Table full of 50/5 types that do fold.
All limp, I pfr AsKd/btn and 6-handed 92cJc flop is checked to me (12sb). Take the free card or bet and hope ep c-r folds many ppl?
Mostly I\'m interested in these desperation cont bets and trying to fold lots of ppl even if I\'m behind one of them just because the pot is big; just give them up instead?
You know all this stuff so I\'m just repeating it for my own sake but 1) although DavidC correctly points out nearly everyone has odds to call 2, that doesn\'t mean they will; these guys make as many postflop mistakes as pf and 2) 16+ sb pot to catch up in 2/3-handed can\'t happen if I check.
So because the pot\'s so big I want to help someone c-r me and why I\'m wondering if the thinking is wrong. 2nd question is whatever I do here, is it a big deal either way?
Something Ive thought about as well. Obviously player reads are a big factor like you stated. I tend to bet if checked to even if its 5 handed. Right now you are likely behind, and your hand is weak. If you do improve, your not likely to improve to anything greater then TPTK. I would rather try and get as many people out of the hand as possible for 1 small bet. You need as few opponents as possible. The pot is also large. If your c/r\'d, I would call but not put any further bets unless you improve.
I am curious if the DCT has any insight on this.
