    nice video, I like your theory videos in general.
    From my experience, the downside of such small bet sizes is that agro fish get too often induced and raise as crazy, it is great vs passive guys, and most of regs super rarely bluff raise, but they do merge their raise range (top pair +, but usually good kicker, which is still ok, it is important that they dont bluff too often). So I use this a lot, with a difference to your approach that the hands that are too vulnerable I still bet a big higher e.g. 33% bet size I don't want oop to on turn to give so good pot odds to overcards and I usually overbet bluff river with such protection hands when I get called since most players are having super obvious range). So, imo such small protection bets are really fatal weapons at micros, as long as regs dont start bluffing (will happen rarely anyway).

    I liked the video, but I must say that it confuses me a bit where is the line between protecting our hand and not giving good pot odds to villains ¿?¿? I mean, I understand it is not EV+ to give free cards and neither betting big against stronger callings ranges, but by underbetting vulnerable hands we often give very good odds as well, is there anyway to prevent this to happen or is just the way it is?
