Not betting ofte I get, but what is the logic behind sizing small o. wet flops? every source on cbetting says wet flop=big bet

I've noticed it as well, I just don't know what to do on turns. I've been studying cbetting a lot recetly but it's a struggle

After c/r i guess I can oly call because of SPR. Should I be check often on a flop like this?

I'm working at my cbet game, and I'm not going to lie, I'm struggling.
So, from my notes on cbetting:
Dry boards: Barrel wide, size small.
Low card boards: Cbet more. We want to deny equity. size bigger
Possibly best (marginal made) hands that can use protection: bet small
So the sizing is confusing but I chose to go 2/3 to deny equity from Q,K,A

What do you think?

If we assume villain donks flop and cbets turn with Ax/Kx we have 20% and pott odds are 25%. Do we fold or call because implied odds? then again he could have improved to a straight although we block QQ.

I don't have enough reads to be able to assume weather villain would fold to a bluff assuming he has A/K. Besides I have some SDV in case they missed a draw. So I believe chekinh is fine?

I'm pretty sure the author of the grinder's manual is the same who did the form the ground up videos (peter clarke). so maybe it's more or less kind of the same content and not wrth it if you alrady have the from the ground up video courses

I play micros at the moment, but I had to make this post here.
I was on a webinar the other day, and the coach said that you need a player with at least 50%vpip on the table to make money. or 3 villains being close to 40%.

I said " There are plenty of fish in the micros, and even then sometimes I'm strugglig to find fish because all the tables with the fish have huge waitig lists.. so what do you do on higher stakes where there aren't any fish?"
To which he replied "There are fish even up to NL200/400, there's no shortage of fish"

I have to say I am astonished by his answer.

What is your experience? Are there so many fish in these stakes?
Or is it like there aren't so many but you'll encounter enough that will be your main source of income?
And how do you find the fish if there aren't so may, do you have multiple sites open, going through tables until you find them?

Or does most of your income come from exploiting small edges on tight regs?

Thanks

I'm no pro but how i've been improving is trying to implement something specific each time until I become very good at it and move to the next thing. I haven't watched from the groun up but I think it should have chapters with fundamentals. so like read a chapter say, opening ranges and for a week play and focus on that, don't pay any attention to post flop. maybe even fold every hand until you get the ranges right. next focus on calling ranges, and finaly 3bettig ranges. you can actually leran these without even playing actually, just memorize them . next move to the next chapter, which might be cbetting. take notes on what boards are good to cbet and other otes you find hepfull. then practise that and mark hands for review everyday. by the end of the week look at yout progress and if you're ready to move into the next fundamental, and so on and so forth..

when i started i went ahead and read through grinder's manual 30 minutes every day and played everyday. it kind of helped but i wasn't really focused so I didn't improve too much. lately I'm trying to focus on specific things and not move on until I feel I have improved a lot on that and I've made huge progress.

I'd suggest reading sky matsuhatsi's "how to study poker". It goes into detail on how to study, similar to what I said already.

Good luck

Feb. 21, 2020 | 11:46 p.m.

probably 99, maybe 88. 65/54 is better because it has less SDV?

I know it's 50% for pot sized bet, however in this case, villain's bet is less than pot and my stack is even less. so in this case mdf=pot+my stack.

Anyway, so I guess it's ok to defend below mdf, even against lags then?

Pretty sure this bet is bad. I think c/c is better. As played I think calling is fine. Villain's range has a lot of 8, very few A, pairs like 66-JJ, he can also be bluffing with something like K9 or JT

Reviewing the hand at first, I thought this is a bad call, since we are probably beat by better aces and sets. Having done the math though, MDF is at 68% and if I did everything correctly, we should call with every A in our range, plus KK, QQ, K8, Q8. Villain is probably not a nit, his vpip/pfr is 35/23 although sample size is only 27.

Villains flop c/r is the main reason I call, as I feel he could have a weaker K or AQ, I dont think he has any 7, and we block KK, but I do fear he bluffed w QQ on the flop and got lucky. So I guess we have more reasons to call rather than fold here?
