      Easy fold, he will never do this with worse and I doubt he is good enough to turn his hand into a bluff here.

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Just CB & done doesn't work that great and you will be exploitable. Then rather just Check/Fold the flop. But otherwise bet the river smaller cause you are betting for thin value and Bet/Fold it of course.

      Best Regards.

      I C-Bet the flop cause it hits my perceived range, AJ,KJ,QJ, JJ+ and the flop is rather dry which is also why I bet a small size on the flop. Would you recommend C-Betting the turn also then if I bet the flop.

      I didn't C-Bet the turn because anything that called the flop would call the turn besides my equity didn't improve neither did my fold equity change.

      Wouldn't check/folding be too weak on this board?

      Why would it be too weak? You are rather having a leak with such a plan to Check/Fold the turn. You are wasting money here more often whilst you pick such a line than you would do that with just Check/Folding the flop.

      Ok, thanks for pointing it out. I'll take care of it in future.

      No problem just take yourself as villain and what would you do against an opponent who CBs a lot on the flop but turn has rather low CB. ;)
