This is why in my early days I started to raise really strong with TPTK against drawing boards. Gotta make the draws pay a hefty premium to keep going. If you're beat, then so be it.Of course, after meeting a lot of two pair/set type hands I moderated that approach by relying on reads + moderate raises to distinguish between sets and draw bluffs. Being in position helps of course, but the overall point remains: it's good poker to apply serious pressure to draws. If applied correctly, you win even when you lose (unless you're over-flushed of course).
yeah, i definely see what you're saying, and i do practice that (pricing out drws - but i usually do it when i have a bit more than tptk, if it's not heads up)...i was just a bit confused with swol's logic as to shove instead of raise, but he clarified it...which makes sense..lately, i notice that i've been getting too greedy with my made hands against draws with more than 3-4 players in the hand. like this hand i played the other day, i didnt raise on the flop...i'm going to make a thread on it, and i'm pretty sure everyone is going to say i should have raised...provotrout, you still playiing 1/2 live or did u make the jump to 2/5...or online?
