      Note, this is just my opinion.

      What are you trying to make him fold on the turn?

      Unless villain is agressive im not even sure i would c-bet here since its unlikely we can get much better to fold. And getting value from worse hands are not likely either.

      I wouldif villain is somehwat aggressive I'd bet once and be done with it unless some kind of scarecard lands or we improve.

      I thought he has a small pair like 33,44,55 and i tried to represent a bigger pair.

      Im not sure a bad player will even fold those hands, and if you are targeting those hands its a pretty slim range to bluff vs. what he can have on this board Tx better pocketpairs etc. that will call again.

      So if the villain is aggro i agree with the flop c-bet but not with the second barrel.

      Basically my opinion is, the board didnt change much, so if he called flop he is likely to call again. + we didnt gain any equity.

      Hello NoMistakes,

      CBetting is standard but you should be doing bigger, I don't get the purpose of such a small CB, just inducing for bluffs. But furthermore you can Check behind on the turn, I doubt that you making any pairs/PPs to fold anyways. Any other hands you beat with Ace high.

      Best Regards.
