'Stephano V' Seat #4 is the button

*** HOLE CARDS ***
Dealt to FrankNagaiJr [Ah Jd 3h Qd]
John S Flush: folds
BadBoyLaz: folds
oxeimon: calls $0.50
lehuit: folds
sparky41: checks
csipcsup: folds
Slush Puppie: folds
i_love69: calls $0.25
FrankNagaiJr: raises $1 to $1.50

FNJ - I noticed that the stuff people limp in PLO is terrible, so anytime I like my holdings, I bump it up a notch. If I miss the flop, no big deal, but if I catch, it's something worth playing for.

oxeimon: calls $1
sparky41: calls $1
i_love69: calls $1
*** FLOP *** [Kc Th 8h]

I really liked my hand here. In my mind, I had the 9 draws for the nut flush, and 7 more draws for the nut straight, right? Over two cards, I like my chances.

i_love69: checks
FrankNagaiJr: bets $2
oxeimon: folds
sparky41: calls $2
i_love69: raises $11.70 to $13.70
FrankNagaiJr: raises $31.30 to $45 and is all-in

FNJ - In retrospect, calling might have been the better play but I did want to see both cards. I did the odds calculator, and I'm only the 55% favorite here. I lose a bunch of my outs to his two pair draw for the boat.

FNJ - My opponent has [Ac Tc Kd 4c], so I lose the Kh, and the remaining two tens as outs, so I've got 14 outs, if my opponenet doesn't redraw to the boat.

i_love69: calls $24.10 and is all-in
