      $0.15/$0.30 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      SB: $34.30 (114.3 bb)
      BB: $29.07 (96.9 bb)
      MP: $40.87 (136.2 bb)
      Hero (CO): $47.85 (159.5 bb)
      BTN: $33.61 (112 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with 7 7
      MP folds, Hero raises to $0.90, 2 folds, BB calls $0.60

      Flop: ($1.95) K A K (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $1, BB folds

      $1.95 pot ($0.09 rake)
      Final Board: K A K
      BB mucked and lost (-$0.90 net)
      Hero mucked 7 7 and won $1.86 ($0.96 net)

      I have one single question there:
      Against an uknown player (supposedly fishy, because of the stacksize) is it a standard Cbet spot or not?:)

      Hey Cusbakoppanny,

      The answer in a lot of cases is dependent on how wide you feel comfortable bluff-catching the turn. So if you checked back here with 77, would you feel comfortable bluff-catching if villain were to bet.

      Generally speaking, the weaker your showdown value the more often you should turn it into a bluff. For example you could potentially fold out 88 here with a cbet. You don't really gain much if 66 folds. If you have 22 you can fold out even more combinations of better hands.

      Usually a villain won't be completely unknown though. Even if villain has only folded 1/1 times to a cbet I'd begin by cbetting as a bluff very often.
