Re: Let's Have a Discussion about Open-Raise Sizes

Just a loose idea to get the thread started, villians tend to misplay turns a lot more then flops. Inflating the flop and betting hard gives the villian a spider sense as to where the hand will be headed; a big pot where he has to make a decision between a showdown for most of his chips or a fold.

We ultimately want to keep villians interested in the pot and not scared of it on the turn. A bigger raise preflop, in my opinion, contributed to villians tightening up on turns which is not good if we're a favourite, because by far the most villian mistakes come from the turn.
