Silver Article on C-bets - I'm confused

      This quote is taken from the article on continuation bets from the NL Silver section.:

      "Application from out of position

      The major difference between a continuation bet in position and one OOP is the ability to take a free card if the continuation bet does not succeed. This makes a continuation bet a better choice in some OOP situations where you might have taken a free card from in position. It also makes check somewhat of a better choice OOP since you know you won't get any free cards in later rounds."

      I'm not sure I entirely understand the final sentance. Could anyone explain? It seems to contradict the previous sentance...

      Thanks in advance.

      Hey Tim64,

      This article is really old (over 2 years) and the translation is admittedly quite bad.

      It should read like this

      "The major difference between a continuation bet in position versus one OOP is the ability to take a free card instead of firing a continuation bet - as well as winning the chance of taking a free card on the turn. Since this is not possible OOP, a continuation bet will often be the best choice of action in situations where you would have taken a free card IP. It also means checking might be the best solution in certain situations, since you can't 'buy' a free card for later rounds - by firing a continuation bet.
      "

      Best regards

      edit: p.s. did you already amend the mistake - because it seems to have changed on my screen?
