the other reason is that i think its absolutely terrible when people vary their raise sizing based on hand str. you obv want max val with your x/r value range, and bigger x/r w semibluffs gets more FE and more value, AND, we now have the added benefit of both hand groupings being indistinguishable from one another.
anyway. theres just so much air that b/c's a flop raise that i cant see CO folding anything other than underpairs. but yes, the bigger bet should help reduce lolcalls w hands like AQ/AK
