Both these hands took place at $2/5 $200-500.
This is less about one hand than about what factors would cause you guys to raise flop with these types of draws vs call flop and either bet turn if checked, raise turn if villain bets, or something just call and try to hit.
I've noticed that a lot of times when people raise flop on wet boards fish assume you have a draw. I had a hand today where I raised AK, flopped Ah Kx 8h and I cbet/3b shoved over a rather large check/raise from the BB. After the hand (which I won) both the guy who check/raised and another player were convinced I had either Kxhh or some kind of straight/flush draw. In fact, they both agreed that they "put me on" KQhh.
Obviously not the same as flopping a draw, but I've found that when the board is wet (especially a disconnected flushing board like T62ss) fish will often just assume you have a draw if you raise flop which is great if we have a set but less great when we have a draw and want folds.
Here are 2 quick example hands I played last week. Wondering what goes into deciding whether to raise or call flop. I'm talking about reads, boards, our specific hand and equity etc.
Assume $500 effective in both hands.
UTG raises $25, hero calls from MP with AJhh, BB calls. $75 in the pot. Flop comes 9h 6c 3h. BB checks, UTG bets $40, hero?
Villain raises to $20 from MP, 1 call, hero calls in the BB with Js9s. Pot $60. Flop comes Qs Td 4s. Hero checks, PFR bets $45, caller folds, hero?
Just a note - I called out of the BB because villain was extremely terrible and fishy.
Just kind of wondering what influences your flop play on both of these hands, 1 in position and 1 OOP.
