    Terp, on your last hand I think we bet half pot on the turn and block the river for 1/3-1/4 pot. The 1/2 pot bet may also induce a raise on occasion or a protection bet/raise from the rare value combos. While our particular combo likes to pot the turn deeper and shallower, the given SPR has us making mistakes on the river as we don't really know the bluff frequency. Because we have the K ♥️ we can safely fold a block bet getting raised on the river. As you say the villain has a lot of ♠️ draws and we can safely ✔️ fold those often too. I think a strategy like this will be higher EV vs many villain strategies. We also keep weaker hands in the villains range. We might even bluff ♥️ on straight cards if we get a good read.

    Don’t like the c/c river line on the last hand. These spots are super polarized especially when a villain verbally says “pot”. I think this is a check/fold. $900 is still a “big bet” SS PLO and I just don’t see enough villains with he heart to bluff here at a high enough frequency

    Hey guys, thanks for the response. I don't really like my line on the river either. I prefer the suggestion of @DrSpace to fire out a bet that can either A) Clean out a possible hand that beats us by leveraging the Kh, or B) Allow us to fold to a "no chance this is a bluff" raise and preserve around $450-$500 of our stack.
