      Well, I guess if you got some reads on him, then maybe. But if you don't have any good reads, just go for the standard c-bet. Remember it doesn't have to work so often to be profitable.

      By his stats he seems to have such a wide range that he'll have to fold very often on missed flops.

      Hey Tim64,

      even if opponent looks very loose passive postflop you only have 19 hands on him and therefore all postflop stats are useless and you should take him as unknown and c-bet the flop. If you had many hands on him you could look at the fold2c-bet, but otherwise I'm just betting flop.

      Regards,
