  • is this a flop cbet ? if so is the cbet size too low ?

    actually I think this is a cbet as I can easily rep the ACE

    probably I need to get bigger because if I have what I am trying to rep I want to protect vs Flush , vs Straight

    problem if I cbet and get called and turn bricks I pretty much have to give up (as it happened here) whereas if I check and it gets check back I see a free turn and I can delayed Cbet or I can check call and maybe it goes check check turn

    I would check back on the flop a lot ... Anyone of the two can make a move on you ... Clearly we have very different approaches to the game...

    why would u bet flop , but check fold that turn ? I'd rather not bet flop

      I think I flip a coin on continuation there... you can rep the A easily and you have backdoor flush draw and any face card to improve... unless you have info on those players, I think you have a very reasonable call on the turn...depends on how many bluffs and 2nd pairs you put in opp range... so also nets out as a coin flip for me...

        I don't hate the cbet... sometimes. With two players one good and one not so good in the hand, one of them is going to hit this flop. The bet size was good but for the line in general but I probably pass in this spot but that's my game. The factor that makes the difference is firing the cbet is better suited to your image but one the turn pairs the flop, you correctly shut down.

          correctly chk fold turn or correctly check turn ?? So that means his flop cbet is a joke ... should always call and see what he does on turn ...

          betting air into 2 opponents only to check fold turn ?

        I think it probably should be a c-bet here.

        Obviously it would be better with QcJc but you're going to have to balance your value hands here and a GS with a BDFD (which is clearly not 'air'...) is nearly as good as it gets.

        Size seems good as we don't have a huge number of value hands here so no need to go bigger.

        Any K, 9 or diamond on the turn and you can fire off that second barrel if you've got callers on the flop. Here though we bricked and CF is fine by me.
