      Hello ragney,

      If you want to bet at all then do it on flop, otherwise as you played then just give it up on turn. As played then give it up on river. CBetting right on flop is a lot stronger move but while you skipped it and bet on turn, he has often times a lot looser range which he Calls there.

      Best regards.
