I saw your video from Ms. PLO series, video number 5 about playing non-nut hands, where youre talking about situations where its good to call people on flop and turn and hope that they will shut down. I guess its all about HU with an aggressive oponent and you should have the possition.
I wonder what am I acomplishing with this play? Lets say the flop is monotone and a guy bets twice, I call with a set or 2-pair, hoping that he will check the river. Is this bare-ace-bluff catching situation? So I should call even with a weaker flush?
What if he checks to me on the river, should I turn my made hand into a bluff? Mets say I have top two on the board 78J2 and then A comes. Should I try to bluff representing Aces-up?
What if he bets a weaker flush, like T-high, because he is aggresive and have flopped a flush OOP, he tries to get us out of the pot by 2-barreling. Should I bluff him on the river, representing higher flush? As I understand your expanation, the turn bluff by reraising with bare Ace is great, because turn aggression is very strong, and the whole bare-Ace bluff should be used by reraising, not by betting and representing my A-high flush.
Im not sure, if people with weak flush are going to 2-barrell me and then check/call the river. Maybe fullpot river bluff is much more succesfull that some sort of a 2/3 pot bet bluff.
After hearing your analysis of this hand, I am wondering why you called?To me, this was pretty close to has much as you could hope for shy of flopping a full house, and in spite of hitting this flop pretty hard you are still in a situation where you have to play timidly. The fact that it is a 5 way pot makes it just horrible. Obviously, your post flop play is great.
