One that I use is "If you're OOP on a flop where you're gonna get floated or raised very often, don't c-bet at a high frequency or for a large size."
e.g. If you're in MP v BTN, a strong villain's not going to fold on 763tt very often, so most of the combos you c-bet should be able to withstand a raise or be comfortable on the majority of turn cards. (Not much of your range will feel great on any turn card that's a 10 or lower, especially if the flush gets there).
On KT4r, by contrast (a "scarier" board for the pre-flop caller), you have more hands that will have robust equity (e.g. all your Broadways and top pair+) and can generate fold equity by also barreling BDFDs, so you can c-bet that flop more often, and probably for a larger size too.

Re: No-Limit Hold ’em For Advanced Players by Matthew Janda Reviews and discussion

Hi Matt,
I just got finished with your new book and have to say I loved it! Before I bought it I watched the interview you with Jnanadez about it. This is ended up leading me to an old Cardrunners video you made where you at 200nl on Bovada (now Ignition). You started the video by saying you were going to use an almost completely exploitative style since everyone is anonymous on the site. I was wondering why this was? I can understand from the standpoint that YOU are completely anonymous, but so is everyone else. Wouldn't playing GTO be the best strategy? Also I wanted to add that these were regular tables an not Zone. Thanks!

Glad you like the book.

GTO is extremely hard to implement (it's impossible to implement perfectly, so it's just a matter of how close you can get) and it will only the best strategy against other GTO players.

NL$200 Bovada was very soft when those videos were made. So, good aggressive poker (bet/folding too much, not taking needlessly tricky lines, overbetting when villains range is capped, etc) without much worry about balance or being exploited is likely to be the best strategy at these specific games.

As you move higher and the tables are not anonymous, then balance becomes much more important.

Thanks Matt that makes a lot of sense. The reason I asked is because I wanted to give Ignition a try and wasn't exactly sure how to approach the anonymous tables. Just out of curiosity if you were to play in higher/tougher games, yet still anonymous, would you start to bring GTO into play?

I would just stick to my belief of "the further your line is from GTO, the stronger your read needs to be to justify it" and go from there
