      UTG: $10.15
      Hero (MP): $10.00
      CO: $9.65
      BTN: $10.48
      SB: $9.62

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero is MP with 3 :club: 3 :spade:
      1 fold, Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, BB calls $0.20

      Flop: ($0.65) 4 :diamond: 3 :heart: J :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $0.60, BB folds

      Villain is unknown.

      Given the fact that he is not fullstacked and is thus possibly not a very strong player, does it make sense to cBet this big with our monster hand? The idea of such size being that we want to maximize our value vs Jx, since it is calling anyway. Although with this bet size we get more fold equity vs all PPs + A high, thus it might still be too big? + we don't even know for sure that villain is indeed a bad player. Just because he is fullstacked it does not mean he is loose.

      Hi,

      Even weak players would understand that big bets mean strong hands. Although I don´t think he would c/f there Jx, he may easily c/f his medium pp-s. I would c-bet there my standard amount 0.3$ and I can always overbet river if I feel he is not folding to my turn bet

      best regards,

      $0.30 sounds ridiculously small. Might I ask Veriz to take a look? I too believe that $0.60 is on the other hand a bit too big, but surely, the best amount ought to be somewhere in the middle at the very least. ~$0.55 seems like a good amount vs an unknown non-fullstacked guy.

      Hello Avatars91,

      According his stack I'd play the same way, doubt that there is a huge difference how much we Bet. Though we might go for like 45 cents or so.

      Best Regards.
