When we the hero in the hand (AGGRESSOR), make a a large size flop bet (75% OR MORE) to DEFINE our opponents range, are we allowing our opponents to play perfect poker against us by letting them fold their marginal hands and draws? So many accomplished players have different views on this that Im become very confused! Your thoughts are much appreciated.

Not if you bet your bluffs the same. then they still can't define. But pressure is a constant. In any game pressure is an invaluable intangible. Pressure is the key to poker. I good sized bet in a good sized pot means they can't respond without the thought in their head that they may have to play for their stack.

Cause they know it's liable to come again. They have to face it twice or maybe three times. Or maybe all at once. INTIMIDATE. smarter players than I advise a more conservative, small ball approach. But I say play with big balls. Cut nuts. It creates fear, and fear is an invaluable asset.
