Flopping 2 Pair
How does everyone play this type of hand?
You have 89. 3-5 players see the flop. The pot is 3-5x the big blind, or 6-10x the big blind (a small raise preflop).
The flop comes 89K.
This has happens to me semi regularly because I play connectors if I can. Now, I propose to play this as if you were chasing with J10, or 67 (it already looks like you might be drawing because of what happened preflop)
Is this a good idea? I say yes because if you can make it look like your drawing, with the obvious draw out there, you'll probably get a big raise from someone with AA, AK, QQ, AJ, A10 trying to push you out. What you may need to worry about is K8 or K9, (although I would fold those hands with a raise preflop if I didnt have any position). If you play it like your drawing, you have to worry about someone making a flush draw (if it's not a rainbow flop).
So basically, I'd check after the flop, call or check on 4th st, and then when 5th hits, if there's not an obvious made draw, you'll probably get a raise from AA, AK, QQ, AJ, A10. Depending on how many people are still in, you might consider if someone has trips or the flush (if someone calls the big raise before it gets to you). The most likely outcome is that top pair will big raise you and try to push your "draw" out, the real draws will fold out, and you push all in. Now the top pair is confused and probably thinks your trying to buy it. So he calls and you double up.
Please criticize this, I don't know if I know what I'm talking about or not.
