Should we be trying to get all the money in OTF here?

Yeah I would think so. There are a of turn cards that can kill our action. Villains range should be strongest UTG and if he has an overpair I wouldn't want to see a card on the turn that can slow both of us down.

On a board like this villain can put us on several pair plus draw combos when we raise which makes it tough to get away from those overpairs.

Hi dirt,

I am always getting the money in on the flop here. Villains can have many worse hands that feel like they need to protect on a 3 straight flop, 77, 66 and maybe premium pairs if he overvalues them. He may get jiggy with 99. Not really figuring him for 54, so only T9 is ahead of us, but obviously we have equity vs. the straight. Even if we take T9s and 54s all combos, that's 8 straights max, smaller sets are 6 combos alone, AA/KK adds 12 more combos, maybe a couple 99's overplaying... we quickly get to about 20 reasonable combos of worse hands for him to show up with. So I would rate us to be ahead more often than not, and equity to provide some level of insurance for our troubles when he does have the straight.
