      Hi,


      I'm fine with the flop c-bet even tho it's not a prime flop to do so, he should still have enough broadway cards he can fold to warrant trying to take it down. If he's also peeling with overcards on the flop then i'd just try to check it down unless i'm willing to fire multiple barrels.

      From then on it's a grayish area, you shouldn't usually get into the habit of barreling 52/10 villains often, they love calling too much and they have a hard time giving you credit for scarecards. Especially don't fire the turn without firing the river unless it's an ugly one, which you didn't so it's fine on that aspect.


      Hope it helps.
