      Hello matusko,

      Against what kind of opponent are we on that we can often even decide whether to CBet the flop or not but CBetting there is totally fine. On river you just don't beat anything and folding is the best play, they would often shove there with a very strong hand, it's never a bluff.

      Best regards.

      ty, btw against which oponents wouldnt you cbet? I Cbet with AK like almost 100% of the time
      The reason is when Im in position I get 2 cards for 1 bet(might hit, and if I dont Cbet it could probably make an oponent with like AQ fire on the turn)

      It a lot depends on the opponent, how loose is he, how often does he fold to CBets, how often does he raise CBets and in 3bet pot the CBet will cost you a lot and putting that into wrong opponents could make it easily negative profit.
