EVERYONE and their grandmother does this.

It's inexcusable not to c-bet especially if you're the preflop raiser especially with position on your opponents and when there are few to the flop.

I've discovered I have a bit of a leak in my game when it comes to c-betting and I think the c-bet although a staple of any poker players strategy, should still be used wisely and not become an automatic click and raise action.

Take a scenario like this:

I have c-bet 90% of the time when heads up against an opponent.

This time, I have KQoff.

I raised 3x bb preflop.

Player X calls and flop comes down - J Spade 2 Club 9 Diamond

There's an inside straight draw and I have two over cards - 10 outs

The board looks arid, I c-bet as usual 2/3 pot.

They call, turn comes 8 Spade

I find myself still betting at this stage more than I should - often I'd bet again despite the fact they called two bets into them. So obviously they have a made hand.

The mistake isn't so much betting the flop, it's re-betting when the turn hits with another blank.

Any advice? What's your leak?

If you bet the turn you are bluffing. What is the position in that scenario? If you are in position you can take the free card, if he should check to you. If you are oop and he bets after you have checked you are more or less forced to fold, if you don't want to make an even bigger bluff whith a check-raise, pretending to have made the straight.

Yeah of course the turn is a bluff.

What I was saying is that I tend to continue to take a pot down when there is minimal resistance, but looking back of course, the call on the flop means they have some sort of hand or draw, and even AceX beats my hand therefore I should give it up.

It's funny how sometimes, unless you see your mistakes in writing, you don't appreciate the fact you are making them. It's visual reinforcer.
