Its so much more coomplicated than that. I wouldnt know where to start really.
Just a few tips. Wet boards are boards that may have connected better with the majority of calling hands. (therefor players who may still be in the hand during the flop)
If the board is very wet .Meaning something like Jh,Th,9c, like micro suggested earlier, then is is highly unlikely
that one bet will get every single villain off the hand.
Example: lets take a few hands : Ah,Qh,
and awhole lot more , the list is endless, have all connected with the flop ( jh,Th,9c) and will 99% be willing to call huge raises and take it to the river.
These kind of boards are boards you should be very careful with because there are many cards that may turn your hand into the second best hand and these kind of flops are flops that have connected with the majority of players.
Dry flop are flop like 5x5xJx, or 2,6,K, rainbow. These are the type of flops that you can be less worried about people drawing out on you and the likelyhood that anyone has connected with these kind of flops is a lot less because there are only a few more cards in the deck related to these cards and the likelihood that the villain has one is usually low.
Just be careful, when being aggressive, about what type of board you are betting into and how likely it is that your villains may have connected. If they are calling large bets and you dont have the stone cold nuts (or even near) then it would be wise to slow down if the board is too wet.
