I might not raise this hand preflop. It's not a bad hand, but it's not that great. In a tournament it might be better to play it safe and limp.I kind of feel the same about the flop. This looks like a great flop for your hand, but the problem is that you have no made hand at all, so you won't be a significant favorite against any of villian's range (unless villian has something like 9TJ2). True, your draw is pretty big, you're like 40% against a set and a coinflip against 2-pair, but still I think a call is better because you are almost never a favorite when your raise is called. If you could push BB off his hand by raising, a raise would be good, but this is pretty unlikely at a $2 tournament. So just call the flop.

You have to raise fully that turn - you have the nuts and need to either get full value, or make him fold. It's the best option IMO. Stack sizes mean you're committing...

I would just limp pre.That said I like your line the rest of the way. You hit a great flop with a 13 card nut wrap as well as backdoor str8 and flush opps. I like the less than pot raise here. We don't mind a 3rd player coming along, as your draw is equal to if not better than anyone else's. And you lay them bad odds to call, so we punish them with a callable raise.Once it's HU on the turn, full pot that noise. There are situations that I'll flat the guy here if I think he's weak and will overbet a brick river misreading my hand....but at a 2 buck SnG, get those chips in the pot.

Absolutely open raise with that hand. And raise a little more on the turn

raise all day, bet bigger, you are going to want to bet bigger for vulnerable value hands on boards that you need to balance this often by betting bigger with bluffs, it is just an overall theme in your game when transitioning from nl to plo to size your bets larger in general. there are exceptions of course but bet bigger and gamble it up my friend it's a great game

I totaly don't agree with rrumsey and Middles and other that say bet big on every street. That is just irrational play. Maybe you will win one or two pots playing like this but overall you want to think about what you do, what is the strenght of your hand and what are your odds etc. Dingas is the one who is right in here. If you bet preflop and got called by 3 other players you have to be carefull. The truth is you had no hand whatsoever on flop and reraising previous bet was, in my opinion unnecessary. You had to hit J or 6 to make your hand. In the best case scenerio there were 3xJ and 3x6 in the deck left. Someone said you had a back door flush but that is not what you are waiting for. In fact you had a decent draw on flop but that was all. I do agree that on turn when you hit J you should bet more, but Omaha is not, like many people think, a game of luck and crazy bets. Think about your hand and don't bet like crazy cos that is the fastes way to go broke.

I think you're misreading his hand. Nine or ten also makes a straight.

since turnaction can bring u alltheway, reckon as i remember that u are the nut on the turn, u have to pot after his raise,..so there is no way to ever call that raise only to see a bad river? bring it in when u r good!
