      Hi Rello,

      Why did you cbet so large there?

      You have position and you are in a 3-bet pot and need him to fold his air (Ax, Kx, etc) so a 60c bet would achieve the same thing. Villain will not fold pairs just because you bet big.

      Honest answer,

      i have no specific reason for betting large there.

      Should my bet sizing be a little smaller in a 3bet pot?

      Generally in 3-bets pot you cbet a lot smaller, 50-60%. And in this particular case you have to think about the opponents range and what your aim is.

      Generally you cbet one and you are done here and a small bet achieves the same thing.
