      I would c-bet more, like 7.5-8BB, but that's more than half of your stack, so I think push would be the best option here for max FE.

      Hello,

      I wouldn't CBet at all against such opponent and the board is kinda ugly also, so Check/Fold.

      Best regards,

      nice hand i dont see any reason in betting bigger on the flop it hits our range just perfect and c/f after his call.

      This board is pretty draw heavy(straight and flush draws possible) and for this reason I always c-bet more. Specially I wouldn't want to give my opponent so good odds to call when I do hit the board. So, would you say betting bigger in such spots is wrong? Or should I only c-bet less when I miss the board because of same FE with smaller and bigger bet against only one opponent?
