Free Card situation happens when you are able to see the next card without the necessity of placing a bet. While being in late position you can raise your chances of earning a free card by raising the bet on the flop from the drawing hand. Seeing the next card isn’t really „free” (you have to raise the bet on the flop)but it is in fact cheaper beacuse of the limited Texas Holdem bidding structure, where placing a bet on the turn and the river is more expensive than on the flop. While thinking of Free Card remember that other players have the possibility of re-raise. Re-raising has it’s advantages, however.
