I think you should look at the beginners strategy on odds and outs and implied odds

flush draw you need 4:1 pot ods so maybe you can default implied ods at 3:1 when you ip

and straight draw is 5:1 pot odds needed but its slightly more disguised so I would go with around 3.5:1 maybe ip

but stack size and player type and what hand strength you think your opponent has needs to all be taken into consideration. i.e you get check raised to 28 bb holding a straight draw for 100bb you are pretty confident villain has a set you have invested 12 bb and now have 88bbs, 28+12=40/16= 2.5:1 pot odds now since villain is OP and will lead out on the turn of about 2/3 the pot he has already given you the implied odds (well a few $s off) you need + he is nearly committed to the pot to for you to gain the rest of his stack

I hope this helped

i dont understand the 3:1 logic , shouldnt we only care about the stack size we can win ?

for example with pairs we call if we can win x20 our investment and we have 11% chance to hit a set with those.

Flush draw has about 17% chance to be completed on each street which means our default calling rule can be lighter than x20 , the question is how much it should be? i mean

if someone has 2000 stack for example and he bets 100 into a 200 or even 100 pot , we can call even thought we dont get 3:1 odds because we can win x20 our investment similar to pocket pairs. isnt that right?
