The thing is, if you are going to play a hand like JTs OOP, you cant fold to the first bet postflop, especially when you hold TPTK and a BD straight draw!
I dont think you are in great shape postflp, i mean if theer was a FD on and the pot suddenly got big, would you think you had the best hand?
So the reason we arent playing hands like this OOP is to avoid situations like this.

this really sums rush up, this is why it appears to be a more agressive game postflop. people are tightening up and therefore hitting the flop with a stronger range than they are used to. Therefore they not only bet more, but they will call more because KT on a T high board is the nuts to a guy who would usually play T4s.
This is why fold equity is low in these games, because people arent adgusting their range postflop. Preflop they tighten up, but postflop if they hit, they dont have a lower end of their range because they are using their 6-max or FR post flop ranges but are just folding tonnes preflop.
So this is why we have to avoid hands like this OOP. Because our most likely hand is TPGK and if we dont feel comfortable calling a bet with our most likely hand then we should not be playing it.
