Three hands, I play bad.

1/2$ 500$cap w/5$ option to straddle.
Hero neutral image for session, about even a few hours in.

Hand 1:
Omc flats 5$ straddle from sb, 90% A2+ here. Hero in Lp flats with A235T w/suited A. Button knuckles. Hero 250$, villan covers. Just flipping if I raise here, or crushed. can definitely bluff Omc later in the hand. Rather do it in a smaller pot.
Flop 485r. (16$)
Omc leads for 10$, hero calls, button folds.
Turn 4.(36$) Omc leads 25$, probably A24 here majority of the time. Should we just dump the hand here? I figure any A2 is gonna fill Omc up so we're kinda in a terrible spot HU. He's not terribly aggressive and may actually check nl with an unimproved 4 on the river though.

Hand2:
Lag soul crusher on button straddle. 300$ effective.
Hero lp with AA236ds, couple limps, hero raise to 25$, button calls, rest fold.
Flop KKc8. (63$)
Should we cbet this 100% hu repping a K? If it checks through do we fire turn? If hero checks turn do we have to check/call bluff catch river?
Feel like I should have fired turn if villan checks back flop, or call river to snap off a bluff if we check turn also.

Hand 3:
70$ effective with short stack villan
Hero flats button straddle in sb with AhJhJ2Q. 5 callers.
Flop AA3r ( 25$)
Hero leads for 20$, (optimistic I know)all fold, villan shoves for 65$. Hero? Can't really beat anything, and I'm holding my own outs.

Just playing terrible in these hands I think.

    The lead into this 5-way field with no low draw is debatable, but as played, I think you have to call it off. You only need 45/155 = 29% equity to call. Your hand has 32% versus A2xxx, 35% versus A4xxx, and 50% versus 245xx.

    If he is a LAG, that means that one of his weaknesses is being overly aggressive, so I would check/call the flop. You are never getting him to fold a K on the flop, but he can bet worse hands that he might fold to a cbet.

    If it check through, then I would fire most turns since you will often have the best hand, but need to protect equity. It's hard to say what to do on the river without knowing the board or actions to that point.

    Hand 2:
    Yeah in hindsight checking flop, leading turn should be the play. That's how I'd play a naked K here. I just have to be careful as this particular Villan is capable of some sick plays. Theres probably only three players in my pool capable of a bluff raise in villans spot here, turn or river, and he's one of them.

    Hand 3:
    I'm not sure Villan raise stuffs any hand but A3 here after I lead into the field. That's the problem I have with it. I could range him wider if I checked, and he bet.

    Hand1: does this OMC never ever have a hand like A3456? If never, then u can fold turn.

    Hand2: I'm confused about one thing : if he's a laggy soul crusher, how is the effective stack $300? Aren't you (hero) playing for profit ? Maybe not in a home game where we all know each other , but if this is a casino game, I'd be going north like uh.......a lot (ex: rio wsop game is the same format as this except for the straddle being optional).
    Vs a laggy player, x/call, bet the turn seems good (especially on a low card).

    Hand3: pay that man his money. And x/call flop next time. Maybe i'd bet with AK+ and a low draw.

    Effective stack is my stack in hand two. I almost cover the table except for said Villan. I prefer to not play deep with him if I can avoid it as I'm outclassed. He's a reg, one of my best friends, and an absolute beast. He was playing plo8 almost exclusively online pre BF. He schooled the guy that schooled me.

    Nobody has more than $300 in a $500 cap bigO game?? Wtf?

    Change games immediately. It must be one of the worst games around.

    Only 5 card game. No rake. Welcome to pdx. 100$min. People can go south every 60 min. It's either shortstack and run it up in an hour or build it up slowly for your entire session. There's really no motivation to play a big stack unless there's someone terrible with chips, and there probably cashing down in 45min so bust em quick.
