from MP I would fold this pre. Is that too nitty?
It's a short table and when there isn't a whole lot of PF action I like to limp in with high-only hands with good potential. This is a hand that is very easy to throw away postflop, but has good potential if it hits (set of K's, NFD if Acxc flops, nut straight potential).

yeah, I guess it would depend on the tables preflop tendencies. I do the same with my high hands and if the 8 were a 10 J or A I wouldn't think twice about limping in. If I was pretty sure no one wouldn't raise behind me maybe I'd limp in here too :icon_confused:P.S. nice hand BTW B)

i like min raising preflop. it makes it easier to cut deeper into the stacks of passive players who won't raise but will call too much at very little cost. if im at a table with 200bb and there are three bad players to my right who cover me a min raise or a little more is not a bad idea every time they limp in and i have a hand i want to play.it also gets me free cards on the flop. they all check to the raiser, like im gonna make daring and bold c-bets in a four way min raised pot. and lastly it keeps pots multiway. the new style that this game is being played in is much like nlhe. raise preflop in position and hammer away. this is dumb. we want to create huge multiway pots with hands that will hit big draws on the flop to scoop big pots.

Would you also minraise a high only hand, like AAKJ double-suited, or pot-raise to narrow the field? If the latter, don't you risk giving away your hand by using different PF raises?

to be completely honest, i don't worry about giving away my hand with how i size my preflop raises. i have yet to come across a player who seems to have picked up on it. if/when that happens ill find a way to mix it up. one thing that might help is that im not min raising players i consider to be good too often.

depending on the table I'll start raising any hand I want to play from MP to button preflop if "they" show a tendency of checking to me on the flop consistently

Wow, nice river. A spade lower than 9 and you're likely splitting the pot.That was played more like a PLO hand than PLO8. Honestly, I probably fold that hand PF in that position. And once I'm raised, I'm definitely getting out of the way. Your low potential is virtually worthless and the high potential isn't fantastic (mid-range straight draws are trouble in PLO8). Good thing you got the best flop you could hope for.

antistuff, would you be willing to share your thought process on the river there? It's a pretty threatening board, with several straight possibilities that could have filled on the river. Did you assume that villains were all on low draws because of the passive play (no flop bets, no turn raises)? In other words, did you think you stood a decent chance of bluffing them off whatever highs they may have had, or did you not care if they called because you figured there was a decent chance your high was good enough?
