      He proably has some weak hands like AQ, TT, JJ. Maybe I should check, flop, turn and only bet the river if he does not decide to bluff?

      Hi SF,

      Why do you cbet so big? That's one of the best flops after you 4bet, nothing can outdraw you really, no action killer cards either... Why bet 1/2 pot?

      Checking is also an option though I much rather cbet about 1/4 pot and go from there.

      Why bet 1/2 pot?


      to make it look like a bluff. I usaully use this sizing as bluff. If I bet like 1/4 tehn he really migth think that its for value.

      If you bet 1/4 and think it looks like for value, why don't you bluff that sizing? Make sure you don't mirror your thinking into your opponent's because everyone thinks different and you have to find out how they think, not what you would do in their spot.

      I am not sure, maybe I should do. But I remembered this:

      NL25 AKo OOP

      and there you said 1/3 is bad, so that was also reson to cbet bigger. But did not remember if it was 4bet or 33bet pot when I played.

      So because its 4bet pot, I can cbet lower for value.

      So can I really bluff cbet also 1/4 there?

      That is a 3bet pot with different SPR. In a 4bet pot your range is even more full Kx or better as a percentage of your whole range plus notice the stacks. Here you can easily stack off, while there when you bet so small, you have to bet quite different sizing on turn and/or river to get it in. At the same time, when it's a 3bet pot, you should have more bluffs in your range, while in a 4bet pot you have less bluffs, at least percevied so a smaller bet would bet just as much credit since it already puts pressure on stacks.

      That said, betting 1/2 pot in a bet pot is also OK but I would do it on boards worse for a 4bettor, with more draws that can shove so then you bet about 1/2 pot on flop and ship turn.. But here you can bet/bet/shove, there are not enough bad cards to warrant a bet/shove line imo.
