A bit of history..... around 50 left, and I (ruudi_dg) and villain are 3rd and 2nd in chips respectively with the average around 20k. Have been at table together for about one orbit, and have played one hand together where I opened pre, he re-raised, I folded my low rundown and he showed AAQ5.
He seemed like a decent player, and I think my image will have been only playing decent hands, unlikely to stick it in on a draw. (one all in seen with him at table, I flopped middle set, doubled up a micro stack who had a flush draw).
So,the hand in question...

Can I have thoughts and opinions on the whole hand for both players please? Pre and Post Flop.
Thanks in advance. I went on to bink the tournament, and this hand gave me a huge chip lead in a great spot. But this hand has been bugging me for some reason.

I am not exactly a PLO player but I pretty much hate everything in that hand...
Think I prefer to check pre but raise is understandable and ok sometimes...
The flop is pretty bad for your hand though you can be ahead occasionally, getting all in on this flop is gonna be a losing play long term. Check calling a bet on the flop can be ok against the right opponent but would prefer to have a read that the villain can spazz out as theres a metric asston of scare cards that will make it near impossible for us to continue with the hand...
The turn is a pretty decent card for us and I would likely take a check/call line vs a spazz or a check/shove line vs a tighter player who may fold some of his holdings...

I don't like the raise pre as I don't think I will be getting enough of my stack in to make it worth telegraphing my hand, especially as I will be oop. It just makes it too easy for opponents to play perfectly post flop.
On the flop it is never, ever a check raise for me. Your hand is nowhere near strong enough for that. I am bet/folding a lot here or sometimes check/calling one and re-evaluating on the turn. I don't think your opponent did much right here either but it's not enough to play a hand less badly than opponent. _________________ "Brandon Uhl @BrandonUhl
