it's kinda hard to say what the optimal line here, it's very opponent dependent. i wouldn't even like to give an optimal vacuum line because it would be almost meaningless.

i assume you're aware that this is the kind of table where multiple players will call $40 bets at the outset of the hand...i kinda like leading out for $40-50 myself, trapping a few callers and maybe someone raises. even if they don't, if you get 2 or 3 callers here, you're making a solid return on your bet.

another line that comes to mind is to check-call. this seems weird, but the guys behind you are going to be getting a great price and your hand is well disguised. so for instance KXs will call, QXs will call if he has some kind of wonky other shit going on with his hand or is bad. and it'll be tough for them to fold for less than the pot on the next street when you get there.

like i said at the start you really need to know your players. the modern game of PLO is almost based around the idea of flop a lot of outs and hammer of the gods aggression. this may be true online where there are more savvy players, and most of the fish are fish because they fold too much, but in a casino everyone is a live one until proven otherwise, and the focus surely moves to get as much money in the pot as possible.

i'm going to chew on this some and get back to you. i'm not entirely satisfied with either line. what i actually don't like is checkraising. i see no reason to squeeze anyone out when you're drawing to the nut flush and nut straight. the more guys putting more money in this one the better.
