Because it was a very dry flop. I mean, against which hands should I have defended? I don't see any. And by checking I was hoping he would bet since there was an Ace and he might try to scare me.
Yeah I hear you man.
However, you just realize, c-betting all flops is fairly standard.
Villains will just call and float with nothing to see if you will continue. They will call with bottom pair. They will call with PPs also.
Plus you smashed the flop, so why wait to get money in there? Villains will usually call the flop. Even if villain folds, you won the hand, and you tried to get value.
And you had blockers anyways, villain is not going to bet your hand for you.
C-bet most times. Don't slow play anything unless you flop a straight flush, quads, or the nut FH.
If you had missed the flop, would you check? Maybe so...
I c-bet most times HU, even if I missed. 2/3 of the time, they miss too.
