as another example, you are dealt 2356-x in the CO, open, both blinds call and both draw 2. usually i would draw 1 in this scenario, however, i kinda feel that drawing 2 might be the better option.
another scenario could be this: you open HJ or CO with the same draw, get 3bet by a reasonably aggressive player on the BTN, do you take the aggressive route, 4bet and draw one or just flatcall and draw a bit smoother?
1. Not entirely sure what you mean by semi-bluff raise the 2nd draw. If you draw 1 and they draw 2, it's a value bet. If you both draw 1, then it's not a good idea to always bet just because you have position w/ any hand, 6 or no 6, straight draw or no straight draw. It's probably a bit strong to say you should never bet unimproved, but you definitely shouldn't make it the norm.
2. Draw 1 always.
3. Cap and draw 1. Some people have talked about not balancing their 1c range vs nitty opponents who "never" draw 2 when 3-betting and have position on them, so that is an option. Even then, that was probably with hands worse than 6532x.
I think the two times that I tried that the guys who "never" drew more than one drew 2 both times...
The easiest way to make the point about 6s is to note that in the top 10 hands, 7 of them have a 6 in them. 3 of the top 4 do. 13 out of the top 20.
The straight draws that you tend to get with 6s are annoying, but you're essentially throwing away a card that you want to get back, which is pretty silly.
