      SSS says that you should fold all OESD's and Flush Draws if you didn't raise before the flop, but this kind of draw comes once in a lifetime... i would play for all chips!

      But not when you have both of them!!

      From the Bronze article "Draws in a freeplay situation"

      "Monster draws are draws with more than 12 outs. Such hands are so strong that you should play them like a made hand." ;)

      Yeah, shove flop!

      ...what are you talking, you crazy??? :f_eek:

      OF COURSE, we don't fold monsterdraws! :D

      With SSS you have to play them aggressively, so standard line would be to bet potsize/shove flop or shove turn if you get only calls. You could also play c/push if you think opponents are aggressive enough to bet out. As played, push flop after the raise and a cold call.

      @ Manca: Try reading/rereading those bronze articles that teach how to play all kind of draws in freeplay situations.
