I've been having trouble deciding when to c-bet and when not to, I think that I'm definitely over c-betting in most spots but when I make a conscious effort to have a lot of check backs on a certain board I think my checks tend to be too weak. What are the primary thoughts you're running through when making these decisions? How do you go about balancing getting value from your good hands with not being too transparent when you check through, especially on wet boards where there isn't a clear range advantage?

How do you get points and what are they good for? I'm new to this site and this interface is hard to navigate. Is there no search engine on here where I can do a search for "LIVE" MTT amongst other thing that I'm specifically interested in or do we just have the filters and that's it. Doesn't seem to have structure for an easy learning experience. Maybe someone can direct me. Thanks

1. I think the mistake was Phil didn't have more chips ....Phil only shoved after the guy bets 80k on the turn and Phil had a little over 3X times that. Optimally I would think he needed about 7X for this to work with some fold equity. It would be a mistake for the guy not to call. Phil had no fold equity. So unless he thought Ace high was good he was drawing to a 7 to 1 odd shot on over cards which would be negative EV given that pot size.. However if he had more chips and overbet the pot with a bluff for the guys tournament life at risk. The other guy would be hard pressed to call in fear of a full house and busting out of the tournament.
