Most cubs I own or have dealt with don't really need or like much choke; remember I'm in the south, though, so very few severe cold starts. Point being, when I ever do flood one a bit, which is fairly easy, it takes several rips with the hand starter to get it to fire up, and mine are in what I would call a good state of tune. If you are getting gas dripping from the weep hole, I would be off the choke immediately, or at 1/4 choke. If your cub is questionable on tuning status, or has not been run in months/years, I would quickly move to a safe pull start (use your drawbar to pull it by, long enough chain between you and pulling vehicle, trans in 3rd gear, etc.).
