Re: NL10 AK oop in 3bet pot facing a calling station

A good cbet size is the right size for the situation. I see no reason to bet more than the amount I suggested. It accomplishes the same for less here. Villain isn't likely to fight back significantly more often if we cbet .9 vs cbetting 1.5. It's a 3b pot, either he likes this flop or he doesn't, and it's a cheaper price for getting to the turn to possibly spike a pair if he chooses to just call.

Occasionally he will also continue with worse because of the size. I'm pretty ok with that since we dominate a lot of the worse he'll peel one with that we're ahead of (Ax, Kx). And if we both improve, we're getting more from him.

I'm not sure why you think that a good cbet is 2/3 to 3/4 the pot. It's not, in many and arguably most situations.
