      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (6 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      saw flop

      Button ($51.35)
      SB ($44.55)
      BB ($48.70)

      UTG ($17.25)
      MP ($58.85)
      Gerv (CO) ($51)

      Preflop: Gerv is CO with K, T
      2 folds, Gerv bets $1.75, 2 folds, BB calls $1.25

      Flop: ($3.75) 2, 7, 4 (2 players)
      BB bets $1.50, Gerv calls $1.50

      Turn: ($6.75) 5 (2 players)
      BB checks, Gerv bets $4.25, BB raises $20.50, Gerv folds

      I just felt sick of this hand because in my opinion, I should have raised Flop with my monster draw and took iniative from there.

      Problem in my mind was that the only legitimate equity I have when he 3bets postflop (he donks, me raises, he 3bet)) is the naked FD.

      The c/R on the Turn doesn't give me the odds to continue and that's WP of him imo :f_mad:

      I would prefer raising flop to take initiative and have chance winning pot without improving my hand. Also if he 3-bet I´m shoving
      if he happens to have bigger flushdraw or set, then I´m fine with that, but often he has weaker draw, bluff or one pair hand that you can force to fold by raising on the flop and betting turn
      b/f turn is ok, since you don´t likely have showdown value with your K high, so you should bet turn to make him fold weak made hands
