6 handed or more pf no raise, raised 4 handed pf, 3 bet pf, 2 opponents will usually go to river.
If the pot is extremely large
forgo a flop raise if it means you will be bet into on the turn.
Factors that indicate checking behind the turn with a mediocre hand.
you don’t know how to handle being raised (+), if you are ahead you opponent doesn’t have many outs( + ), if you are behind you have outs (+), pot is small (+)
Protecting you hand vs pot size
the smaller the pot the less you need to protect your hand.
Criteria for waiting to raise the turn when bet into on the flop
raising now has little chance of inducing folds, your hand is vulnerable so your edge is small, if a favorable turn card comes you edge will increase.
When the pot is large, how should you value bet on the river
bet your marginal hands for value more because people will lower their standards for calling on the river.
If the flop is paired and you have overcards
it is better to have an ace overcard since noone might make a hand by the river and a-high might be best.
In marginal situations with overcards be more inclined to continue when
he may be betting a weak hand or a draw than a strong hand.
If you raise pf, the flop comes all (M-L-L) or (L-L-L) with 2 suited or 2 to a straight and an aggressive player bets into you
he is more likely to have a draw since he thinks you missed and he probably would cr a made hand since he knows you will bet.
Likelyhood of a flop bettor having a made hand
timid player betting ragged board > aggressive player betting coordinated board.
When to fire the second barrel unimproved
The fewer that are left and the weaker their possible range of hands, the more you should bet. Were there possible overcards? Were there possible draws on the flop? The best time to follow the turn is when it was moderately coordinated.
When your opponent is passive and bets into you/ raises you on the flop
You can make more marginal calls if there is a good chance he will give up on the turn.
When calculating pot odds
always be aware of the possibility of a raise behind you.
Instantaneous raises
indicate strength somewhat preflop if from early or middle position, more on the turn, and most on the river but not on the flop. Some opponents will instantaneously raise the turn when planning on checking the river.
A delay followed by a check
usually means weakness.
A delay followed by a bet
usually means strength
