      Hero ???



      at first i was going to post this hand for the flop play, because i wasn't sure of the call but looking at the odds in veriz's pot odds calculator, i am in fine shape to make the call, i gave myself 12 outs on the flop and 11 on the turn because if a nine comes out, it is very likely he would be holding some kind of full house.

      the info i would be looking at would be
      A. What kind of bet sizing is appropriate when i am the one looking to draw on a drawy board.
      and B. am i good to fire a second barrel on the Turn or is it best to check/call according to odds and outs accordingly, looking back on it, bet/calling according to odds. would probably would have been a good idea with a draw for a nut flush and a gutshot for a nut straight.

      Hello foulkezboyz,

      Both options are fine on the flop, if you want to take it less variance then Calling is totally fine. But turn of course we are planning to fold it cause you could be already having reversed implied odds while he could have FH? ;)

      Best Regards.
