Assessing how dynamic a board is

  • Warwick (Congleton)

I need some clarification on assessing how dynamic a board is. What are you looking for to make this determination?

When does a board become more dynamic and concerning-and we would either later our bet size or bluff less/check more frequently? Is this based on: how close in rank the cards are? if all 3 cards are close in rank-rather than just 2? if the cards are of middling rank rather than high or low rank? 

If we are the pre flop lead on static boards do we always bet out 33% even if it hasn't hit our perceived range e.g.T 6 2. as opposed to a flop containing 1 high card? Obviously the latter is more likely to take the pot down. Are we not concerned that middling cards even if disconnected are more likely to hit villain's range? 

Are paired boards always static boards-whatever the rank? 

If the board contains 2 broadways and a low card the training module suggests these are just slightly dynamic, but surely villains is likely to have stayed in with hands that could hit these strongly, esp. if no A or K

How coordinated/dynamic does a board need to be before we would alter our bet size or even start checking more frequently?

Hands which cause difficulty are those with 2 middling-high cards and a third which is not fully disconnected e.g. KJ8 | QJ7 | JT6 | QT9 | KQ9 | J96 etc.

Are these considered highly dynamic or is this reserved for 3 cards all close in rank?
