re: Poker & Ideal "Average All In Equity"
aggression with drawing hands is a fundamental part of winning at poker. It sounds to me like you have the right idea. You do not have to become less agro. Adjust your aggression based on your table image, your opponents betting trends and statistics, your pot odds
, your implied pot odds
, your reverse implied pot odds. Also do not always check raise, you'll find that you don't take down as many pots doing this because you get more calls. Play drawing hands mostly in position so you can be the one who C-bets, and if you are first to act occasionally lead out, showing strength to your opponent. Adding this type of variety to your flop semi-bluffing will earn you enough fold equity to be a +Ev player in the long run.
Also from a theory prospective winning players don't "get it in and flip!" with draws, even big draws. Your objective is to not get to showdown. You will make your money not getting to showdown. Most good players are probably winning 50% of the pots they get to showdown with. your money should be coming from weak players who call bets out of position to see flops. They will call, miss, and regardless of your hand your bet should be sufficient to force a fold. This is an element of the game where aggression is an important function.
Just remember, rather than getting it in on the flop by check raising (which could induce a 4bet pricing you in to an all in) Just bet the flop, and bet 70% on the turn. And if you have it in you, bet again on the river. Triple barreling with draws is so much more +ev then just flipping with guys that have made hands. When you triple barrel with draws your fold equity increases immensely and you obviously can still improve to the best hand.
As a rule of thumb, if your moves are getting better to fold, or getting worse to call, then your doing things correctly.
