      It's very much depending on the board and the amount of players in the pot, on wet boards, multiway pots or with a vulnerable hand you should probably be more likely to bet 75% pot while on very dry boards or with top set etc. you should maybe only bet 55% pot.

      Not really the correct board for this topic so I've moved it to our No Limit board :)

      +1 to that.

      there is no overall right or wrong way to approach bet sizing. you could bet 2/3 all the time but vs an epic whale would you not be missing out on value? and if you are bluffing vs a complete fit/fold nit then you will print money when you bet smaller and he plays exactly the same way. it's more about looking for spots where you can exploit your opponents. keep your eyes out for situations where it makes sense to bluff cheaply and value bet heavily. the reverse is also true at other times and we should bluff large and value bet small. you'll have to experiment yourself to figure this out though because nobody can tell you really. the main thing to keep in mind is that you should never just have a blanket bet sizing that is always the same (as long as your opponents aren't exploiting you for it).
