1: Always bet smaller on dry boards and slightly bigger on wet boards.
2: The smaller the effective stack size should always be smaller bets, thus same applies to when when effective stack sizes are deeper we should be betting bigger. The reason is because stack to pot ratio is smaller.
3: You want to remain balanced with your bluffs and big hands. Don't bet bigger just because you have a big hand it even becomes transparent at micros. Just bet the size you would with normal CB's etc.
4: Play tighter in early stages, there is little to gain. As blinds increase and antes come into play and stack sizes get smaller you should open your game.
Example: Ok, so we need to narrow his range down. For this sort of player I still expect to see most pocket pairs calling and hands like ATs+ AJo+ Probably unlikely much else in his range given how tight he is. Of course this might change if there are antes in place but I'm just assuming not.
Given board texture is all hearts, I'd bet like 60-70%, if he check raises I'd be inclined to just muck straight away as it's unlikely he's bluffing
. If we bet and he calls I'd defiantly be cautions on the turn/river. No, not for 40bb effective he will very rarely have worse if we bet every street on two blanks and he calls down. Yes he could have draws if he raises but don't forget he's tight and has position therefore, it's more likely he has already a made hand + some more equity like for example we could be drawing nearly dead if he sets or top pair good kicker with back door flush draw etc. At best if this sort of player raises this board we have the same hand but he's unlikely to bluff raise with that hand unless he has a heart with it. All in all, it's not a problem folding hands like this the board is terrible for our hand vs this player vs aggression...
