lets say you have QJclubs and flop come out Kh 10c 2c a player in front of you makes a bet just raise what they bet if they dont have a nut hand your most likely gunna get a check on the turn and sometimes youll even get a check on the river costing you the minium possible to try and hit that draw. give it a try it works more times than not for me i will take any coments on strategy, thanks

I'm not really a fan of the mini-raise in general. I'd rather raise it up to about 3X what they bet to see a free turn card. Often times I bet the turn anyways trying to represent a set or two pair on a coordinated board like that so even if you miss your draw you can still cause a fold.

Yes the "buying another card" trick is definetly more a limit trick than a no-limit trick

Don't always semi-bluff raise, and don't always raise for value. Sometimes it's good to call w/ your draws (given your outs are almost sufficient) and made hands as well (aka slowplaying). The free card play is good, but like all good things, moderation is key. =)

With that good of a draw I would try to get all my chips in the pot alot of the time. I think it is right to raise a smaller draw than that for a free card. With an openended straight and a flush draw I would slow play it hoping they have a strong enough hand to bet the turn so I can raise them then to get more money in the pot.
