      Hey Shero1910,

      Generally speaking the drawier the board the more you should be inclined to raise. Very dry boards you'd always flat, very wet boards you'd nearly always raise.

      TJ3 rainbow texture is somewhere in between. There are quite a few possible straight draws so raising the flop will be fine. Flatting wouldn't be out of the question on this texture either - it depends on villain's tendencies and whether you think he will continue to a raise often.

      It's less likely your opponent hits a dry board. Often he won't be able to call a raise and you make more money on average by letting him bluff with hands that have missed (or betting worse hands for value).

      Also you don't need to worry so much about protecting from draws, because there aren't many on drier boards.
