      Preflop bet and c-bet on the flop are well played, but you have to fold on the flop when you get reraised.

      Yes. You hit nothing on flop so fold if you meet any resistance to your c-bet.

      Hi Gredal,

      This is getting a bit more advanced but if your c-bet is like 40%~ of your stack and you are out of position, push it instead for maximum value and fold equity.

      Pushing postflop is my choice close to Bet/Call for the odds.

      If you are not familiar with Odds/Outs, making a continuation bet and folding to resistance is the standard play but calculating if you bet 40% of your stack out of position post-flop before you do anything is not really hard to do.

      Best regards,
      Gerv
