Default Give my pair and straight draw some love

Well we have a good hand, but how should we play it? Are you raising? Do you just flat call?

MP3 is a very loose and bad calling station.
SB is a new guy and no real reads because he has only been at the table for one or two orbits.

Raise the pot, call a shove.

Shove the turn if he just calls.

In these high equity, low implied odds situations, just get the money in.

Ya, it probably isn't tougher than that. The reason I was thinking about a call, was that I wanted the big fish in the pot as well... but a call gives him great odds if he has a flushdraw or whatever.

That would be cool with the NFD, not when you have a hand with a ton of equity (pot and fold) but is terribly vulnerable to a ton of turns, and has crappy implied odds.
