re: Poker & Using Limit Hold em Tactics to No Limit Hold em
When I continuation bet in NL, I do usually bet half the pot. If I'm the preflop raiser in limit, I will mostly bet the flop as well. There are a couple of things to be said about this though:
1. A continuation bet is best made heads-up. You're not going to move a whole table off of a broadway 3-flush when you're holding 7-7. And with many callers, the pot will be big with many people in it (especially if you raised PF) that a lot of people will have odds
2. You have to play reasonably tight for this to work. Your opponent must expect to be behind when you bet, and if you habitually raise preflop with T8o, then they simply won't respect your flop bets once they figure that out. If they know that your range includes pocket pairs, AK and AQ, then unless they hit the flop they can figure to be behind most of your holdings.
Having said that, and going a little bit offtopic, here's something I never do: I never slowplay a flop when I raised preflop. The way this ties in is because if I want people to fold when I bet missed flops, I have to actually bet the flops that hit me as well. Besides, if you raise preflop with AKs, and hit an AK7 flop, then no one will believe you when you check either way, and you'll just end up giving away free cards to hands like QT and stuff.
