Thanks for this! I've been seeing this play a lot lately, especially live. I always call if I have decent outs, and I feel like a sucker when the turn bricks and I get pushed off. But I likely would have called a half pot or 3/4 pot, so I got of cheap. I seriously think folding too much is a bigger leak for a lot of players trying to get out of being a beginner fish.

My understanding of the strategy - the small c-bet allows you to profitably bluff on a wide-range of boards which your opponent is unlikely to have hit. If they are on some kind of draw, then turns that favour you warrant a large turn bet in order foldout their equity when bluffing, and maximising value when not. But you can't just do this on ALL board textures.
