C-betting the flop is one thing. Many hand values change preflop to the flop, and its typically pretty difficult to flop anything. Most players have fold to c-bets that are higher than 50%, so c-betting is almost always going to be profitable.
Fold to turn bet is another thing completely. There's only one additional card, so playing Hold'em, its rare that hand values change from the flop to the turn. If they called the flop, they're probably calling the turn. Most player's fold to turn c-bet reflects this, as its less than 40% for the most part.
And another point to think about
: now we have a hand, and the only hands we're going to be able to bluff out on the turn are hands that we beat. 75 got there, so 35, 78, 77 and 55 are really the only draws we can continue to charge, and they might not call another barrel.
So bluffing's no good because we won't get enough hands that have us beat to fold. V-betting's no good because most hands we have beat won't call. So what do you think we should do?
Jesus, use your brain rather than just the old poker sayings like "winning poker is aggressive poker" and crap like that.
