    what is the best betsize for beginers in cash game

  • #2

    Bet size pre flop, if it folds around to you, at the lowest cash stakes? I'd make it 3x the big blind, so 6 cents at 2NL. Then "it depends" on the game, 6-max or full ring? You may decide 4x works better from early position. Then if you are stealing from late position perhaps reduce your open raise to 2.5x or as low as 2bb depending on the stakes.

    Post flop I would generally bet more than 1/2 pot, then up to 70% of pot, again "it depends" on the flop texture, my position and who the opponent is?

    A very general question that could get many answers and opinions.
