When you are playing a hand, you are conveying information. Depending on board textures, opposition biases and your own image on the table, different stories can be communicated. When you are playing at a Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) table and are playing a specific board, you consider a lot of things.
Let’s take an example
Flop: 3 ♦ 2 ♠ 6 ♦
You have: 4 ❤ 4 ♦ T ♠ K ❤ 9 ❤
You are blocking some of the nut possibilities which is great and gives you the power to make a blocker play. (read more about blocker plays in PLO 6: 50 Mistakes That I Have Made) You also have a straight draw. You can take a stab at the pot on the flop, as there aren’t any wrap considerations. If you get called, you have to think that you are up against either a middle set or a flush draw or a combo. The combo is fairly strong, and the villain will not be able to give up on turn or river bets in all likelihood. However, you can represent all blanks and sometimes your inferior flush might be good too. Look to make more such plays when you.
When you are in HU play or playing on a paired board. You can bet into the opposition as it is unlikely that he hit trips or flopped the house. You can delay the bet to the turn if not the flop. Looks trappy.
If you see that you are marked as a tight player on the table, you should mix in your play with odd steals to profit from them, given your image.
