You are doing this all wrong!! You're leaving money on the table by missing c-bets in poker. This week we're joined by Spraggy for an MTT coaching session covering missed c-bets; when the big blind defends and we have the opportunity as the preflop aggressor to c-bet the flop but don't! These add up quickly and hence; cost you $. Make sure you have the strategy down.


  • Systematic approach to C-betting on different board textures
  • Importance of betting on 10-high boards and above
  • Adjusting strategy based on stack depth (35 big blinds as a key threshold)
  • Check-raising frequencies with top pair hands
  • Impact of position on betting and check-raising decisions
  • Differences in strategy for deep stack vs. short stack play
