This is my smallest cbet sizing. I cbet this amount when the flop hasn’t really improved my hand. However, the key difference here from before is that I catch a flop which hits my perceived range, not theirs. But I will also bet this amount on the boards that hit their perceived range as long as I am IP. When I am OOP on those flops, I check/fold, as we saw in the last section.

While I still don’t expect to get a ton of folds on the boards that hit their perceived range, I am in a much better spot being IP for many of the reasons that were discussed earlier.

  •   They have shown weakness
  •   We get to control the size of the pot

So here are a few examples both IP and OOP where I will cbet 60%,

Example:

I am OOP with,

And the flop comes,

Example:

And the flop comes,

Example:

I am IP with,

And the flop comes,

Example:

And the flop comes,

As a side note I will often bet even less (50-55%) when I catch a

flop and I have nothing. And especially when both X’s are lower rag type cards and there is no flush draw.

As I mentioned earlier, these are the kinds of flops that will be the scariest for our opponents because they nail our perceived range the hardest. You will often get lots of quick folds on them because it represents a way ahead/way behind situation for them. All of their small pairs, middle pairs and suited connectors are drawing very thin if we actually have the top pair that we are representing. And so therefore, we can often get away with an even smaller bet than usual since they are folding with such a high frequency anyways.

And just as a final note, I will also cbet on the smaller side in 3bet pots when I miss (50-55%) due to the lower SPR. Also, they are often going to fold to a bigger bet just as often as a smaller one so I may as well make it the lesser of the two.
