5/5 PLO game @ Maryland Live, it was straddled UTG to $10 pretty much every time, so effectively it was a 5/5/10 game.
Straddle pot, limped around to me in the BB, I complete the straddle with A♦ K♦ J♣ 7♦ -- not a hand I'm thrilled with in a multi-way pot OOP.
The straddle was a good reg I know from a local 5/10 PLO game, but he'd been tilting a bit (which was uncharacteristic of him), and he also was habitually potting it from the straddle if it was a limped pot.
Villain pots it to $60 total. The 3 other limpers call, I call, so we're 5-way to the flop, pot $300
Flop: K♠ 8♣ 4♦
I check, and surprisingly Villain checks. I say surprisingly because he'd been 3-betting with plenty of low run-downs that hit his board with a pair + gutshot, and he had been c-betting at a high frequency. It gets checked around.
This completes 56xx but brings a backdoor flush draw, and gives me two pair. Based on the flop action, I think I'm ahead most of the time here, and bet for value, and to protect my equity. I bet $250 into $300
Villain calls, and his friend who is the button also calls. I'm assuming Button picked up a backdoor flush draw or such.
I check because I don't think many worse hands are calling me on this board, and if Villain decides to bet, I can see how Button reacts and reevaluate.
Villain bets $700 into $1100, a fairly value-ish sized bet from what I'd see of Villain. Button folds.
