      2/3 pot would be ~$0.65, that's almost half of your stack.
      But when Villain calls your bet, you'll probably be committed on the turn anyway.

      And pushing the flop gives you much more FE and you'll need that with A high!

      So push flop.

      nh!

      I don't.

      For me it's a perfect example of when to make a normal 2/3 pot (so $.6) bet. It's all about stack:pot ratio. When it dangerously comes nearer to 1 (and fall below), it's a push case.

      Does that have to do anything with the dry board?
      Or just the pot : stack ratio?

      Oh it may. I mean, you cbet more and push less on dry board. With drawy one you don't want you oponent to get sufficient odds, so put as many money as possible in.
