Game is playing fairly loose with neutral aggression in the 1.5 hours that Hero has been there. Hero's image is winning but fairly neutral. The straddle and MP seem like decent PLO players. Button keeps rebuying short and getting it in marginal.
Stack sizes below.
$6 Straddle is on. Hero completes J4Jd2d in BB. We go 7-way to the flop!!
Flop ($45) Ad Jc 3c. Hero checks first to act. MP ($700) bets $45. Button ($200) calls. Hero (covers) calls. Straddle ($1000) calls.
I don't really like my play here. Do you prefer a lead into the field or a c/r?
Turn ($225) Ad Jc 3c Td. Hero and Straddle check. MP pots $225, leaving $430 back. Button calls off his last $200. Hero? The Straddle ($950 left) still seems interested.
Do we like a call here with our set and BDFD to realize equity? Or is there merit to shipping to force out the straddle and clean-up outs? We know MP would call, likely with KQxx, but we have up to 18 outs versus that hand.
