      Did villian have a high cbet% ? I would probably check call flop and check raise turn as villian won't have something like 64o/s too often. The board isn't the greatest but we can't expect him to show up with the nuts here too often.

      Hi,


      It's really hard to say without knowing anything about the BU. Generally:


      - the more he steals preflop, the wider his range, the weaker his hand in that spot. that means more c-bets if he c-bets air, and less c-bets if he doesn't c-bet air.

      - the more he c-bets, the more you want to check to him


      If you don't know you can't really go wrong, although it's probably better to just play it strong and bet yourself, at least this way you won't ever feel bad if he sucks out on you, it's better for your overall mindset :p


      Hope it helps.
