    guy who lead is a loose fish playing 50% of hands, other guy is pretty tight. Is this a good spot to bluff with the blockers? I assume we should shove any non flush river, and if only the tight guy comes along maybe even shove flush rivers.

    Yeah, I think it is a good spot to bluff. Sine everyone checked flop, the guy that leads could be doing this with sets, 2pair+FD etc., and the guy who just calls behind never ever has 67xx, because he should be getting it in on turn on such a drawy flop and not call and give you odds to call behind with a FD for example. So, the only person we can worry about is SB, but I still think a raise is profitable.

    However, double-paired Aces, even without a suit are good enough to reraise preflop, so I wouldn't never just call. I don't know why you chose to call, especially on BTN, where you have massive advantage, and you should reraise to fold out blinds and isolate the hand to HU...

    Hm i heard, that unsuited hands are pretty crappy, since we never flop a flushdraw/backdoor flushdraw. i would kind of feel lost, when i only flop a pair of AA and nothing else with it.

    Many unsuited hands are crappy, Yes, but not doublpaired AA66 in Position. I mean on BTN you can even choose to reraise a hand as weak as 5789r, and it will still be profitable. Also, you can consider these aces suited in a way, because with the Ah, Ad, you can always use the blockers to represent the nut flush, so the hand is strong enough to raise. If it was AA62r it is ok to just call, but I still think with position you should be re-raising those. Position is so powerful in PLO, and you should use every chance to isolate the pot on BNT to HU, because playing vs 1 opponent in position in a reraised pot will be profitable for you 99% of the time. It is the ultimate goal in PLO, to play as many and as big possible pots in position, especially vs passive opponents.
