Miss a draw, what do I do?
Thought I'd ask about a situation where I often lose chips and don't really know how to handle.
So, say I'm the pre flop aggressor with suited connectors. Flop comes and I get an open ended straight draw.
I would normally bet at that as a semi bluff hoping to hit my draw if I'm called. But if I'm called and I don't hit it, what do I do?
Do I just check it out and give it up if I'm raised?
Or should I continue to bet and try and win the pot?
I often find myself doing the latter. Raising on the flop and then checking on 4th and the river seems weak to me and just basically giving up, but betting often loses me some chips.
I realise a specific hand example would help so if I come across a situation ill post it. But hopefully I can get some advice anyway
