Here's a hand I think I misplayed horribly. $1/2 PLO home game, people are super-passive and call-heavy preflop. Limped pot 5-ways, I'm in the BB with QQ52 :r:
Flop: Q♣ 9♦ 9♠
So I insta-checked, semi-aggressive (read: overplays hands) Villain1 in CO bets $9 into $10, loose Villian2 on button calls, it folds to me, and I make it $25.
Villain1's range is skewed towards 9x here, but occasionally will be betting with AQxx, KKxx, and sometimes he even has bad AAxx here (yes, with that preflop action).
Villain2's calling range is wider; any 9x obviously, but also JTxx, ATJx, etc.
I think my raise is a terrible play. There are two ways to correctly play flopped monsters like this multi-way, imo:
1) Lead. Any 9xxx is calling, lots of TJxx are calling
2) Call. If I'm going to play my hand as if I have a draw, then just keep c/c and hope he boats up.
I think option #2 is inferior, because at some point I want to get more money into the pot, and Villain1 may very well check a number of cards behind on the turn or river.
So just bet bet bet -- keep our range wide, let the passive players keep calling while drawing near dead.
