Theoretically, when the dealer hands you an ace high rainbow flop, it should be the easiest street to play, but that does not mean it can be played without any thought.
You always need to stop and think before you act and the high card rainbow boards are no exception.
According to the poker news , one of the reasons that these types of boards do not have a commonly accepted ‘right way of playing’ is because there are so many options available to you.
Some players believe that these boards always attract a continuation bet and therefore always float looking to take the pot way on the turn, and then there are players who just fold to every continuation bet.
Bet sizing always varies, with some players betting larger to try and force people off this one pair and mediocre holdings, whilst other prefer to always bet the same half pot bet so they get a cheaper price when they are bluffing – which is a high percentage of the time.
If you are playing online, such as in a Betfair Omaha poker event, then you have a great opportunity to use stats to help you form an opinion.
There are plenty of stats available to help you understand how often players are likely to float, fold to a continuation bet, raise, or call and give up on the turn.
If you are playing live then you do not have the benefit of electronic wizardry to help you, but you still have access to the most amazing computer in the world – your brain.
Your understanding of how your opponent ticks will help you formulate the right approach when faced with the rainbow ace high boards.
