I have situations where I am playing for a gut shot straight draw (trying to be sneaky).
Here is an example-you get five limpers and I have a had hand like J9o (In case your wondering, I was not playing this out of position). The flop would be something like T, 7 2 off. A guy in early or mid would make it $25 and get at least one or two callers before the action gets to me. I would then call. The turn would always be a brick to my draw and the better would make the second bet and I would then fold or if it checks around to me on the turn I would usually check (gladly getting a free river card) and of course brick that also.
Question-first, should I have call to begin with?
Once I call:
Even when it gets checked around to me-should I bet if a brick comes? what if an A,K,Q (providing that K or Q is the top card on the board) hits the turn-should I bet if check around to me?
Other than a flush draw completing on the turn or river-is there any other situation where you would either re-raise the bettor on the turn or river in this situation with the multiple callers?
