First part of my question -- I keep seeing people talking about "common lines" of poker.. anyone have any examples?
The other part of my question was about common poker plays - for example the continuation bet. I assume there are other common tactical plays other than the c-bet.
One example of a poker line I'll sometimes use is this ..
In position, in a pot where i've hit a strong value hand on the flop, I'll do a small c-bet, if the villain calls, then on the turn I'll either check or call if he bets, hoping he will see this as weak and give me a strong river bet that I can re-raise. I usually use this against aggressive players that have been pushing me out of pots with a lot of re-raises or double barrels, etc.
not sure if that makes more sense??
