The delayed cbet, when and why?
You can delayed cbet for a ton of reasons. One of them is that our hand is good, but not excellent and that our opponent is very aggressive. If you bet an average hand on the flop and you are playing against a player who likes to raise at a very high frequency, you may be embarrassed by his raise. In that case, you may prefer to do a delayed cbet. We can also do a delayed cbet when we have too strong a hand on a flop that doesn't give our opponent a chance. If you have AA in hand on AA2, betting on the flop is not the best option.
