sample so small it makes it tough, but if bet fold is in your gameplan why bet $50? The turn should not help any reasonable calling range and improves your hand as you pick up equity with the FD. If you are willing to bet/fold bc you have a tight read you can bet $30 and lose less..
In general the passive station is going to be less responsive to sizing. The exploitative play is to go for heaps when you go for value, but also to dump it if you run into any serious opposition without the goods already in your hands.

Re: Suitedjustice's Ongoing Mid-life Crisis

Here's one where I did reduce the relative sizing on the turn to target an Old Man Coffee's calling range, and I got shoved on again.

EP opens for $7, a nitty OMC calls in MP. I call on BTN 65 and $235 to start with. Both villains cover me.

(Pot $24) - Three Players

Flop: AJ8

EP checks, OMC bets $17, I raise to $50, EP Folds, OMC calls.

(Pot $124) - Two Players

Turn: J

OMC checks, I bet $60, OMC completes the check/shove for $178 total. He just about beat me into the pot with the shove.

(Pot $362) - Two Players, one is all in.

My baby flush needs only 25% equity. Am I ever good here? Who cares; pot odds! I call.

And you would be right, I think. Here are the only hands from an OMC that would both call the raise on the flop then check/shove the turn. Now, I'm being very optimistic in the first chart with including three combos of AxK and three combos of AxQ. He could just as easily lead or check/call with those.



Look what happens when we take just those few AxQ combos out.

Hai Colin! For you, I'll post cliffs:

I'm on a downswing, playing my B game in spots, and not playing enough.

And I posted a long rant about an old-timey song, in part to keep the thread from being shunted over to PG&C for having too high of a poker content ratio.

That should catch you up
