Flop check raise with aaxx
 
This type of hand happens fairly often. Without a read, is it just a fold?

I have aaxx with say 100bb. Say there is a pot raise, I reraise, folded to the original raiser who calls. Flop comes lets say picture picture blank. Or let's say it's 88J It's checked to me, I lead out for about 2/3 or so and get repotted. Is this just about always trips in a vacuum?

If I'm in the villain's shoes, should I be leading out on the flop, or just check raise as well?

I try to reraise more than just aces, usually with position, but I notice most others at the levels I play will only reraise with AAxx and maybe something like tjqk double suited.

Thanks!

In a vacuum the answer is basically yes

That said we should sometimes check paired rainbow flops with AAxx since either we have 2 outs or villain has 0-2 outs, we make our read and get to a cheaper showdown a higher % of the time.

In a vacuum, just assume villain has what he's representing until he's proven he's a bluffer though.

That's pretty much what I thought. Thanks. Now if I could just get variance to go away.

Anyone else wanna chime in? The Omaha forum seems pretty dead here.

hello :)

The problem in this hand is not the flop.. you made a mistake before the flop... i would never 3bet aaxx (unless its really a strong one) with <100 bbs.. even in position you giving up too much by folding too when you're ahead and calling when you're behind.. i would flat pre unless you'Re shorter or shorthanded..
