Default 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..
