a pair with little chance of improving. Limp it and try for the A.

Kadabra's re-raise pf is trash. He's got a small pair and three of a suit drawing to a non-nut hand. Fold

Rangersioux's call isn't ridiculous. He can be pretty confident he's up against AA's so if he hits he has great implieds.

The all-in by the AA hand is bad on a very wet board.

Anything else?

Mistakes;

1) Baby Humvee folded UTG when he had 6th top pair AND straight draw, AND flush draw
2) Skolpadda posted a ring game question in the torunament analysis section.

Those are the only 2 mistakes I can see.

FYP on 1 (although I don't agree with it) and oops on 2... didn't notice that error.

How many errors does Eoing's limp-call-fold from the button count for?

Folding that flop with that action might have been the right play, but I'm having a hard time thinking of any PLO hands he could be holding where it'd be right to limp-call.

Mistake #1: You are sitting at a .05/.10 with almost $36 in your stack. You must have doubled-up since you sat down. Leave the table and bank your winnings. Then go buy into a different table with a smaller stack. Don't stay and risk losing your whole stack on suckouts - especially at such a loose table.

Well, Kadabra is just throwing away money. That's not even a limping hand, let alone a preflop all-in hand.

RangerSioux's hand is pretty weak. Not unthinkable for a cheap flop, but given a reraise, it's trash.

11nawox11 should have definitely raised again preflop. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Kadabra's all-in was a full reraise, so he can come over the top. He's closing out the action and there's a lot of dead money. Plus, he's going to be first to act after the flop, which is pretty rough with AA. AA is a weak hand going 4-ways in Omaha, but with a big reraise, he can likely isolate.

Post-flop everything seems fine. AA probably has an edge here, even if it's only a slight one, so I like the bet. Could be against a big made hand or a big draw, but it's too much to assume that being first to act.

Oh yeah, and given all the limpers beforehand, I'd just check with AA97 rainbow. Not very likely you'll isolate with that. However, given the folds after the all-in, I think it's worth trying to isolate.
