      with a flushed board i would have checked behind, delay Cbet the turn with the 8 popping up may have scared him off if he had a made flush with you representing a full house, but its unlikely.

      You should have tried to fire the 2nd bullet or just check/fold from flop.

      I think on such flops you need to cbet a bit more to put pressure on the draws - there are plenty of them and you don't have to assume being against made flush. But on the turn I won't shove it simply because I want to save some money if he has a flush or something or if he'll draw out on the river.

      Bigger cbet must have bigger impact on him.

      In terms of a higher c-bet would that be 3/4 or Potsized?

      I like it almost pot-sized. I mean, if you bet $2 here it'll be fine since you'll still be having $2 more so there will be room to back off and still you put much more pressure on him.

      It may not work with maniacs who chase any draws with any odds, which is rather common strategy on lower limits btw, but will be profitable once you reach the limit with reasonable ones.

      Don't forget this bigger cbet is your only chance. In such a pot the first one to bet takes it down, but if he faces a raise or even a call, he's probably doomed.
