    Default Omaha hero fold

    Second time in my life I've done this. Other time was in Courchevel, I showed my cards and the guy showed his (I was correct, he had hit the straight flush). Pretty sure I was also correct here. In my experience, below PLO100 people just don't raise the river in Omaha as a bluff. And since I have the nut flush, I'm blocking the naked Ace bluff, which is the only realistic bluff for someone to try here.

    Against strong opponents, yeah, maybe he flopped bottom set or something and then when I bet the river he thinks I have a non-nut flush and turns his hand into a bluff... but no, I don't think you're ever going to see that at PLO25.

    Without a read to the contrary, below PLO50 and without a read on the specific player, I think automatically folding anything except the nuts to a river raise is probably a solid strategy.
