Hero raises to ???


Blinds are $.50 and $1.00. I don't want to make any mistake here since it could easily cost me my whole stack, raising too little might give him odds to call with a draw, or give him high enough implied odds to draw (look at how deep stacked we both are), but I don't want to chase away an overpair which is almost drawing dead to me. What's the right amount to raise to here?

i make it between $24 and $26. good amount to induce him to shove, and he bet only half the pot on a pretty drawy flop, so we make sure we're not giving him good odds

I'd probably make it $21-$25, but I think pretty much anything in the low-mid 20 range ought to do the trick.

Ya, I think the raise needs to be a fairly big one as that is a very draw heavy board. You don't want to be given your opponents a good price to draw.

I would probably raise it to about $30-$35.

First, I would have folded PF, you are out of position and need to flop a monster to stay in, the implied odds are not good enough. Turns out you flopped your monster, I would have bet of the flop. He would most likely reraise you to see where he is at and protect his hand.

As played, I dont think raising to 30-35 is needed here, he will almost certainly fold. while there are draws you still have outs and one of the straight draws is dead cause it maes your house. Over betting the pot is not needed to ensure you are not giving proper odds. I agree with the others, 20-25 does the trick.
