WPH #483: Rampage Poker With ACES In A HORRIBLE Spot!

Have you ever wanted to know how to play draws perfectly? Well look no further as Jonathan Little gives you everything that you will need to play straight draws & flush draws PERFECTLY!

It is important to remember that all flush draws and straight draws do NOT have the same value! Generally draws that have overcards to the board will have more equity, especially if your opponent has a marginal holding like a pair.

Flush & Straight draws are incredibly profitable hands if you play them correctly. Here are 3 quick tips to help you make the best possible decision when you have a draw:

1. Raise more often against small bets 2. Raise more often from out of position 3. Do NOT raise high equity draws that would have to fold to a re-raise


Small bets will indicate frequent bets, this means that your opponent will be betting with a very wide range that cannot often face too much aggression. For this reason you should raise frequently to apply pressure to your opponent’s marginal hands. On the flip side, you should raise less often against large bets and you should actually fold more often when facing a larger bet size, especially with your worst draws.


From in position, you will realize your equity well. From out of position, you won’t! Position is power in poker! Imagine playing a game of rock/papper/scissors and always getting to act last. You would win every single time! Poker isn’t as simple as this but it gives you a good idea on the importance of position.

🔥 Do NOT Raise/Fold Your High Equity Draws 🔥

Draws with decent equity that would have to fold to an all-in usually do not raise. It is a disaster when you have a lot of equity but are forced to fold to a huge raise size as you will often not be getting the correct price to mathematically call.
