      I definitely agree that a bigger cbet is better, because the board is so drawy, and if you had a hand you'd want to protect it.

      I've got in this situation quite often as well, where I feel that I'm playing too predictably (eg. cbetting then abandoning the hand if any resistance). I get suspicious that people are floating me, but don't know if there's much I can do out of position. (Since a second barrel is often very costly because they often actually have a hand)

      Any suggestions from more experienced players for situations like this would def. be appreciated.

      Board is so drawy that there is nothing wrong c/f.
      He would call a lot of hands here and you may be drawing dead.
      Against players who would float a lot best option imo is bet only if you have real hand.
