    PLO river play

    only have around 35 hands on villain so far. he seems like a calling station with a VP of 45ish and a PFR of 10ish. he's been calling a lot of cbets on the flop as well. he's got a big stack though so maybe he's just getting adventurous.

    PokerStars Hand Omaha Pot Limit ($0.25/$0.50 USD)
    Table 'Clavel III' 6-max Seat #5 is the button
    Seat 1: m_dolens ($53.75 in chips)

    how do you guys play this river? if i'm betting out, how much? should i be considering check/calling instead? the pot is $37.64 on the river and i have $35.18 behind.

    Your losing to a running backdoor flush. He could have two pair or set. If you check IMO he will be pot. I would bet around $10.13, this could look like a value bet and maybe you backed into flush on a combo turn that hit or you. If he jams river over your bet then fold.

    You have second nut backdoor flush, no? With 2 straights closing on the turn.

    Shove

    here was my thinking:

    maybe check/calling because villain is likely to bet the river again. also, if he does have the nut flush i'm losing the minimum. however, if he checks behind i'm losing out on a lot of value i think.

    if i raise, i think i'm committed to the pot. for some reason, i don't like the idea of raise/folding the river, at least not against this villain.

    pushing all in makes some straights and lower flushes fold that may have called a bet or even bet out if i check the river.

    EDIT: also, what hands are calling this push?

    i'll post my actual actions later. i'd like to hear some more opinions first if possible.

    If you feel he's a station, don't give him the chance to check behind. Sure he could have backdoored nut flush with some kind of KJT hand but stations are going to pay you off with much wider than nut flush
