      Hi.

      I would just pot every street. I always double barrel my flush draws anyway so I don't mind just building up the pot first.

      On the river, he is mostly repping flushes and the occasional overplayed T9/QJ/QQ. We have the 2nd nut flush vs a very loose guy and I Don't think he ever folds any flush here. We should be able to shove here for value.

      Thanks.

      IM not betting the turn because i pic equity, i dont think we can say that we are value betting against 8x, Jx, so i let him bluff air and draws. when i have only flush draw im betting the turn 100%.
      Why should i bet pot flop instead of a smaller size?

      We have a semi-bluff and we are going to double barrel. Since we are going to double barrel or triple barrel i prefer just building up the pot as much as possible in the first place. For example if you expect villain to call flop fold turn a lot, wouldn't it make more sense to make the pot bigger so that you win more later on with your bluffs?

      About betting the turn after picking up the pair on the turn - I think it's basically just treating the 5 as additional outs. I Don't think you have that much showdown value with 5 pair.

      You are

      1) Building the pot when you hit
      2) Setting yourself up for some river bluffs
      3) We do fold out some 8X hands from his range, and 8X > 5X
