      Hey ilidek,

      Preflop open is fine.

      At 20nl you rarely have the dynamic to 3bet draws. Usually you don't have enough fold equity since players are mainly raising only with value hands.

      You have enough implied odds to call the flop.

      I would fold the turn, you can easily be drawing dead. At best you have 30% equity. (unless villain is on some crazy bluff which is only a tiny part of his range)

      Coach: at what stakes does it start to make sense to 3 bet a flush draw vs unknown on the flop? NL50? Higher?

      Vs an unknown I probably wouldn't even do it until 200nl+.

      But you can do it at any stakes if you have a read villain is check-raising the flop light.

      The problem with doing it vs an unknown micro-stakes player is that on average they are not bluff check/raising the flop very often. You need villain to fold some of the time in order for 3betting to be profitable, and if they are only check-raising sets, this isn't going to happen.
