      Im going with this advice ;)

      Pushing here for FE would be bad as you would need runner Queen or King to get FH. So c-bet, if he calls check/fold
      If he folds well self-explanatory.

      I doubt there's much difference if you bet 2/3 of the pot. On the contrary, you loose less many with a 1/2 pot contibet and it's still quite strong. So nice hand, in my opinion.

      Well it differs in my opinion:
      Assume that you - as this Villain - thinks that Mackenzie will push on any turn card.

      Giving him implied odds of $2.7 + $1.7 +$0.2 : 0.9 = 5.11:1

      if you bet 2/3 of the pot and then push you get:
      $3.6 : 1.2 = 3:1

      Thus giving him lower pot odds.
      As an addition, my c-bet size is according to the Stats I have on Villain (fold flop/Fold turn).
      If he folds 33% of the time on the Flop, I bet 1/2 . If he folds 40% on the flop, I bet 2/3

      In the first place, implied odds for what? He's not drawing to anything.
      In the second place, the idea with the halfpot contibet on a dry flop is something I learned from a video by Xarry. You should ask him about it in the next coaching maybe.

      do you remember the reasons for the 1/2 pot bet that xarry explained?just because you lose less money and its strong the same or are there different things to it?

      It's still strong, you lose less money, you can go all-in on turn either way, you don't have to worry about giving odds with your short stack... that's all I remember.

      Hi jmackenzie,

      since this board has absolutely no draws you can bet half pot, you don't have to balance your lines on this limit. So well played nice Hand. I would also recommend to play your Ax hands this way because you don't have to protect against anything and you can push the turn easily. But please look at the Board when you make 1/2 contibets.

      Best Regards

      Ysessa
