      Think you played it fine. You need to get the money in with those draws on the flop while you still have a ton of equity. If it bricks off on the turn you lose a lot of equity then you basically have to fold to a decent bet, whereas if it's allin on the flop you've got enough equity to make it +EV.

      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. Bet/3Bet/Call line is fine to take.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      To increase your fold equity you can likely play bet/shove on that flop.
      Although bet/3-bet/call is also fine.

      Why would you want to increase fold equity? You're going to hit your draw more often than you're not. You want all the money in on the flop!

      against set for example we are 40:60 so we still need fold equity

      Well a set is never folding but a higher flush draw might, and we're not doing too well against that either (35-65) so fold equity is always a good thing.

      lol against a set we are slightly less than a coinflip, and a set is fucking strong. against higher flush draws im assuming he's got no pair so if we pair up we add that to our outs. against a strong handrange we're winning this too much to desire a fold.

      but he would still be a 65% favourite.... I'd much rather make a higher flush draw fold (convincing him that I have a set) than get the money in.
