      Hey again.

      I make a big cbet (80% pot) and still the villain calls. So I am weary and check the turn, I wanted to take the hand on flop and was a bit pissed because I invested bigger cbet than usual.

      After he calls I think I give up on the hand, do you think it may have been better to continue betting the turn? With nothing I thought there is no value in this and when he bets the river I do not think there is any point for me to call?

      I think it will hardly effect people's decision if you c-bet 1/2 potsized, 80% or 100% potsized on NL5, they either have a hand or they don't. I doubt a general villain will calculate potodds.

      The trick is not to give them the right odds for draws (where 2/3 potsized should be enough on drawy boards) and I don't think going over 2/3 potsized has any effect. So I think you should just be cheap and bet/fold.

      Hi,

      I would not cBet this board because it is coordinated & flushy. Furthermore you want to see 2 people fold so you have to mulitply their % together.
      Eg. both have 60% FEQ => 60%*60% = 36% FEQ you have

      if you bet a bit bigger on the Flop, you can bluffshove the Turn here if you think he has an unpaired draw hand sometimes :)

      Best regards,
      Gerv
