      Hi

      I would fold preflop coz u r often dominated with this hand. Flop is tricky here I think. Having str8flushdraw makes u slight favorite on the river (1:1.2) if he got pair, but there's several concerns. U have low str8 draw, so I think its save to discount 1 out also u got mid flush draw 1 discounted out imo. Obviously u dont have any fold equity since he goes allin. Last thing is paired board if he got trips chances of winning are reduced by his full house draw. I would fold here to allin from unknown opponent.

      I only play this kind of hands for straightdraws / flushdraws / trips / FH (especially against 2 villains) and I had the position here so thought I could call it preflop? Maybe I should call the flop bet (since I definetly get the odds there) and hope to improve on turn ?

      Ive done some PokerStove sims and its coinflip more or less. I ve changed my mind ;) . I didnt spot that u put half ur stack, so call is the right choice i guess.

      I'd raise first time around. By which hands are we dominated preflop, rubysilesia? We're obviously not looking to flop a TP hand.

      Anyway, this way of playing is high variance play. I'd raise the flop as well and call the push because we got commited. You're usually not getting action if you just call the flop and then fire on the turn when you hit your flush/straight, unless he's sitting there with a boat. He is obviously folding this flop more times than not as well or calling, which can result in a freecard if you don't hit.

      Hi degnic!

      Nice hand! Preflop call is correct because of implied odds and flop play is good as well. With a straightflushdraw it's a coinflip - as already pointed out. Since you commited half of your stack already (which is correct, too) you have to go all-in.

      Good luck at the tables!
