Playing loose player IP w/ Low TPTK on flop
Here's a hand I played where I'm up against a pretty loose player, 59/37, and he raises UTG which doesn't really concern me based on the information I have on him. I was planning on a raise, though I didn't 3 bet as I thought this player seemed like he'd call anything and I thought this was a good calling hand for his range.

Spoiler alert! Click to Reveal! As played, I think I did alright, preflop I think was fine, though I am great at playing calling stations with the nuts, this hand flopped a little bit marginally for what I'm used to so here goes. Top pair top kicker on the flop with a flush draw and no suited cards for me. I raise after the flop to his C Bet, which was 100%, my reason being if he had a draw I wanted to charge him for it. I'm trying to get better at reasoning me bets, so I hope this was an appropriate reason/bet size combo. If not, comment away. After his call, I can only imagine he has either a weak ace or a flush draw with clubs. I shouldn't rule out sets, but I just sort of ignored that small chance. After the turn, I feel like I'm in a good spot to raise. He checked, so I got a little carried away and wanted to get the pot in case he had the draw, and with a 30BB cap, I think he still had odds to call, even though I don't necessarily think he was aware of this. I shove to get max value from a call as I think he either calls with the draw or doesn't and letting him peel the river seemed like a bad idea.
Sorry for the long thought section, but I wanted to really go in depth on this hand to get a good idea about charging for draws. Spoiler alert! Click to Reveal!
