    A couple of questions for bet sizing.
    1) Standard post flop raise sizes IP/OOP in HU SRP
    2) Standard post flop cbet sizes in 3bet/4bet, and squeezed pots.
    3) Post flop raise sizes in "bloated" pots
    4) Barreling bet sizes after raising a cbet.
    5) Adjustments vs short and deep stacks.
    6) Adjustments in multi-way pots.
    7) Adjustments based on board texture.

    Hey everyone:

    We'll be recording this webinar in about a week, so if you have any questions on raising the flop, please drop them in here now. Also taking questions in the sister thread for the November presentation on bet sizing.

    Thanks ~ Kat

    Is this also the place to ask him any questions about the presentation?
    (tagging @w34z3l).

    Adam explains why we should be inclined to raise more often facing smaller c-bets on the flop. One of the reasons he states (or has stated in another video actually) is that we don't want to let villian "get away" with using smaller sizings and realise more equity. I always like to think of it the other way around: we should be inclined to raise *less frequently* when facing *larger* c-bets. The reason for this is that as the c-bettor's size increases his range becomes more polarized, and raising against a polarized range makes no game-theoretic sense. Am I correct there?

    I'll get back to you on the process of w34z3l interacting here, need to clear something with HQ.

    To provide a partial answer to your question, not only does a larger c-bet mean a more polarized range, but population analysis also suggests a stronger one. In fact probably a better way of saying it is that the population tends to bet larger with stronger hands, and the better ones will do so when they're polarized since it's theoretically sound, as you note.

    I suspect there's also a tacit MDF-like argument here, in that we need to defend smaller c-bets wider, and raising is part of that defense strategy.
