I am wondering if english is your mother language but.. let me try to help. I would make a strong bet on the flop then if i miss next card again bet but low bet and on the river is usseles to say, if i hit the flop i would raise to all in if not it really depends of the situation if your opponent waits something too you can bluff him but it depends of you if you can understand it. In total we can't help much here it depends from the situation, the opponents, and your gaming style . :)

I know you have heard to never chase an inside str8. I never do and most of the time that card just don't come and I've lost money I could have used on a better hand. The flush draws are different. A lot of players will call flush draws all the way because they have a lot more outs. My rule is, and I don't know why, if I'm on a flush draw and if I don't hit on the turn, I fold. Many times it's a good fold, but it's a bad fold sometimes too. It's gambling and it takes a lot of thinking. GL to you

To start I never go after inside straight. I almost pretend that possibility is not even there.

For other straight or flush draws, it depends on the players, preflop action and your position. If I have tight players and I made a preflop raise I will C-bet and hope to take it down. If I have aggressive players checking to me, I will take the free card. I could go on an on here.

draws is way too large of a category for general advice. the example you give it a gutshot with undercards where you likely have 4 outs. other examples might be a straight flush draw with 2 overcards with 21 outs. these 2 situations vary a great deal, as will your position, the number of opponents you face and their tendencies.

Depends on your stack your opponents stacks your position, number of players who will call, number of aggros who will raise etc.

well like every hand, what is your position? If you're first to act I'd say lead out with a bet about half the pot. This will generally give you a good idea where you are at in the hand. Depending on how many players you're up against as well. If you're FTA and there are more than one players after you to go, then maybe check there, you wouldn't want to lead out into a player or players holding a strong top pair or better right cause you're obviously just going to get raised and maybe re raised. then what? Do you keep going with money already committed?? and at best just flated(called) so there is no right or wrong answer here it's all situational but as a general rule of thumb I would ultimately say if you're first to act in a multi pot, check, then in position last to act after players(s) check, bet something to make it appear as if you hit the flop so if you do get flatted and ifff and when you do hit that big boy straight, flush, or straight flush on the turn, or river, it won't necessarily appear as if you was betting on a draw. Betting a draw does help disguise it but it won't help you catch the card you fishing for!

bluffing doesn't work nearly as good online as it does live but you're right chasing cards is not too smart and neither is bluffing. Do you pre flop raise with suited connectors on the button for flop value is the question either way if you make your flush or straight or get lets say top pair with a draw and giving you'r C bets more fold equity. That's good value in my opinion

Your chances of filling are about 16 percent on the turn and 8 percent on the river, so you are going to have to get really good pots odds to stay in for an inside straight. Odds are much better to hit one end of an open ended straight or have one card to fill a flush

f opponents are tight aggressive, loose passive, if that, if we were in a vacuum I mean unknown enemy as well as against loose passive. It's not prpfile and not dogma, it's just how I play.

there's a reason they call it a gutshot :) fold

the situation you describe is not a strong draw
imo a strong draw has 15 or more outs like 78 hearts on a 56x board with any two hearts
