Game is 5/5 PLO 200-1000, end of night and we are playing 4 handed. Two big fish, myself, and another decent reg who is main Villain in this hand. Villain is kind of nitty and we both have played probably 10 decent sessions together in past few months. He knows I think hes a nit and he views me likely as someone that is capable and makes moves frequently.
I straddle CO to $10 and pick up Js9s8c4c
SB (Villain - $1000 stack) makes it $30, BB folds, I call ($950 stack), Button calls ($200 stack).
Flop ($95) 8s4s3d
Villain checks, I bet $75, Villain calls $75 out of turn before button acts, then Button shoves for $170 total, Villain thinks for about 30 seconds and then decides to call the $95 more, Hero?
Is this an easy raise or do I call and play turns in position against Villain in a protected pot?
I decided to raise pot which was to almost $700 leaving me roughly $220 behind.
Let me know your thoughts. I'm reasonably new to PLO so any input appreciated.
