      I am not sure how to play such a hand postflop. I often have the best hand and many outs if not, so my idea was to raise for protection, value and maybe for freecard. The problem i see with this raise is that if someone decides to 3bet, the pot will blow up and it won't be easy for me to fold.
      If raising is a good idea, how about the size?

      Hello HughJazz82,

      Guess against their line you can still consider even raising. And the raise size seems to be fine as well. Doesn't really matter either you raise or not. We planning to go broke against their range and stacks anyways even if they want to shove.

      Best regards.
