      Hi

      I think flop size is too large u shuld just half pot. Turn is not the greatest but given starting positions i think he is likelier to have kx than 9x. Im not putting him on 99/66 that often. So ur line is fine.


      Preflop sizing should be 80-1.00. Ur small size is more suitable if u are using a wide bluffing range.

      What is the thinking behind the half pot flop bet?
      Value rather than protection?

      I think it's an ok hand but I would consider check river because his range also include most pocket pairs

      But most definitely I would play like you

      I halfpot with my entire range so that I can bluff at a cheaper price. I don't think a 75c or 100c bet changes his calling range at all. We can easily get stacks in by the river because this is a reraised pot and the pot is already huge

      It has nothing to do with protection.

      Do you half pot in 3bet hands or all hands where you are preflop raiser?

      In 3bet pots, you can probably halfpot all streets and get all the money in by the river.

      For single raised pots, you'll probably need 70% pot on all streets to get all the money in. That's not to say i should always bet 70% pot, I should be flexible in my bet sizing. I do halfpot certain board textures at times in single raised pots. But in general I just bet smaller in 3bet pots.

      And in 4bet pots (if i 4bet and opponent didn't 5bet but called), i will cbet 35-40% of the pot. Reason being people have to call like 15-20bb and while that is small relative to pot size, that's a very huge bet in terms of BBs.
