Firstly, I just wanna say, that if folding here to limps preflop is the best play, then I really need someone to explain why in a more detailed fashion. I'm starting to notice that rec players really don't fight over limped pots much (it's like it's too small of a pot for them to care or something), and I feel like I can flop a lot of little pieces of draws here with this hand, and thus can use this hand to take some pots down on flops and turns (occasionally rivers) vs these guys.
The only way you're evaluation works is if he folds a hand we beat or we get it all in against a better hand. There is no more money to be won from this pot. It's either lose more, or win the $0.90. That's according to your idea that villain will X/F hands like straights and sets on flush boards and X/F straights and flushes on paired boards. IMO, the risk/reward is not worth it.
To be fair, snarble5 never said anything about villian's x/f range, but he did say that villian would check non-brick turns w/ just a straight.
I could be convinced here to call and play turns, however, my knowledge of how recreational players are acting with various parts of their range is pretty bad, and that's why i ended up folding here. I'm pretty frequently surprised by how loosely they play both as the aggressor and once they've ceded initiative. If I were a much better player I could see how calling might be better than folding.
One other thing I do want to mention is that, w/ 35% equity vs. the range that you assign him on a brick-ish turn card, a turn call would be marginal at best against another large bet since we'll be very likely to face a bet on the river at that point. I think that's kinda along the lines of what LSGoCards7 is saying about a flop call.
Hence we can't just look at even a seemingly non-threatening 3:1 pot odds scenario on a brick turn and imagine that we have a clear call, given that his flop sizing pretty clearly defines how he plans to represent his strength already. Sometimes we'll hit the flush on the river, and our opponent will keep betting. Sometimes we'll boat up, and opponent will bet 2/3-pot or more. And very rarely, the river will brick, and our opponent will bet his wiffed wrap again, and we'll fold the best hand.
I'd just feel way more comfortable calling flop if I had a good read on the guy, or at least if I was really familiar with the part of the player population that his profile fits into (a 62/15 pure recreational player), as you two clearly seem to be. Anyway that's why I posted the hand, I just really didn't know what to do, but at least now I feel like the next time I'm in this spot I know what specific containers to fill as far as the information I might need to continue on to the turn. As played, I think this villain is sitting on a very strong part of his made-hand range, and until I've got at least a few more weeks' of exclusive PLO full-time grinding under my belt, I'll avoid calling here vs. such a large bet.
Really appreciate your input guys, and anything else you have to say here.
