i c bet a lot early in tournaments when am the aggressor and an ace hits. I bet enough to find out how screwed I am lol. Sometimes take it down (sometimes get a flat call figure weak ace usually in that case) big decision there can you get the person off the pot or not with the weak ace? Sometimes they come back on me I know they have two pair or big ace and im dust take a lot of time debate toss hand.
With me being tournament player c betting is not easy the flop is everything in most cases and is the guy a chaser etc.. so history notes etc.. all matter. I am just talking the c bet bluff or semi bluff not that you hit a set top pair two pair etc..
I build patterns and bet 2-3 same as aa and show both at times lol.
depending on poker variance how am hitting luck table image who am playing styles etc..
C bet is one thing I know need to work on more and master though.
Am sure am not as aggressive as should be but mix up things a ton in games so as said probably needs thought research and work
Is more often then not to me the right move just I dont do it often enough I think. Is not how I play most days am more trapper let people kill selves so if they are c bettors I will wait and patiently trap them and kill them and me coming back at them will get them off games and if they call I could be bluffing
yet it wont be often so if they do catch me? Reversiing things? They are very lucky most times will be taking them down.
People get curious if you keep coming over top doing same bet on river etc.. sooner or later they begin to call usually is what I find.
Anyway that is the reverse of c betting turning it around on those that use it to much. Someone said can check stats but honestly just watch table is usually easy to see on most players
