FINALLY TPC HAS COME BACK TO CARSDS chat!
I agree with what has been said about the opening raise size being too big. With that being said, I feel many players are aware of c betting and it's not as effective as it use to be. When c betting with air we need some sort of read that tells
us villain is going to fold to c bets. So if we c bet with air and no reads, we need to do so on boards that look like they could hit our range. So, say it folds to you in the lo jack, you decide to raise with middle suited connectors, and the flop is A92 rainbow, c betting here is probably going to be more successful. Also, if you do get called you could pick up a draw on the turn, make a pair, whatever. Makes checking behind on the turn easier. You're not going to see many players trying to out play you oop while holding air. So don't think everyone is trying to resteal the pot from you, unless you have some sort of read that says so.
