      Just wanted to make sure my thoughts are right on this flop. I dont mind drawing for free but if any of them started betting I wanted to get it in because it really sucks to call bets all the way to the river even thought our equity is really good, also my draws are obvious so all 8, diamonds and Kings are likely action killers. So once any of them bet I hoped to get it in.

      Is this a good plan or should I have lead out and started the betting myself?

      Hello ollehult,

      Preflop: You could even isolate here but of course completing is an option as well.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd definitely just bet myself here rather than go for a Check/Raise. The problem with Check/Raise here is that we will often face a very strong hand which continues. And at the best for us it's a coinflip:

      Board: 9:diamond: A:diamond: T:club:
             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    53.07%  53.07%   0.00% { TT-99, ATs-A9s, ATo-A9o }
      UTG+1  46.93%  46.93%   0.00% { QdJd }

      Rather Bet yourself and then reevaluate further actions. :)

      Best regards.
