Live $1/2 game in the Big Blind

jegingrichjegingrich Red Chipper Posts: 14 ✭✭
You are playing live $1/2 and a lag raises to $12 in middle position and gets one caller and you call with A5 of hearts from the Big Blind. Everyone is playing 100 BB deep. The flop is QT6 with two hearts giving you the nut flush draw. Is this a flop you like to donk bet, check/call or check/raise and why? What is your plan on the turn if you check/call and you hit your flush draw; do you still check or lead out? What is your plan on the turn if you check raise and miss you flush draw on the turn?

Comments would be appreciated on what you think is the best line to take.

    I clearly 3b pre. Flatting is exactly what this profile wants me to do.

    I also like 3bet pre. This is a good hand to do it with. You can catch a lot of high equity flops with a hand like this but if you catch a hopeless flop, it's an easy hand to just check fold. No big deal

    I'm definitely 3-betting A5 suited in this scenario.

    On that flop with your pre flop action, I'm not going to donk here but I would consider a x/r drawing to the nut flush with an over. a LAG here is probably going to c-bet this board IMO and I don't want to give him a chance to raise a 12BB bet here to 35BB and put me to a decision on whether I want to play for my whole stack on this draw. My two cents.
