      My questions:

      1. When is it good to bet your draws?

      2. And what is most often the primary intention, to get opponents to fold or to build a bigger pot?

      3. Do you always count your odds and outs in these situations, when considering a bet with a draw?

      4. Do you ever donk bet your draws?

      Please help me figure this out.

      1. Read the fixed limit articles, particularly semi-bluffing and articles that have "draws" in the title.

      2. If you have a hand with no showdown value and your opponent can fold enough better hands, you try to get them to fold. If you have a strong that than enough worse hands will call you try to bet for value.

      3. Yes, it's important to know how many outs you have when you try to make someone fold. They have to fold more often if you have less outs and vice versa.

      4. Not often, in a huge multiway pot with an open-ender + flush draw I might donk to try and get a raise so I can 3-bet/cap to get the moneys in with an edge.

      Read the articles, all the answers are in there :P
