Be the one drawing to the nuts on
If you flop nutz on the flop then the objective is to maximize profit right. If you are drawing with multiple outs. Or what I think of as a drawing hand then you are limiting risk until you are holding nutz.
Now if playing for adrenaline rush then recommend Craps.
Statiscally speaking it's (almost) always better to have the nuts in the flop than just drawing to it. There's a specific case that a draw can have more chances of winning than the nuts on the flop. If the flop is As3d4d, while the nuts is 25, 56s has better odds.
