Game type: 1/2 6 max NL at Full Tilt
Your image: Pretty aggressive preflop and on the flop
Opponent’s image: A little loose
Your hand: 10♠9♠

The setup: You’ve been playing a standard LAG game, raising a lot preflop and continuation-betting most flops. You haven’t run into much resistance, and you haven’t really taken any hands to showdown yet.

This hand, UTG+1 limps and you make it $7 on the CO. The table folds back to the limper, a somewhat loose player, who calls. The flop looks ok to you:

6♦5♠J♠

Your opponent leads for $8 into $17. You decide that with the stack sizes, you’d better just call. The turn improves you to a flush and gutshot draw with the K♥. Your opponent leads again, this time for $20 into $33.

What’s your play with your flush and straight draw?

I dont like calling because it basically spells out that youre on a draw. Chances are against you nailing it, and even if you hit, you most likely dont get paid off. I wouldve raised the flop to throw off the scent and hopefully get a free river if the turn misses and he checks to see what I do. Given the situation though, I fold. The only two options I would consider now, based on the action, are raising about pot and folding. Because of my opponents loose image I could imagine he hit this flop well enough to call my raise here, especially considering weve been aggressive and he might just not buy what were selling. Maybe he folds, but maybe not…and if he calls, Im in for a much bigger pot then my hand warrants, with only about a 25% chance to win. I dont have too much invested in this hand…not worth the risk…I’m letting it go.

should raise instead instead of calling to make opponent think your not on a draw

I hate calling with a draw.
I dont mind doing it with two draws. So I just call.

Potodds are decent for 15 outs. Ok, we need a bit of implied odds to get EV better than neutral, and hitting the spades wont give us that. But since the spadedraw is that obvious, he wont put us on the doublegutter. So if that hits, we will get nice implied odds.

FOLD – your opponent has you beat, you pot odds are bad (I count only 12 outs – 4 Qs and 8 spades (don’t count the Q 2xs). If you hit the spade (and that is not always going to win) your opponent will put you on it so your implied odds are not that great. Your implied odds are only good if you hit one of the three Qs. Not worth it.

You call here. If you bet you can be reraised out of the pot. You have a good draw to hit and raising + getting called will still not throw off the villian on your range. Only the fishiest fish will pay off a flush/straight on the river if you raised on the turn.

I’m seeing more trouble here than staff does.

Villain’s range could include 66, 55 and a better flush draw (A6.) All of those are very consistent with an EP limp and call preflop.
Against any of those hands, we have no folding equity, along with thin odds to stick around. We’d be idiots to build this pot any faster.

When a loose player starts methodically jacking up the pot, I find I go home richer if I make room for the thought that he might have a hand.

Assuming most of our outs are good, and that we can get paid more on the river if we hit, a call is defensible. But those are both iffy, and the narrative on this table suggests we can keep making money on less risky propositions. I voted fold.
