      Hello zumpar,

      If you raise in those spots there is obviously nothing much to do than go broke. I might even take pot control and reevaluate it on the turn rather than play for the stacks. 54 makes already a straight and of course sets are possible. Plus we are deep with SB. ;)

      Best Regards.

      hey veriz,

      but if i but if i just flat the flop (along with 3 other people),

      any 3,4,5,8,9,T,A, and a :club:

      is a very bad card for me.... there are just so many draws and so many players, i cant really like almost any card except of 6 and a 7. I mean, if i choose the passive line on the flop and dont hit my 4-outer for a FH, i can pretty much fold to a big bet on the turn, cause there are just so so many cards that could hurt me. and if a blank comes, like a Q :heart: , u still cant really raise the turn for value there, right?

      pretty much only J,Q,K are blanks at this point and those cant be of :club: 's.

      isnt raising a better option there? You force all draws out, and if someone shoves ur either ahead against some TPTK/overpair/combo draw or far behind against 33/45.

      So? I would then just give up if a FD completes or another draw. There is no way I am playing for the stacks with just 2pairs in such a board where straight/sets even possible. What do you think they are going broke?

      With raising you are isolating yourself against strong holdings and forcing worse out as you said yourself. :)
