A♥ K♥ J♠ 2♦

A♥ K♥ T♠ 6♦

A♥ K♥ Q♠ 6♦

All of the above

None of the above

Single suited AK with another broadway is always a raise from this position. These hands often make top two pair or top pair plus the nut flush draw.
When you face a 3-bet, having a wheel card makes a big difference! Raise-call with the wheel card, raise-fold without it.
Here’s the solution to this spot from the PLO Matrix (our new, easy-to-use preflop solver):

Question #2 You’re playing $0.25/$0.50 PLO with a $25 (50BB) stack. What’s your play on the button with T♠ 9♦ 8♠ 7♥?

Fold

Raise and fold if you face a 3-bet

Raise and call if you face a 3-bet

Raise and 4-bet if you face a 3-bet

This hand is a fold because of the very high rake at micro-stakes and your short stack size. Medium rundowns don’t make much money, so when high rake is taken into account, they become folds (pictured below).

If you were playing mid-stakes or if you had a full stack, this hand is a clear raise-call. Here’s what the 50BB solution for high-stakes looks like:

Question #3 You’re playing $10/$20 PLO. The player in the cutoff raises to $70. What’s your play on the button with T♠ 9♦ 8♠ 7♥?

Fold

Call

3-Bet

I hope you are not 3-betting these types of hands like it’s 2016! These single suited rundowns are all calls, along with some single suited one-gappers like T986 and T976.

You need hands with great floppability to 3-bet, which is why optimal 3-bet ranges are centered around double suited hands. For example, the PLO Matrix 3-bets with T986 double suited in this same spot.

Question #4 You’re playing $10/$20 PLO. You raise to $70 in the cutoff with A♥ Q♦ J♦ 9♠. How would you play versus a 3-bet from the button?

Fold

Call

3-Bet

Relative position matters a lot with marginal hands, so we can give this one up versus the button (right side of the circled hand).

If one of the blinds had 3-bet instead, this hand is a call (left hand of the circled hand) because you would be in position postflop.

Continue >>

Question #5 You’re playing $10/$20 PLO and it folds around to you in the small blind. What’s your play with K♠ J♠ 9♦ 5♥?

Fold

Limp and fold if you face a raise

Limp and call if you face a raise

Raise and fold if you face a 3-bet

Raise and call if you face a 3-bet

Playing from the small blind is definitely the most complicated part of preflop strategy in PLO. Here’s the solution for single suited KJ hands in this spot: 

K♠ J♠ 9♦ 5♥ is a raise-fold, but look at how these similar hands are played:

K♠ J♠ T♦ 5♥ is a raise-call
K♠ J♠ 9♦ 4♥ is a limp-call
K♠ J♥ 9♥ 5♦ is a limp-fold

Continue >>

Question #6 You’re playing $10/$20 PLO and it folds around to you in the small blind. What’s your play with A♥ A♠ Q♥ J♠?

Limp and call if you face a raise

Limp and 3-bet if you face a raise

Raise and call if you face a 3-bet

Raise and 4-bet if you face a 3-bet

Limping is a big part of the optimal small blind strategy, and so you need to protect your limping range by mixing in traps with strong hands. The vast majority of double suited AA combos should be limp-raised in this spot, but some should be raised as well (pictured below).

Continue >>

Question #7 You’re playing $1/$2 PLO at a 6-handed table. UTG raises to $7 and the cutoff calls. What’s your play in the big blind with A♠ K♠ Q♦ 8♥?

Fold

Call

3-Bet

The most relevant range in multiway situations is the initial raiser, so this hand is a fold versus UTG’s relatively strong range, which will dominate AKss relatively often.

If the initial raiser was in the cutoff and the caller was on the button, this hand would be a call.
