Flopped Straight or Flush Draw

You should usually bet out heads up if you flop a good draw aiming to take the pot there and then. This also combines well with you betting when you do have a good pair. Check calling is weak play heads up.
Dont bet a draw if theres a good chance you will be raised. Check calling is fine and raising when you improve.
Evaluate your pot odds.

In one post someone asked if he was too aggressive, he got this good reply, in particular number 3)
With those stats I would think an ideal flop aggression factor would be 3-3.3, so you might be slightly aggressive but nothing out of line. Your play is probably good, but you could ask yourself the following questions: 1) Am I autobetting every flop where I raised preflop? If so, maybe stop autobetting when you have 3 callers. Or, don't autobet flops like J97 2-suited against 2 callers when you have completely missed with 55 or even AK. 2) Am I autoraising flop with overcards when they donk into me? If so, try calling some flops if you have some backdoor outs and folding turns unimproved. 3) Am I autobetting every straight or flush draw I get a free look from the BB? Try check-calling and checkraising a later street if you improve
