      I've been trying to reduce my contibets a little as an experiment, based on some things I've been reading in Xarry's posts. It allows you to get away from some hands you might otherwise be committed to. On the other hand it makes it possible to give up in some situations where we might be ahead. What do you think about this hand?
      Thanks

      I cbet 1/2 pot on dry boards and 2/3rds on wet boards myself. This is not a good spot to reduce your cbet size imo.

      In your situation I think I'd just shove it on flop, as played though I fold. MinRraise = nuts in my book.

      Yeah, I agree with DaPhunk that this is not a good board for a small c-bet and I also go with the shove directly on flop.

      Agree with DaPhunk and dandycal. Make a c-bet of 2/3 in this wet board and you have a trash hand since a K kills your game. Vilain show strenght, so correct fold.

      Hey Tim64,

      I would prefer to raise 6BB preflop so you can easily shove any flop if you get called, because you have to play OOP.

      As played, I agree smaller c-bet on wet boards doesn't play well, so I would stick with standard 2/3 in this case, but since that would be ~50% of your stack I would just shove flop. You still have some backdoor draws, so you should be fine.

      Regards,

      I would do exactly as burek2000 - raise 6$ or even 7$ (against ybercoldcaller) and shove any flop.
