Re: Extracting value in PLO
Don't raise out of the SB.
I am not sure what would be worse, checking the flop or betting full pot. But 3 handed you should lead into every xyy rainbow flop regardless of what you have. It is a good spot to bluff when you missed and when you hit you need to bet for protection, information, and value. On the turn a bet with quads is also mandatory for value as they may well call you down with full houses but they will rarely bet and never raise. The same applies for the river.
We should always lead with trips because unthinking players will almost never raise unless they have trips or better, this at least gives us a fair idea of where our QTT7 is at, namely drawing to 5 outs. The only other hands that people can have are pocket pairs and it is a mistake to give them free cards as we cannot extract much value from them by doing so, but we can lose a whole lot if they get there.
