betting flop then checking turn
With a big hand, against passive calling station types, firing three barrels is just fine no need to get tricky.
But against aggressive villains that like to float and steal against you with reasonable but beatable hands, I find that a more effective way to feign weakness and induce aggression is to bet the flop and check/raise the turn, than checking flop then c/r turn.
It's particularly effective if I raised preflop and get flatted by the villain in position. If I nail a strong flop on a board (generally top two pairs, set, fh), I'd throw out what looks like a cbet. Then when I get called, I will check.
From my experience, villains just have an easier time not giving me credit when I check raise them on the turn after cbetting the flop than if I flat call the flop and then c/r the turn.
Does anyone find the same results?
