      0.02/0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K :heart: , Q :heart:
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.12, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.26) J :heart: , 4 :club: , T :heart: (2 players) (Comment)
      Hero bets $0.16, CO raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, CO raises to $7.01 (All-In), Hero raises to $5.08 (All-In).

      Turn: ($12.35) 5 :diamond:
      River: ($12.35) 5 :heart: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $12.35

      He was betting very agressively so min he was going to have was 2 pair or set, so never took over cards into consideration. Still Aces /9's for straight/straightflush/royalflush plus flush outs (15 outs).
      Comment on preflop. Is this way of playing the draw strictly +EV?

      You are ahead with the monster draw. (We don't need the Equilator in this hand... :s_grin: )
      very nice hand, well played.

      It is always +EV to get it all-in with your hand on such a flop since you have monster draw and you create so much fold equity.

      You might donk the flop since he might interpet it as a weakness and may raise you where you can shove (and many times to win pot directly). Still, you can go for c/r.

      Prelop: you can call or 3-bet against his steal (to disguise your 3-bet range)
