      I could't stop myself from c-betting (Like always... :) ) even though it's likely he has an Ace.

      Hello,

      Nice hand, well played. Except you have to make the CBet bigger, ~$1.80.

      Best regards,
      Rensu

      Veriz, Is there a point to make the c-bet size always 2/3 of the pot?
      I'm mean, it might help to be unreadable as you c-betting 2/3 of the pot with the nuts and you are are c-betting 2/3 of the pot as a bluff. But about a marginal hand? Do I want to c-bet 2/3 too?

      Lets take an example, if you had Ax here, would you bet the same amount? No you wouldn't because the board is kinda drawy, you have to protect your Ace. You don't want people to get the understanding that when you have a weak hand then you bet 1/2 and when you have a strong hand 2/3, you have to make the bets same amount.
