This is a discussion on Rough guidelines on bet sizing within the online poker forums, in the Tournament Poker section; Hey everyone!
Does anyone have a guide/chart that can give me a rough idea about when to bet small/minbet, 1/3 , 2/3 of the stack
Does anyone have a guide/chart that can give me a rough idea about when to bet small/minbet, 1/3 , 2/3 of the stack or push? If possible with tourney/sng stages.
I feel like I bet randomly way too often.
Think about your perceived range of hands and bet what makes sense for those hands, manipulating the number as you see fit to get cheaper bluffs or heavier value where you think you can. For instance, if I'm the preflop aggressor and a dry ace-high flop comes I'll generally bet small because it favors my range and is not a threatening board. I'll size up with more threatening boards.
As a very general rule you'll do alright if your bet sizing looks like 30-60% on the flop, 50-70% on the turn and 80-120% on the river.
If online, bet 3x preflop and postflop depending on cards and position bet 1/4 or 1/2 of the pot. If live, always be agressive, bet 2.5x preflop, but for stronger hands like AQs+, 99+ bet more specially when out of position.
Do research on how to play against LAGS and TAGS. Have preflop chart to guide on when to play a hand and what position to play in.
