      Agree? He can surely bluff me here and there is no card that can come if He checks that I don't want to see except maybe a K which would just be annoying. I think a Set would bet here as my stack is so small compared to potsize and He has those lovely blocking outs to hit the best hand.

      Another Point is I really think i may have got a bit too carried away with the whole Reducing the Size of my cbets thing. What do you think?

      Oh Villain; 19/7 on 2.9k hands. He has 2.4AF, 23 WTS and 61% fold to regular cbet.

      Hey DaPhunk,

      congratulations on NL400! :f_thumbsup:

      About your c-bets, betting ~half pot is ok, but not on such draw heavy boards, I would bet something like 24$. You wouldn't want to make it cheaper for your opponents with QQ+ here.

      About the turn, I think check/raising could be fine, but you have to know he's capable of bluffing/raising. Otherwise it's better to just bet, because when 4th :heart: shows up on the river he's shutting down for sure and you're having better chances to stack him on the turn.


      ...leaving those for Ingol/Gerv/ysessa. :rolleyes:

      Could you post the HEM popup thing ? :rolleyes:

      I would raise bigger preflop because of your position disadvantage so $20 or even 22$ is the way to go.

      On the Turn, if you have decent float statistics (that's why I need your HEM popup) on him, check/R it.

      If he checks behind, still you got the best hand but then you would probably check a 2nd time on the River. That's ok as long as he is capable of pulling out a bluff based on AF, AFq, float stats.

      As the way you played, it is okay as well since People are calling c-bets more lightly and therefore a 2nd barrel with a scarecard can also let people fold in case you had trash here
