How much should I bet? After the flop, the usual starting bet is two-thirds the size of the pot (the total that has already been bet). So if the pot stands at $9, you should bet around $6. If you want to re-raise, you should aim for two and a half times the previous player’s bet.
Do you bet after the flop?
A continuation bet is a bet on the flop after you have raised pre-flop. If you were the pre-flop aggressor, normally a continuation bet is in order. These bets are successful because you have represented a strong hand and now you are “continuing” with that representation.
Should you c bet if you miss the flop?
Simply put, if you continuation bet too rarely you end up missing many outright profitable bluffs. But if you continuation bet too often, especially in the wrong spots (like out of position or in multi-way pots), you will lose so many unnecessary pots.
Should you always check the flop?
The flop is dealt T♥ 9♦ 5♠. You should heavily consider checking in this scenario, unless you are playing against a recreational player who is likely to make a mistake versus a bet. The reasons behind checking here are pretty complex: It mostly has to do with the fact that the equity is split between 3 players.
How often should you CBet flop?
So despite the fact that how often I make a CBet will vary quite a bit depending on the player type, I do have a general rule of thumb that I recommend. And that is to make a CBet on the flop roughly 70% of the time.
What is a good C-bet percentage?
Even very competent players fumble their c-bet sizes. For instance, many live players are fond of betting either half- or two-thirds pot, habitually, and no matter the situation. Nowadays, anywhere between 25–100% of the pot is a reasonable c-bet.
