Hi, villain is playing 21/15/3 - fold to 3B=67% and AF=1,4.
I'm facing these problems often, and I think that there's maybe a leak on myplay here. Although I filtered my 3B hands that I've played ou ot position and I had a solid profit I want some tips here.
SHould I've c-bet this flop ? Villain is never folding overpairs and sometimes folding AK.
What kind of flops we shouldn't c-bet on 3B pots OOP ?
Since a lot of times I've found myself c-betting A high and having to check fold the turn, which seems so weak.
Any thoughts ?

Im never cbetting that flop i prefer a delayed cbet whn he checks and sometimes il call a flop bet and see if they check the turn and if a blank hits river il bet and take the pot.

When you are in a 3bet pot no one is folding that flop they will see if you bet the turn and if you dont they will take it away from you, which is why i prefer a delayed cbet.

Its Zoom so I want Max Value for my hand AK out of Position to a Raise, I'm All in !

Good 3bet and your called to a very draw heavy Board, you CBET correct and get called
River looks very strong either a Flush, Straight draw or set 10's so good fold

Something you could of tried was to check the Flop if he bets then Check Raise which looks super strong now. If he shoves well you know now your behind, if he calls he is drawing or 10's, JJ
You miss with AK on Turn well hand over move on

Or as its Zoom and players are waiting to get hands paid, Flop check if he bets drop the hand. Weak but you looking to hit the Flop and that is why in zoom you can get out played on the flop with AK so my shove pre flop would be for me. Ship it

Hi fp

I think your line is pretty standard. You c-bet and get called. It seems likely the villain is holding a pair. The only big issue is that you sized your c-bet too large. On a dry board like this one you have no need to be betting more than 50% of the pot. This would have saved you 3 bb.

I think c-betting the flop or checking with the intention of c-betting the turn are both viable approaches. It really depends on what range you put the villain on. In other words are you betting primarily for value or are you betting primarily as a semi-bluff hoping to get a fold. This notion will help you determine which flops are best for c-betting or not. I tend to look at the fold to c-bet stat as well as aggression level before barrelling the flop or double barreling again on the turn as a semi-bluff though. With all the preflop action, the pot will get out of control pretty fast.

@Dodgy, I think shoving pre will more often get you value owned. You will be winning small pots and losing big ones.

GL!
