      what do you think about my plan on the flop?
      Vs this kind of players with 50bb stacks I wanted to go broke on the flop.
      I was thinking which line would be better... bet myself or x/r and go broke.
      Stats of player aren't very important so I don't paste.
      I'm just curiouse if I can go broke on this board with my draws?

      Considering his check pre-flop and raising and calling on the flop I'd put him on A :club: x :club: , QT, KJ, KQ ( I think he would have raised with AJ, AK, AQ, AT pre-flop), 55. Being the big blind his range is wide but after raising a draw heavy board in an unraised pot I think you need to give his raise some credit and believe he has something. However if he had 55 he should have perhaps 3-Bet on the flop instead of calling to protect his hand. So I'd say A :club: x :club: , QT, KJ, KQ. Even against this range you have 45% equity.

      Otherwise I don't think you should raise on an un-raised pot with draws. You do have a monster draw but still I feel its best to call using odds. If you raise the flop weak hands will fold and won't pay you off and against stronger hand s you're not ahead since you only have a draw at the moment. You don't have initiative or position and you raise an unraised pot with a combo draw I think would not be the best move here. Call the flop and get a cheap look at the turn and river. Fire after completing your draw. I think that should be the line taken for these kind of hands.

      Hello BGawli,

      Against those small stacks I guess I'd just Bet/Bet myself since you will rarely have much fold equity anyways here. :) But as played seems to be fine, doubt that you can do a lot on the turn while we don't even know what outs are clean for us.

      Best Regards.
