      This guy seemed to flat call every C-bet then take away on the turn. What is the best line to make this less of a leak.

      My adjustment for the evening was to only c-bet good hands against him but none occurred. I stopped C-betting however.

      Don't know what to do.

      Thanks,
      G.

      Hey Jimanyjerk,

      As you said yourself best adaptation is to start playing value hands only against this opponent until you get some reads about what exactly is he doing. But from his stats and according to the hands he could easily be playing for value in those spots.

      If you think he is abusing you and bluffing you a lot then you can try to c-bet and then bluff check/raise all-in turn. However, for such a move I would need some more hands on him and maybe see a showdown or two.

      #1

      It's a quite wet board that has unlikely hit your range so you might want to just c/f against an opponent who is known to not fold to c-bets.

      #2

      I would play the same way until I would get some more information on the opponent.

      Best regards,
