      You have to think about what his range is and how he reacts with it.

      Imo he has PPs and some SCs here most of the time. I'm not sure if we can ever get him to fold those, but if he's folding them at some point then I assume it's not the flop.

      So I think if we bet we should do it with the plan of shoving the turn. So if I bet I make it $12 on the flop and shove the turn with the remaining $30.

      Having said that, since he's a huge fish and we don't really expect him to fold on the flop I think we can just c/f. After all we don't really want to bluff the fish for stacks.

      Btw one option would also be to check/shove the flop if you have some read that he has a lot of broadway-hands in his range and likes to stab when someone shows weakness.
