Hi all,

Do you use same raise size in all situations.

if so why if not what do you do?

Not always. If I have a few aware players at the table I will randomize a bit. Say my std raise is to 3BB, I'll make that about ~80% of the time and raise to 2.5BB ~10% and 3.5BB ~10%. I typically use the second hand of my watch to randomize. I'll pick a 5 sec segment for each alternative play.

If you're at a table of unaware why bother. Just raise how much you want to as they don't notice.

Post flop play is more opponent oriented as I am interested in maxing value or minimizing losses as appropriate.
