      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      Hero ($4.08)
      BB ($4.15)
      UTG ($1.52)
      UTG+1 ($4)
      CO ($4.74)
      BTN ($5.79)

      Dealt to Hero 6:diamond: 6:spade:

      fold, fold, CO raises to $0.12, fold, Hero raises to $0.36, fold, CO calls $0.24

      FLOP ($0.76) 8:spade: 7:diamond: 9:diamond:

      Hero bets $0.49, CO calls $0.49

      TURN ($1.74) 8:spade: 7:diamond: 9:diamond: 5:club:

      Hero bets $1.20, CO folds

      Hero wins $1.63

      He is solid 23/18 player but in this session he was stealing my blinds too much.

      Is c-betting here ok? I didn't want c/call and loosing the initiative. When he calls my 3 bet he has high overcards (4bet = 0)

      What about turn? Should probably c/r?

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      Preflop: If he has been stealing a lot then 3betting here is totally fine.
      Flop: And yes, likely I'd rather CBet here with our GS+pair type of hand than Check/Call. If you planning to Check then rather Check/Fold.
      Turn: Nah, rather just bet it for protection from any kind of draw. I don't really like Check/Raise that often unless I have a good reason to think that he is floating with any kind of overcards or whatsoever.

      Best regards.
