Basic percentages for C-betting (with varied number of callers)....
Let's say you're on the button.
You raise about 7BB's to get only 1 caller. Head's up.
If villain does not have pocket pair, but just 2 overcards,
of V hitting the flop is 1/3 = 33%
The odds of V missing the flop is 2/3 = 67%
So, most of the time, V has missed and you want to C-bet to take the pot.
What if you get 2 callers to your PF raise?
Odds of BOTH MISSING the flop is 2/3 * 2/3 = 4/9 = 45%
Odds of ONE of them hitting the flop is (1/3 * 2/3) + (2/3 * 1/3) = 2/9 + 2/9 = 4/9 = 45%
Odds of BOTH of them HITTING the flop is 1/3 * 1/3 = 1/9 = 10%
So, with 2 callers, odds are that someone has paired the board.
Basically, coin flip is someone hit the board.
C-bet will not be as effective, unless you have TP, etc.
Is this good so far?
