Re: tptk betsize on flop
I don't really know how to answer that question since it depends on so many different externals. Stack sizes, who the opponent(s) are and how I read them? Did I raise pre? From what position? Did I call a raise? How much was the call? What does the flop look like? How big is that top pair? Do I have redraws?
There are also those occasions where the best policy is to bet nothing on the flop. If I raised from an up front position, the board makes a TPTK, but is likely to not produce draws, I just might check it. If the opponent knows that that raise coming from an early position likely means big pocket pair or AK, declining the c-bet he's expecting might confuse him. Against weaker players, sometimes you can give that freebie if it leads him to believe his TP and not-so-good kicker just might be good.
