Dabbling in 5-5 PLO and found myself in spots, really not sure how to best proceed.
Fish opens from early position to 25 over UTG limper. I'm on the button with AcKK10c. I call willing to take a 3 way flop in position, as blinds looked disinterested. But BB called and limper called so 4 players, pot $105. I suppose I should be 3 betting to isolate here pre, especially considering who opened (?). The opener was not much of a folder, so I didn't want to inflate the pot pre as he was kinda short (~$450). (?) Thought it could go either way.
Check, check, PFR bets $85. With the straight on the board and 2 others to act, and assuming PFR has sets in his range, I call. (?) Two people behind me fold.
PFR checks. I decided to check back 2 pair because for some reason I still thought he might have sets. That doesn't make much sense though because if he bet flop with a set and did not get raised, Ace is a blank and he would probably bet again. I also thought that he could have AJ that he would not necessarily fold.
River: 10. He checks, I bet 170 into 275 and he calls. I did not see his hand.
I can definitely use feedback on flop and turn decisions. Really not sure what the best lines are.
Thinking about it after the session, it seems I could be using two Ks in my hand as blockers to the nuts on the flop to Raise (bomb) the flop in order to try to get 78 to fold. Is that a reasonable thought?
p.s. I started with about 800. Others had me covered.
