Ok so a lovely flop for me ... decide to check and get some action ... lad bets but all others fold ... turn a brick ...so decide to make it look like it hits me big ( lad might have just a low draw so big i can represent ) so bet max which leaves me 94c ... river comes and another brick ... and im a bit sick ... so all i can do is shove in my 94c .. and WOW WOW WOW ... he folds ... yep he folds for 94 chips and im back in buisness

Yeaaah i love when they fold for less one BB and you win with a HUGE BLUFF ) i mean NUTS PAIR on that board. probably he thins is low than you and if he didn't hit anything good i think he save some chips but i think that could be a miss click too, but who care, you win congrats. U hit FT ? or even ITM ?

Posted by yout85: I can only assume he was holding A3XX, with no pair at the end and no low at all... even though it was only 94 chips, they had to fold.
Obviously... they should've got them all in on the turn.
Well I woulkd also fold if I had nothing or a very low pair when playing omaha. Even if it s just 93 chips, if your sure you re gone loose, better fold. It s the same as a tight player reraises yuo when you have toppair, probably he has at least 2 pair or a set so also a fold is the best move there

I don't know a lot about plo8 but isn't checking pretty much always a bad idea, unless you have the ultimate nuts? I think i'm always betting for value/protection there. It's only bottom two pair and the nut low, but lows don't always get there (as proven) and bottom two is pretty vulnerable. Just me tho, as i said i don't know a lot only played a few plo8 tourneys. But yeah he played that pretty bad. He should of got it in on the turn.

well i didnt make the money ... was up from a cash the previous day and when close to the bubble and a raise into me and next reraise all in .. i was looking at a pretty ok hand decided if i called and raiser called there would be a 27K pot ... as it was i might min cash with my stack but decided to go for a big pot .. if i loose all ok as was up from previous day and if i won would set me up good to reach the final table ... lost the pot so that was the end of that game
as for folding in that situation ... i would never fold ever ever ever .... with so much in the pot makes no sense even if i had nothing 94c to see a pot of 6096c auto call Had one situation like this after calling flop and turn realised lad only had 300c left and he pushed them all in on river ... again bigg pot and i had nothing only A high and i had fair amount of chips called to see his hand ... and won with A high as he missed his draw ... could have lost but i would have seen what he was betting with so would have being worth it

Steffi - With no high hand and no low, the odds would've been 1/0 - meaning even a bet of 1 chip wouldn't give you the correct odds to call... The mistake was made on the turn by not getting all in when the odds would've been (quite obviously) in their favour to stump up the extra 90, or whatever it was.
Bullettooth - Bottom two pair in PLO8 is not a betting hand, but bottom two pair with the nut low draw as well, I would bet. The aim of PLO8 is always to win BOTH pots. Two pair is the average winning hand for the high, so bottom two pair is unlikely to win.
