For topping, how far ‘down the stem’ do I go?

For topping, how far ‘down the stem’ do I go? Like the first set of fan leaves at the very top that branch out in either direction (which doesn’t take off very much) or 2nd set down or 3rd set down, or?
In other words how much do i chop off? And do i just make 1 clean cut to the main stalk ?
Thanks, DT

I top anywhere from above the 5th to 7th node.

Agree with @Caligurl that will give you a nice bushy plant (I lean closer to the 5th node)
