      Hi.

      I usually prefer just getting it in immediately. We are usually up against a flush draw. He reps mostly 99 or flush draws here, maybe we are against TT/JJ as well.

      As played having the diamond makes it kind of tricky, but it makes calling more acceptable as opposed to 3betting the Flop (we block flushes from his range on the Turn, and we may have a redraw against smaller flushes or sets).

      If we had no diamond here I would probably fold the Turn cos we lose to everything now.

      When some one have 32% of raise flop cbet how big it is ( in pratice what ranges and hodings)? Does he have many pure bluffs in such spot or at least Ad x blocker hands or do you think he is c/r with decent equity? Mine raise flop cbet is around14-15 % is it to low(and i tend to raise at least with gut s + backdoors) , whats yours and how do you balance ?

      I think on the flop pretty standart raise is about 7.50. But after he will have in the stack a bit more then potsize on the turn.
      So his sizing is considered good if he has bluff / semibluff to push the turn.

      It think both decesions on the flop are almost equal. I would make decision depending on our dinamic most of the time. Without dinamic I am inclined to just call vs cbet-raise 23. Without dimond it's better to just push the flop.

      Anyway we have to put whole our stack bvb either on the flop, or on the turn.

      32% = a ton of air, and he probably raises with a merged range as well (some top pairs and overpairs).

      About what pokerferrer said - True, usually people raise smaller if they were more polarized. This larger size is way more likely to be a draw which makes me want to get it in now.
