How can you hand range somebody who opens from button preflop and then cbets flop 100% either as a bluff or for value?
I feel totally lost then.
Okay now we're getting somewhere
Let's say villain opens 40% of hands on the button and you flat call in the blinds.
You believe that he is cbetting this flop 100% of the time.
His preflop range was; 44+,A2s+,K2s+,Q4s+,J7s+,T7s+,97s+,87s,A3o+,K7o+,Q8 o+,J8o+,T9o
And now when he bets the flop his range is still:
If you flop a medium strength hand and donk out most of these hands here would/should fold. If you check, ALL of them will bet. What is better? Obviously you want him to bet here.
With experience you'll get better at this. At the micros not many villains are betting the flop turn and river with air. Some just bet the flop and give up. Some are more balanced and will make some timely 2nd barrel bluffs mixed in with their value bets but most players are just bad. If you study, and practice assigning ranges while at the tables and estimating your equity against those ranges it'll start to make more sense to yo.
