      pretty standard - nh :)

      1 thing i will say is this..
      the board is extremely dry. that means it's hard for him to have a hand to call/raise you with. if he does call here, he has a better hand than you. if he folds then you win the 11.5bb pot, but you risked 10bb for that when you could have risked maybe 7bb for the same outcome. this way, you save those ~3bb for all the times that he calls you. add this up and you shave off some losses.

      the reasoning isnt that you don't have a hand, but more that it's hard for him to call with anything here. the general rule of thumb is - dry flop = smaller bet. wet flop = bigger bet.

      Hello MeAmor22,

      Pretty standard spot to CB, though on a dry board as mentioned about you don't need to CB that much.

      Best Regards.
