Hi there yashwant2808,

Firstly, may I welcome you to PSO.

I moved your thread into the 'Advanced Poker Discussion' section as it has a much better chance of getting a good answer here.

I may also change the title at a later date. Members tend to skip over questions if the title is not very specific.

Your question is very good however. I'm not a 5 card draw player but I have notified a member here at PSO who will be able to give you some solid advice. I'm sure he will reply as soon as possible.

Again, great to see you here. Why not put a post in the New Members Section and introduce yourself.

Remember, any questions just ask, we're here to help.

There are alot of factors in these decisions.

1) reads on any opponents. Do they always limp? How much do they bluff if they miss? Are their bets standard or is this different from normal?

2) How many cards are the opps drawing? If I'm last to act, this could determine what to do. If the opps are all drawing 3 cards, then they probably have a pair. If they draw 1, they're probably drawing to a straight or flush or already have 2 pair. If anyone before you stands pat and raises big before the draw, you know they have a premium hand.

3) how many do you need for the flush, 1 or 2 cards?

With the limpers, especially if I'm last to act, then I'm using the info gained by how many the opps draw to help determine this (if they're all drawing to pairs, then I'd think my AA might be good and go that way... or... if I'm 1 to a flush and all the other opps are drawing 1, then I might go with the flush).

Without that other information, it's really hard to give you a direct answer as there are many other factors that will need to be used to make those determinations.

If you have any hand histories from these situations, please use the hand replayer (it works for 5 card draw too) and post in the hand analysis forum and we will gladly give our opinions on them.
