      Hi.

      Flop: I think betting is fine, but a good alternative is just to check/raise the Flop and jam all Turns.

      Turn: Hmm this is both a good and a bad card. On one hand it gives you a gutshot to the King, which improves your equity. On the other hand it further coordinates the board and improves villain's calling range. This certainly lowers your fold equity on the Turn.

      So the question is whether you should bet here or not. I think it's a pretty tough spot - I don't mind betting because you could potentially fold out hands like AT/KT but I think c/c wouldn't be too bad here either.

      River: I think this is a check/fold now. You have 2 :ss yourself so it's less likely that he's on a busted draw and more likely that he has the straight.

      Thanks.

      Hi mbml,

      why do we want to c/r and jam the turn with a draw? If we haven't hit it on the turn, we only have like 20% equity and 2p/sets/.. stack us?

      Of course if he calls, we get crushed by his sets and two-pairs. The main profit of the play comes from the fold equity. Having the pot equity is just an added bonus, which allows our bluff to work less often in order to be profitable cos we can win in 2 ways instead of 1.

      Ah I see,

      so do we want to do this with every nutflushdraw? And perhaps with some other hands too?

      You can do it some of the time to mix things up. But it's not a must.
