— By using continuation bets both when you do flop your hand and when you miss, your opponents will have trouble discerning whether the flop has actually hit you.
When to Make a Continuation Bet As mentioned above, you do not want to limit your continuation bets to the times when you make your hand. When you were the pre-flop raiser in the hand, it is a good idea to continuation bet about 60-70% of the time, whether you have hit the board or not.
In a multi-way pot you will have a much tougher decision as to whether or not to come out firing on the flop. Be careful if your opponents start to check raise your continuation bets often, you will need to adjust your continuation betting strategy accordingly.
