      I ran into the same situation twice in about five minutes. I'm talking about raising preflop, missing the flop and then facing aggression. This time I thought that it was OK to call, but in almost similar situation I folded. Please check my other hand, I think there is probably a leak in one from those hands :)

      Probably I would fold after the raise. I am still not sure about checking the flop, maybe you should conti bet here? Lets see what judges advice.

      I think you should shove on the flop first.

      'With two or more oponents and trash hand we check/fold...' - sounds familiar? :) I guess the basic articles are right here and you should check/fold it here.

      You don't really have chances to improve, just your two outer to set and some backdoor combination, so don't take your chances here.

      If you face no aggression on the flop, you can think of betting turn. Especially with open ended straight draw it seems possible to push the turn if nobody shows strength before.

      Thanks for the advice, I actually had a read that this villain is a maniac which raises every crap and it paid off - he had nothing. Thanks for the help with ideal play though.

      Exploiting weaker oponents rarely covers with the best play against reasonable ones. Good thing is, those two strategies aren't really far from each other while ssing (not much to do here but raising and pushing ;) ).
