      Against this opponent, should I c/c instead of bet flop?

      Hi,

      If I have no history, then standard play should be c-bet. They are just c/f too many times and very rarely play back. if you get called, then you can always either decide to barrel for bluff/value or check back and evaluate river (likely going to call if he bet smt like half pot)

      As played: if you check back then calldown seems fine play.

      best regards,
